DAPHNE, Alabama (WKRG) – Daphne Police are investigating after owners said their property was vandalized on Captain O’Neal Drive Sunday.
A boat, patio furniture and a wooden playhouse were littered with graffiti and vulgar language. The owners say two young teenagers walked into their property on Sunday afternoon and brought spray paint with them. The couple are seen on surveillance video waving their hands towards the camera and then spraying paint on a second camera moments later.
âIt’s disturbing that they are doing it on purpose because they brought the spray paint with them. They spray painted our kid’s play set which is just mean and mean but kids make mistakes. We hope that they will learn from it, that they will not do it again, and that their parents will know more about where they are and what they are doing. We’re taking steps to make sure they’re held accountable for what they’ve done, so hopefully they never will, âsaid Michelle Bigler.
The house, which sits along Mobile Bay, was the only house targeted, it seems. The owners say they do not recognize the two people seen on the surveillance video.
