On 9/18/22 at approximately 0148 hours, the La Junta Police responded to 11 E 3rd St. (Fox Theater), in the City of La Junta, County of Otero, and the State of Colorado for the report of 3 male suspects that had spray painted graffiti on the side of the building.

When LJPD arrived on scene they spoke with the owner of the Fox Theater who stated there were three male suspects who came from 2nd street walking south through the alleyway between Colorado Ave. and Raton Ave. The three males had spray painted "SDE" and "Look 22" on multiple businesses in the area.

They were captured on cameras located on multiple businesses in the area. The La Junta Police are asking the community to check their cameras if they've got graffiti please submit footage to LJPD to help them stop the vandalization of our community and businesses.

Also, you are encouraged to report graffiti on your property so guilty parties are held responsible for each tag.
