Marietta cops seek tips to stop uptick in graffiti near Roswell 

The Marietta Police Department is looking for help to curb the recent rise of graffiti.

Agency spokesman officer Charles McPhilamy said the epicenter of the vandalism is Roswell Road at Powers Ferry Road. From there, the spray painters have moved east to the city of Roswell, he said.

The department has posted pictures of the graffiti to its Facebook page.

“We don’t have any suspects at the moment, (but) we’d love to hold the people accountable for defacing property they’ve defaced,” he said.

It’s been mostly private property that’s been vandalized during the past month, he said. There’s been no consistent message.

“At the moment, there are no known ties to gangs, but if we investigate any incident of graffiti and it leads to that, then we’ll pursue any charges related to that,” he said.

If you’d like to report something, the Marietta police tip line is 770-794-6990.
