Randall Jeppesen reporting An unusual graffiti tag has BYU police wondering where it came from.

Utah County's graffiti problem has been growing a lot lately, but one tag that showed up on the BYU campus has police taking an extra look.

Lt. Arnold Lemmon says it has the name of a political extremist from India. "It appears, on the Internet, that there's a campaign going to oust him, to counter his efforts," he said.

Police haven't been able to find any other graffiti tags like this one in the entire county. So for now, they think maybe it was just a coincidence, a fluke or a copycat. But they'll be keeping an eye out.
