SALT LAKE CITY -- A few tips have come in, but Granite District police are still hoping someone can identify the teenagers caught on camera tagging a district building.

The huge, colorful cubist markings are covered now with gray paint, but police say they matched tagging that has appeared throughout the valley.

Few tips, but no arrests in building vandalism

Granite District Police Chief Randy Johnson says, "There were five individuals who were tagging on the side of our building, and one of them could have been similar to the ones that were up on the highway signs on I-215."

A surveillance camera caught the vandals in the act on March 1 around 3:20 a.m.

He says it's dangerous, disturbing, and costly. Johnson said, "It's upsetting to the children to see the tagging, so we do our very best to get it removed as quickly as we can, and we have surveillance cameras to protect our buildings."

Few tips, but no arrests in building vandalism

This was a maintenance building owned by the district near I-15 and 3000 South.

The video is nine minutes long, and because a dispatcher was able to take control of the camera while it was happening, you can easily see two of the taggers faces.

If you recognize anyone in this video, call Granite School District Police Department at 801-481-7122.
