ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — At least four Albuquerque Police Department substations were vandalized overnight.

Bright red paint was splattered and spayed across police signs, windows and sidewalks.

City crews spent much of the day cleaning up the mess.

A group of volunteers from a local car club heard about the mess and decided to roll up their sleeves to help.

"Someone had mentioned like, 'Oh more tax money wasted on cleaning graffiti,' and I was like, 'Well this would be the perfect opportunity to step up maybe you know, help out a little bit,'" volunteer William Jacob Anaya said.

It's unclear who was responsible for the string of graffiti.

Volunteers said that violence and vandalism are not the answers no matter who you support.

"It's our community. We all live here. So if the community would just come together a little more, often we could prevent stuff like this from happening," Anaya said.

The substations aren't the first to be hit by vandals. After a 12-hour protest last week, police found graffiti throughout downtown Albuquerque, including on another APD substation.

KOAT Action 7 News is following this developing story and will update it as soon as more information is available.

Because spray paint always prevents authority.

More than talking shit on the Internet.
Seriously, 4 in a night. That's some brave shit. Glad whoever did it got away

Oh so brave...spray painting graffiti then running away. The cops must be shaking in their jackboots.

Nice point. You understand a lot of things. Very well analyzed. Glad to hear your point of view.

This article is the soft policing PR stunt of a town in total denial.
