A graffiti "artist" left similar words and phrases at two Edmond schools, police said.
The incidents at Central Middle School, 500 E. Ninth St., and at Oklahoma Christian Academy, 1101 E. Ninth St., were both reported July 24 and are related, police said.
Early that morning, Edmond Police Officer Paul Phillips was dispatched to Central Middle School in reference to vandalism, according to a report filed by Phillips.
At the school, a maintenance worker told Phillips when he arrived that morning he found a large amount of graffiti at the school, police said. He also showed the officer several places he found July 21. More than 28 locations had been tagged with graffiti including doors, windows and air conditioner units on the roof, police said.
The common theme on the majority of the tags were the letters “SCK” and the words “Venom Marshin Goblin,” police said.
Police said the graffiti artist or artists caused a total of $550 worth of damage to the school building and to a trash bin.
Not long after that call, Phillips responded to Oklahoma Christian Academy in reference to vandalism, according to a separate report filed by Phillips.
At the school an administrator said when she arrived that morning she found some graffiti around the school, police said. A trash bin, stop sign and brick wall had been tagged with graffiti, police said.
The tags included the letters and words also found on graffiti at Central Middle School. Police said the vandalism caused $350 in damage to the trash bin and school building.
At the time the reports were filed there was no suspect information, police said.
