Graffiti in Alaska has been left for days with no sign of the vandal who broke into the road last month, prompting police to close off a section of highway.
A week later the same man was arrested in another part of the state.
Alaska Highway Patrol Sergeant Brian G. Brown says that he’s received a handful of reports of graffiti on highways in the last few days.
But, Brown says, there have been no reports of any serious damage.
The vandalism began when the vandal went to a road in Alaska, which is about 80 kilometres from the capital of the province, Fairbanks, and began writing on it.
“That was the beginning of the graffiti,” Brown said.
He says the graffiti was on the right-hand side of the road, near a sign that says, “No trespassing, no breaking the law”.
Brown says the vandalism appeared overnight.
It’s unclear whether the man who broke in had a gun.
Brown said the investigation is still ongoing.
Brown is urging anyone who may have seen the graffiti or who has information on who did it to contact the police department.
For the past week, there has been no news of any arrests in the case.
