continued Hayes said the investigation into last summer’s rash of graffiti incidents is currently closed, “but we’re still trying to be as vigilant as possible.”
Similarly, Cazenovia police have closed the investigation into the nine graffiti incidents that occurred during the early morning hours of Saturday Dec. 7 in the village after exhausting all leads in the case, Hayes said. Like the summer graffiti case, the December graffiti case is currently “closed, but active,” he said.
The Dec. 9 incidents included three large pieces in the “Wall Street” alley between Kinney Drugs and Café Latte Da, two on the Lindenfeld Law Firm office at 11 Lincklaen St., one on the side of the U.S. Post Office on Lincklaen Street, one on a U.S. Postal Service mail truck, one on the window of the old gas station next to the defunct Napa building on Albany Street and one on the stop sign at the corner of Center and Albany Streets. At the time of the incidents, Hayes said the perpetrators could be the same ones from the summer incidents.
