LORAIN, Ohio - A Lorain police cruiser was found vandalized with gang and police-disparaging acronyms outside an officer’s home early Tuesday morning.
Police said it happened sometime after 2:30 a.m. Officer Craig Payne reported that the police-issued 2008 Chevy Tahoe parked in front of his home after returning from work was marked in multiple places.
Black spray paint was used to black out police markings on the driver’s side of the cruiser and also across the front and back windshields, according to police. They also said the driver’s window was painted over.
“LK” was painted on the front windshield and “FTP” on the back driver’s side window and windshield.
Officers said they believe the incident is retaliation for a previous arrest but have not made any arrests.
An investigation will continue.
