Murfreesboro business vandalized with graffiti

Posted: Updated:
MURFREESBORO, Tenn. -  For the second time in a week vandals have tagged a Murfreesboro business with graffiti.

The latest happened at the Olympus Athletic Club at 2892 South Church Street.

Manager Dustin Moore told News 2 an employee discovered the graffiti on the back wall as she was closing Friday night.

The vandals struck again Saturday.

"We drive around to the back of the building when we leave, just make sure the doors are locked and things like that. She said someone had put spray paint and graffiti on the back wall," Moore explained.

The graffiti included the numbers 666 and several mysterious symbols. "Can't Stop the Youth" was also painted on the wall.

Moore believes his club was chosen at random.

"I'm not sure why anybody would target us for something like that," he said. "I think it's attributed to some of the young kids that are bored and don't have much to do out there, and this is what they've chosen to do."

Last week, vandals targeted Robinson Towing on West College Street. Eight cars were vandalized and two set on fire. View a slideshow here.

On several cars, the vandals painted "KKK" and they left a written note on one of the windshields, warning they would be back to burn down the building.

A Murfreesboro fire spokesperson told News 2 they have a person of interest in that vandalism case and will interview them in the next few days.

A spray paint can was found in the grass behind the athletic club. The fire marshall said they did not get any fingerprints from the scene of the first vandalism but they might get prints off of the can.

If you know anything about either case you're asked to call Murfreesboro Crime Stoppers at 615-893-STOP (7867).
