Helena murals and historic buildings vandalized

Posted: 12/04/2017 16:48:00 -07:00 Updated:

More than two dozen properties in downtown Helena, including murals and historic buildings, have been vandalized.

According to Helena Police, the first instances showed up around Nov. 30.

All the vandalized properties were “tagged” with black paint and shared the same design.

The Helena Police Department says that they don’t have a complete list of everything that has been vandalized, but given the number of locations already discovered the suspect or suspects will likely face felony charges.

HPD Assistant Chief of Police Steve Hagen says that damages to the historic properties and murals will be difficult to clean without potentially causing more damage.

“One of them is the trolley,” says Hagen. “That’s a symbol of downtown, its symbol of the walking mall and to paint on that it just, it makes no sense. It just shows disrespect for the community and for the people property you’ve damaged.”

Other vandalized properties include The Montana Club, the Placer Building, the Performance Square historic mural and many more.

HPD says that if you have any information about the vandalism you are encouraged to contact the Helena Police Department at (406) 442-3233.

If you prefer to remain anonymous you can contact (406) 443-2000 and you could be eligible for a cash reward.
