    Massachusetts State Police are investigating graffiti left on the Statehouse and two nearby buildings over the weekend.

    Police say the Statehouse's exterior was vandalized in two places, while a Department of Conservation and Recreation guard building and a private residence were also defaced.

    The graffiti was discovered at about 2 a.m. Sunday.

    Most of the tags consisted of words and random letters, except for the guard house, which had splashes of paint on it. The exact words and letters were not made public to preserve the integrity of the investigation.
