    The person who police believe spray-painted eight different places in downtown St. Albans, Vermont, this month is seen in an image handed out by police Thursday.

    The St. Albans Police Department is asking the public to contact them if they have any information about the person pictured, who is scaling a fence in the image they shared.

    The graffiti-tagging spree over the weekend of Oct. 11 took place on buildings, the parking garage and other property in St. Albans' downtown.

    The taggings motivated community members to call on their neighbors to step up and ensure better treatment of their prized downtown district.

    The town had recently funded millions of dollars of dramatic improvements to Main Street, as well as beautification to the downtown park and other work. That brought in stores, restaurants and offices and created fresh energy that’s really helped turn around a city once thought to be in decline, according to the Franklin County Chamber of Commerce said.

    “A lot of people have worked very hard to revive this downtown and we are being touted as a model of small downtown revitalization, so for someone to disrespect that with graffiti, it’s kind of a slap,” chamber manager Lisamarie Charlesworth said at the time.

    Anyone with information about the person seen in the police handout image, or generally about the case, can contact police at 802-524-2166.
