    Police Seek Suspect Accused of Vandalizing State House

    Boston Police are searching for a man suspected of vandalizing several buildings downtown, including the Massachusetts State House.

    (Published Thursday, March 7, 2019)

    Massachusetts State Police have released surveillance images of a man suspected of vandalizing the exterior of the State House as well as a private residence early Sunday morning.

    Authorities said the graffiti was discovered on two corners of the State House, at a Department of Conservation and Recreation guard building, a private residence on the corner of Mount Vernon and Hancock Streets, and on the Fiedler Foot Bridge.

    Much of the graffiti consisted of words "expressing strong political beliefs".

    Police say the vandalism was likely done by the same suspect who tagged the State House, other buildings, and a car in the same area earlier this winter.
