Police seek man who vandalized Black Lives Matter artwork

Police are seeking a white male driving a damaged blue Cadillac who vandalized the Black Lives Matter display at the FAR Center for Contemporary Arts for a second time early Monday morning.

Police responded to the 200 block of S. Rogers Street Monday afternoon after an employee reported the Black Lives Matter display on planters had been vandalized with spray paint, and the suspect was caught on a surveillance camera doing so.

Last week the same artwork in front of the business was vandalized, and a person was caught on camera.

Police said the footage was captured at approximately 4:20 a.m. when a four-door dark blue Cadillac pulled up on 4th Street, a white male exited the vehicle’s driver’s seat, and spray-painted an “O” on the phrase, “Black Lives Matter.”

On the 13 of June, an employee reported vandalism, which happened around the same time of the morning, with the same man exiting the same vehicle, except red, white, and blue spray paint was used to vandalize the planters.

The dark blue Cadillac has extensive body damage. The police have provided images of the suspect.

The Bloomingtonian photographed repaired planters today. Readers are welcome to download the images and post them on their own social media as they wish.
