LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Lafayette police Lt. Scott Galloway confirmed the Edgelea neighborhood graffiti is an ongoing investigation with new leads
News 18 first brought you the story last week of vandalism in Edgelea neighborhoods happening on two separate nights.
Graffiti tagged cars, homes, streets and fences.
Thursday night, the Edgelea Neighborhood Coalition met to discuss its course of action.
The neighborhood wants to become more social and get to know one another better.
A member of the group says he wants to engage homeowners and residents in more conversation.
He says the conversation needs to include safety and the well-being of the area.
Galloway says they can’t solve crimes without help from the community.
“We don't solve crimes by ourselves,” said Galloway. “The police don't solve crimes by themselves. It takes community members so groups like the Edgelea group tonight or citizens, that's who gives us tips. That's how we solve crimes.”
The anonymous We-Tip hotline is always open to report any crimes.
The number is 800-78-CRIME.
