Multiple Locations in Ellenville get Tagged

According to a post on the Ellenville Police Departments Facebook page, the graffiti or tagging incidents took place between Canal Street and Maiden Lane on the night of November 4. While it doesn't specifically state where the incidents occurred, the police department did share photos on their Facebook account which show a garbage can as well as what appears to be a window of a business that were defaced with what looks likes a signature of some sort.

In addition to the pictures of the graffiti, the Ellenville Police also shared a picture of an individual who at the very least can be considered a person of interest in the investigation. The person of interest in the photo appears to be a white male, dressed in all black clothing with a black hat, dark medium length hair, dark facial hair, he also wears glasses and it appears he may have some type of ear piercing in his left ear, potentially a gauge.
