NAPLES, Fla. -- Vulgar vandalism is showing up in an east Naples neighborhood. Words and images were spray painted on homes and cars over the weekend. Even though police don't have any suspects, residents said they have a message for those responsible.
Wayne Schutte is a victim of vandalism. His car was spray painted over the weekend. The tasteless graffiti has him asking one question.
"Why are people so stupid?" said Schutte.
Schutte is one of several neighbors that woke up to find vocabulary, so vulgar WINK News can't show you, spray painted on homes through the Park Shore neighborhood. Jeanie Hodges said its out of the ordinary.
"Very uncharacteristic for the family and the kids in our neighborhood," said Hodges.
Garages, cars and walls were all covered in comments that were repulsive to residents.
"It does concern me because this happened so recently and I don't know what to make of it," said Nancy Menaldi, who lives in the neighborhood.
Many of the homes here are owned by snow birds. Neighbors told WINK News that homeowners haven't been seen in weeks. Already some are stepping up and covering up black paint with white, trying to right the wrong.
"Most important thing is to get rid of it and then continue to watch the area to see where things show up," said Menaldi.
As for Schutte, he said "A little elbow grease but it came off his car is clean.. but he has one message for those responsible.
"Get a life. There is no reward for vandalism. Its just stupid," said Schutte.
There are no known suspects or witnesses to the spray painting. Neighbors said they'll be keeping a close eye out. If you have any information, call the Naples Police Department at 239-213-4844.
