MT. PLEASANT, MI (WNEM) -

Authorities have arrested one suspect in a string of vandalism in Mt. Pleasant.

PIO Jeff Browne with the Mt. Pleasant Police Department said the investigation began several weeks ago after someone painted graffiti on properties across the city.

Browne said the vandalism began in June where a building and dumpster in the 400 and 500 block of North Mission were tagged with yellow spray-painted graffiti.

Since then, many similar doodles have been found from downtown Mt. Pleasant to Central Michigan University’s campus.

"As a business owner, it's concerning and it's a cost to clean it up or replace or whatever it may be so we really need the community support because someone has to know who is doing it," Browne said. 

Browne said the suspect was identified through surveillance video. The name of the suspect has not been released. 

Anyone with information is asked to call 989-779-9111.
