Vandals spray paint Covington school

Covington turned out to help clean up a Catholic school where vandals spray-painted and daubed graffiti.

Brother Ray Bulliard, president and principal of St. Paul’s School, said the cafeteria, chapel, baseball stadium, Founder’s Circle, main building and religious statues were painted Friday night.

Bulliard said much of the graffiti was anti-Christian, anti-Semitic, pro-satanic and obscene.

Covington police said all the graffiti had been removed by 2 p.m. Saturday with the help of about 60 residents.

Police said spray paint was used in about 40 spots, and other spots were splashed with latex house paint.

Police are asking for calls to them or to Crime Stoppers from anyone with information that could lead to the vandals’ arrest.
