The University of Texas Police Department has released surveillance images of two people suspected of spraying Texas A&M-themed graffiti on UT property, in hopes that the public may be able to identify the apparently college-aged vandals.
Between midnight and 5 a.m. on Oct. 27, phrases including “Gig ’em,” “SEC,” and “Miss Us Yet?” were tagged on “The West” sculpture, the Jefferson Davis statue, the Woodrow Wilson statue, and more on the UT campus.
The graffiti has since been cleaned—costing about $3,000, according to UTPD—and University police are working in conjunction with Texas A&M’s police department on the investigation.
UTPD Officer Darrell Halstead says that because the tagging occurred at a higher education institution, the crime is classified as a state jail felony—which carries up to a possible 2 years in jail and a hefty fine.
