New Haven cruiser defaced while supervisor works arson case


NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) — After dealing with a small fire in a vacant Frank Street home, New Haven police say a supervisor emerged to find that his cruiser had been defaced with “anti-police expletives.”

At 2:54 a.m. on Monday, New Haven firefighters and police were called to 138 Frank Street on a report of a fire on the first floor. The home was abandoned and unoccupied, and police say the arsonist must have broken a window to gain entry, and ignited a pile of trash inside.

Next to the window, police found fresh spray paint. The tagger wrote, “(Name) did this,” next to a design.

A New Haven Police Department supervisor’s cruiser was also tagged with anti-police expletives. The windshield was also painted.

While police have not explicitly linked the two tags, detectives are investigating both incidents.
