Maynard Police Investigating Series of Anti-Police Graffiti Messages Found in Town

MAYNARD — Chief Mark W. Dubois reports that the Maynard Police Department is investigating a series of threatening graffiti images found throughout town overnight.

Sometime between 11 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 17 and 6 a.m. on Friday, Aug. 18, three anti-police messages were spray painted in town.

One, located at CVS on Main Street, read “Down to Die.” Another, left behind The Paper Store on Nason Street, said “Kill Pigs,” and the third, “Kill Cops Now,” was left at the Mill and Main complex on Main Street.

“These are extremely disturbing messages that we are taking very seriously,” Chief Dubois said. “This is no simple prank. It’s a threat not only to this department, but to the community as a whole. We will investigate and hold the person or persons involved responsible to the fullest extent of the law.”

Anyone with information on this incident is asked to contact Maynard Detective Daniel Bodwell at 978-897-1011 ext. 1029.
