Alexandria, VA

An Alexandria Police cruiser was reportedly spray-painted with Black Lives Matter messaging in the West End on the late evening of June 23 or early morning of June 24.

No suspects have been found, according to police spokesman Lt. Courtney Ballantine.

The cruiser was parked overnight at an apartment complex on Sanger Avenue near Beauregard Street. It was not damaged in any other way, Ballantine said.

“The officer woke up to find it covered with graffiti,” Ballantine said. “This is the first kind of incident of its kind I’ve heard about in the city.”

A photo of the marked cruiser was not available from police.
