HIGHLANDS RANCH, Colo. (CBS4) – Two teens have been arrested in connection with a graffiti case on a bike path in Highlands Ranch.
Sgt. Ron Hanavan with the Douglas County Sheriff’s Department said Jordan Rockwell and Andrew Whattam, both 18, were arrested in connection with the case.
The threatening and disturbing graffiti was near Foothills Park in an area where there is a school, a park, a running path and a dog park.
One message said “Kill Cops” and there were anti-semitic and anti-Christian messages. Some of the graffiti bashed gays and many of the messages were so profane CBS4 couldn’t show them.
“A major factor resulting in information that lead to the arrest of these two suspects was the cooperative relationship between the Douglas County School District and the ThunderRidge High School school resource officer, as well as the DCSO Patrol Division,” Hanavan said in a statement.
The damage was estimated at $5,000.
