HARRISONBURG — Investigators with the CHARGE Gang Task Force are investigating what appears to be an overnight graffiti-tagging spree in the Friendly City.

Lt. Chris Rush with the Harrisonburg Police Department said most of the taggings occurred along West Wolfe Street, but investigators are still documenting all the incidents.

Several buildings, including a house and a business, along with a box truck on West Wolfe near Virginia Avenue were tagged with blue spray paint.

Police plan to release more details later today when the number of taggings, and an estimated damage total, are calculated.
