Police say a vandal,or vandals struck homes in the Shadeland area on three straight Wednesday nights in May, and then again in January.  William Tozer woke up one morning, and found his home looking covered in graffiti.

"Very disheartening, very unsettling to see that much damage done.  Thank goodness we had insurance," said William Tozer, Lexington. 

Tozer's insurance paid $15,000 to clean up the mess. 

"Took better part of a week," said Tozer.

The police say they don't know why a suspect, or suspects attacked this area, or the specific homes, but they have one clue.  Police say they found the initials EBG tagged on one of the houses.

"We don't know if that is the initials of somebody they thought lived there, or the initials of the person that might have been doing the graffiti.  There is no common denominator between the victims other than the fact they live on the same street," said Lexington Detective Mike Sweeney.

Tozer has no idea why somebody wanted to damage his home.

"I hope that they can find out who did this, so it doesn't happen to anyone else," said Tozer.

"Hoping somebody will see this story, and will lead us to the culprits who did it," said Detective Sweeney. 

The Police offer $1,000 cash for information leading to an arrest in this case. 

The police say 4 homes near Palomar were recently spray painted with graffiti.  The police do not know if the crimes are related, but they say the graffiti looked similar.
