Five CU students were issued summonses by the CU Police Department after being accused of vandalizing property with spray paint on and around Norlin Quad.
According to a CUPD news release, at 3 a.m. on Friday, two CUPD officers stopped five students for crossing the corner of Broadway and Pleasant Street against the red pedestrian traffic signal. One of the students placed cardboard stencils and a can of black spray paint on the sidewalk as officers approached. Another told officers in an interview that the group had spray-painted messages around Norlin Quad.
The students, Audrey Campbell, 21; Travis Fischer, 21; Melissa Sandor, 20; Sara Salakari, 19; and Jacob Rice, 19, were all issued summonses for Graffiti Prohibited under Boulder’s municipal code.
Facilities management crews were sent to clean up the graffiti around the quad. A total of 42 messages were found on and around sidewalks on the quad, which referenced “strikes” on “5/1/12 MAYDAY.”
The students may face by up to 90 days in county jail and a $1,000 fine for the municipal offenses.
