The Geneva Police Department is asking residents to be vigilant in monitoring their neighborhoods for suspicious or unusual activity after several reports of graffiti in the City last weekend.

Police continue to investigate the vandalism that took place Jan. 13 to 15 after spray-painted symbols and words referencing various gangs were found on properties throughout Geneva. Graffiti was reported at the following locations:

·         Stop sign at Oak and Kane streets;

·         Home’s vinyl siding and garage door in the 100 block of South Harrison Street;

·         Garage door in the 0 to 100 block of Crissey Avenue;

·         Fence in the 0 to 100 block of Kane Street;

·         Wood siding of garage in the 800 block of Center Street;

·         Fence in the 600 block of Richards Street;

·         Fence and sign in the 300 and 400 blocks of East State Street;

·         Stop and street signs at North and Illinois streets; and

·         Brick building in the 600 block of North Street.

“The Geneva Police Department is taking these illegal activities very seriously and understands residents see this as an affront to their community. This type of graffiti will not be tolerated in Geneva,” Police Chief Eric Passarelli said. “People who see vandalism taking place should immediately call 911 and allow police to investigate the incident.”

The City’s online request system, which was utilized by residents last weekend, should only be used to report non-emergency situations since it is not monitored 24 hours a day.

Police have worked diligently with property owners to remove the vandalism as quickly as possible.

Anyone with information regarding last weekend’s incidents should call the Geneva Police Department at 630-232-4736.
