Anti-Trump graffiti spray-painted in Ronkonkoma man's driveway; signs stolen
A hunt is on for the vandals who spray-painted anti-Trump graffiti in front of a Suffolk home and stole several political signs.
John Zeppieri, a longtime resident of Ronkonkoma, says he came home Monday night after a weekend away and found anti-Trump graffiti spray-painted on the street in front of his home.
He says he also had several political signs, a Trump/Pence sign and two others, on his front lawn that are now missing, and blue tape that was removed from the stone in his driveway.
He says the signs have been out for several months on his property, and he's never had any trouble like this before.
Zeppieri pointed out similar graffiti was found in front of another home just down the street. Police say they believe the incidents are connected.
"Everybody has a right to their own opinion. But when you start defacing people's property ... because if my car is damaged, my house is damaged. That's going to be another level and I don't want it to get to that level," says Zeppieri.
Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-220-TIPS.
