Two suspects are wanted by New Orleans Police for allegedly vandalizing several Bourbon Street businesses with graffiti on Saturday.

The two are wanted for criminal damage to property, according to NOPD Eighth District officials, whose area of responsibility includes the French Quarter protected historic district.

The suspects were seen on surveillance camera footage tagging several Bourbon Street businesses at about 1 a.m. on Saturday, according to New Orleans Police.

Several tags included the letters “BJF” and “Fos,” New Orleans Police said, adding that a female suspect wrote “Julia” on one of the buildings.
