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.
New Orleans Police on Monday released alleged surveillance camera footage of the suspects, who are pictured above.
The coronavirus pandemic has forced elected officials to shutter “nonessential” businesses, including the vast majority of bars and shops in the French Quarter, which would normally crawling with tourists — and cops — on a Saturday morning.
The vandalism appeared around the same time graffiti art from artist Josh Wingerter popped up along plywood window coverings in other parts of the French Quarter and Frenchmen Street, but aren’t included in the vandalism investigation.
