ST. LOUIS (KPLR) - A billboard meant to thank police had to be taken down after being vandalized with graffiti.

A local law enforcement support group has put up a series of more than 20 billboards across the area. But within the past few days, someone attacked the sign at Arsenal and Gravois with spray paint, changing the message and adding cross hairs over the silhouette of an officer.

After the vandals struck, the owner of the billboard company scraped it off.

“I definitely wanted to get up there and erase the message as quickly as possible,” said Daniel “Boone” Fuller, Adunity Media. “I thought it was egregious and uncalled for and I wanted to get it off of there.”

Fortunately, none of the group's other billboards has been vandalized.
