Lawrence police are seeking the public’s help in solving another round of vandalism in Downtown Lawrence.

Surveillance video recorded two suspects police believe to be connected to graffiti found in an alley in the 800 block of Massachusetts Street.

Cameras captured a male suspect spray painting graffiti on a wall about 8 p.m. July 13. A female suspect was filmed in the alley acting as a look-out.

The same cameras caught a group of people vandalizing the alley in May.

Police are asking anyone with information on the incident to contact the Lawrence Police Department at (785) 832-7509.

Tags in this town are weak to begin with.

Tags are weak to begin with. I fixed that for you.

You're so clever...I bet you could come up with some very creative tags.

The ability to and the desire to are far removed from each other. Complete waste of time.

Fat people who commit crimes with spray paint should be publicly humiliated! Whoops guess it's to late.

Will be interesting if these ne'er-do-wells are caught if LJ posts a follow-up. The last time this happened the kids looked well-off and I don't recall a follow-up. Not caught? Someone's kid??? Or did I just miss it?

fat and fatter, a dynamic graffiti out, your cheeseburgers and burrito king burritos could be next.

Hilarious fat comments. The police definitely need to canvas Burrito King, Burger King, (while I'm on a King kick, are Little King's still around?), and any convenience store that sells meat on a stick or Hotzi sandwiches. Has ICP been thru lately? I didn't notice any clown makeup in the still frame, but that could be their cover.

don't forget KFC (double down) and Wendy's (baconator)

I completely overlooked the baconator and double down sandwiches - essentially fast food pornography. Chances are "The tubby bandits" celebrated their tag with a double baconator, followed by desert (double down) and washed it all down with a pint of KFC gravy.

"bad boys, bad boys ... whatcha gonna do? whatcha gonna do when they come for you? bad boys, bad boys." ...

okay amateur lawrence sleuths: what can we deduce from the businesses they painted? I mean, surely we can profile this pair.
all the brain power on these threads ... certainly we can solve this case.

800-block of mass, 8pm, first clue: no corner hot dog guy.
is this hot dog rage?

second clue: Pennie Annie is closed. is this actually fudge rage?

"shout arugula!"

"shout weight loss shakes!"
