Residents of One Accomack County Community Tired of Graffiti

Updated:

WITHAMS, Va.- A growing problem with graffiti has residents of the community of Withams upset. The Accomack County Sheriff's Office says the vandalism started a few months ago and they need the public's help.

Lanna Thornton said she and her husband are building a home and just after finishing the siding, it was vandalized the next day.  She made a sign of her own and posted it in front of her house.  It reads "What did that prove cowards? Nobody cares about your problems." 

Thornton said it helped her vent, adding, "It makes me know that whoever did this know that they are a coward that it's not our problem. They should keep that to themselves and aim it toward the person who caused them wrong."

Most of the spray paint seems to be aimed at a person named "J Lloyd." Though real estate broker Matt Hart from Onley does not care who it is geared toward, he just wants it to stop.  His property on Witham Road was vandalized as well.

"Riding clients around that would potentially buy property in this area, when they see things like this, it takes away from the whole community," Hart said. "It devalues this whole area the whole Eastern Shore and it's just a sad thing to see."

The Sheriff's Office said there is a cash reward for assisting police in finding a suspect. 

Sheriff Todd Godwin said the investigation was slowed down during a recent homicide in Mappsville but his office will continue to search for whoever is responsible.
