Images circulated on Nextdoor, Facebook and Instagram Sunday morning, showed a large amount of graffiti from Miracle Mile to the Coral Gables War Memorial Youth Center.
The graffiti included homophobic terms, anti-police phrases, “covid is fake” and possible tags by the author.
The city spent nearly $1,000,000 on closed circuit cameras all along Miracle Mile with a live feed to the police department and other key areas throughout the city. There is no word yet on whether the cameras captured the culprit or culprits in action, but Coral Gables Police is following up on leads.
In a statement the Mayor of Coral Gables, Raul Valdes Fauli said, “This is a heinous destruction of property and we will not tolerate the defacement of our buildings.”
“The Coral Gables Police Department is investigating and they have some leads that they are following up at this time,” said Coral Gables Communications Director Martha Pantin.
If you have any information on these incidents on Saturday night, you are asked to call the Coral Gables Police Department at 305-442-1600.
