LEAGUE CITY — The Galveston County Sheriff’s Office is investigating who is responsible for tagging the county’s Calder Road annex during the weekend.
Sometime between Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning someone sprayed the phrase “Land of the Free?” on the front of the north county annex, 174 Calder Drive, in League City.
The graffiti artist also painted a happy face on the side of the building. It appears the face is the tagger’s signature.
County Judge Mark Henry discovered the painted messages when he went by the building to catch up on some work following last week’s primary election.
Henry is coming off a narrow 500-vote victory over Michelle Hatmaker. The election turned nasty in the final weeks of the campaign, but it didn’t appear the graffiti was tied to the election.
Henry said the graffiti wasn’t on the building Saturday when he performed a wedding ceremony. County workers were scheduled to remove the graffiti today.
