'TRUMP' graffiti stenciled on road surfaces in Plum
“TRUMP” was found stenciled with spray paint Monday morning on the surface of Old Leechburg and Unity Center roads near St. John the Baptist Church in Plum, according to police.
Plum police said they were notified of the graffiti, which apparently referred to Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, by a media member.
They said another spray-painted, stenciled “TRUMP” was seen near the Sunoco station by the Pennsylvania Turnpike bridge.
Police said they were aware of no such graffiti on homes or buildings in Plum.
Steve Schlauch, Plum Republican Committee chairman and Plum School Board member, said no one ever discussed writing on roads at any GOP committee meeting.
He said he hadn't seen the graffiti but called it odd, adding, “I don't know why anybody would do that.”
