FREDERICK, Md. (AP) - Police in Maryland say two suspects vandalized a bust of the Supreme Court justice who wrote the 1857 Dred Scott decision reaffirming slavery.

Officials with the Frederick Police Department released frames Tuesday from a surveillance video showing two suspects approaching the bust of Roger Brooke Taney (TAW-nee) outside City Hall. Police say the suspects were carrying a plastic bag with a paint can inside.

The bust was found Sunday morning covered in a red paint-like substance.
