HENDERSONVILLE, N.C. (AP) - Rangers along the Blue Ridge Parkway in western North Carolina say there’s been an increase in graffiti along the highway.

The Times-News of Hendersonville reported (https://bit.ly/2nCa5I8) says rangers are asking the public for help around the Asheville section of the road.

Supervisory ranger Chuck Hester says he’s seen a marked increase in graffiti over the past six months. Hester says the problem has become so serious it’s hard to determine what graffiti is new.

He says signs, sidewalks, parking areas and even roads are being spray painted.

Hester says the park service does not have a budget specifically to clean graffiti, which is just extra work for maintenance crews.

He says it’s hard to catch the vandals because they move in and out so quickly.
