Juveniles arrested for vandalism in Buford involving racist language

The Gwinnett County Police Department says 2 juveniles have been arrested for vandalism in Buford. 

Shortly after midnight on June 4, two individuals were captured on surveillance cameras walking on East Main St. They approached a dumpster at East Main and South Harris streets and spray-painted racist language and hate speech on the doors of the dumpster and on its right side, where it could be seen by morning traffic. 

The vandals also spray-painted a nearby street sign and a business at 50 East Main St. They eventually left in the direction of the train tracks behind the dumpster.

One person was described by police as a heavy-set male, wearing yellow shorts with squares on them, black slides, and had a shirt wrapped around his head with a white face covering. 

The other person was tall and skinny, wearing a gray sweatshirt, mask, shorts, and white Crocs with high calf socks.

The suspects were identified with the help of Buford City School Police and Buford City Marshals. The juveniles are being charged with criminal damage in the 2nd degree and criminal trespass. The juveniles are not being identified.
