Offensive words spray-painted on homes, vehicles throughout Hutto

Williamson County

HUTTO, Texas (KXAN) — People helped each other clean up significant damage Tuesday in Hutto after vandals targeted their cars and homes. 

On Monday, Hutto police took 11 reports from people who discovered offensive messages — including homophobic and racial slurs — written in black spraypaint. 

The targeted homes are spread out among four neighborhoods, according to a city spokesperson. 

Chase Garcia lives on Camellia Drive in the Creek Bend neighborhood. He woke up Monday morning and found the word “Die” written on his windshield.

He worked Tuesday to try and wash off other disturbing words spray-painted on the car hood and both sides of his car. 

“I just hope they catch whoever did it, and I really hope they understand everybody works hard for something,” Garcia said. “People worked hard for their homes. People worked hard for their cars, and eventually karma’s going to get everyone back for what they did to somebody else.”

Police said they have two potential suspects right now, but there have been no arrests. 

Several local companies have offered to help paint over the graffiti on people’s garages and clean their vehicles for free.
