MERIDIAN, Miss. (WTOK) - The graffiti that was on several buildings on 22nd Avenue has been removed. The Meridian Police Department also said it has a lead on who is responsible.

The MPD said it believes one person caused the damage at multiple locations in downtown. Seven buildings had the letters “TCC” spray-painted on windows, walls and signs, including the Threefoot building.

Several cleaning services spent time removing the graffiti Monday and Tuesday. Newscenter 11 also caught up with one of the cleaning crews that donated its services for free.

“We are out here cleaning off the buildings. We are applying some solutions, chemicals and trying to get all this graffiti off the buildings the best way we can. Yes, we are doing this for free. I own Godwin Cleaning Services. We decided to donate our time and efforts to clean up the city,” said owner, Ryan Godwin.

Police said the case is still under investigation.
