Contrary to what you may have heard or read, our Police Department is actively investigating this incident. Our community does not condone graffiti of any kind. What has been circulated throughout the media has not only labeled us in a negative tone unfairly but has also given credence to those responsible for the incident... which is most probably what they feed from. Swept under the rug....absolutely not true. Painted over....yes to rid our community of having to look at such a deplorable act.
At 7:16 p.m., Police Chief Tim O'Grady issued this statement:
At about 4p.m. today I was notified by State Police command staff, Governor Cuomo has ordered the New York State Police and the State Division of Human Rights to investigate the Quakenbush field graffiti incident. Officers from the Wellsville Police Department will be meeting with State investigators Monday morning.
