ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Officials at the Albany Convention and Visitors Bureau want to know who spray-painted the side of the building.

The graffiti that was here is gone now. Workers spent Sunday afternoon cleaning up the damage. Officials say it's disappointing that someone would do this.

A busy weekend full of events in Downtown Albany ended with workers getting rid of this red spray paint on the side of the Albany Welcome Center.

" Everything has been removed from the building, so we are all in good shape to welcome our visitors. So there's no sign of it and when our visitors come to town they won't even be able to tell," Rashelle Beasley of the Convention and Visitor's Bureau.

Albany police say a police report wasn't filed in the incident. Beasley believes it happened well into the night after Saturday's Mardi Gras Street Festival. She says it's unclear what exactly was written on the side of the wall.

" It was very faint, so it was very hard to tell what it was,"  Beasley said.

The incident on the historic building in Downtown Albany, comes a little less than a year ago when vandals spray painted the War Monuments in Veterans Park. No arrests were ever made in that case.

"We're always disappointed when something like that happens and it's very important for us to make sure that everyone understands that we don't tolerate this type of behavior," Beasley said.

The city does have surveillance cameras downtown. Beasley says they're still looking into whether the vandals may have been caught on any of those cameras.

They ask anyone who may have seen the incident to contact them with any information.
