JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

Police hope surveillance video will help identify who spray-painted a Jonesboro jewelry store.

Steve Pagan reported Wednesday that someone sprayed black paint on the exterior north wall and the back door peephole of his business, Pagan’s Jewelry, 624 Southwest Dr.

According to the incident report, someone spray painted the words “R.O.G. Boys” on the wall.

Pagan did not discover the vandalism until Wednesday, but employees of a nearby business said they saw the paint on Monday morning.

A surveillance camera pointed in the direction of the painted area may have captured the act of criminal mischief, the officer stated.

Pagan said he would look through the video and contact police if he was able to locate any evidence.

In an unrelated case, police cited Travis D. Baker, 26, of Jonesboro, with theft of property after he reportedly admitted to stealing from his employer.

The general manager of Love’s Travel Stop, 5101 E. Parker, reported Wednesday that Baker had been fired for stealing money from the cash register.

According to the initial incident report, Baker admitted in a written statement that he had stolen approximately $250 between April 17 and May 9.

In addition to the citation, the officer criminally banned Baker from the business.
