Elmhurst Deputy Police Chief Panico Keeping Silver Graffiti Word Secret

A word was spray-painted twice in Elmhurst but the deputy police chief won't say what it was.

A word was spray-painted by a vandal in Elmhurst but the town's deputy police chief is keeping it secret.

The same word was spray-painted in two different places, police said.

One silver word was spray-painted on a fence near the corner of Columbia Avenue and Willow Road overnight Saturday, police said. The other silver word was spotted on the pedestrian underpass at North and Emroy avenues Sunday.

Elmhurst Deputy Police Chief Dominic Panico will not disclose the word or anything else about the vandalism, according to an email sent from the department.

"Per Deputy Chief Panico, the details in grafitti incidents will not be released," the email said.

The word is "Bosco" hence the secret.

This story looks like it was written by my 4th grader.

The deputy chief is on a big big case here and wants to get promoted to deputy "big" chief if he can crack the case of the spray painting juvenile. This sound like something Barnie Five would do from the Andy Griffin show. This is too funny that this would even be written about. Get real people.
