Authorities are looking into who scrawled anti-police graffiti on an Interstate 95 retaining wall in Boynton Beach.

Two separate messages were found by police officers Friday while they were on patrol in the 1000 block of Southwest Fourthth Street, north of Woolbright Road.

Surveillance-camera video was found at a residence near where the graffiti was uncovered and is being reviewed, police said.

The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office’s graffiti eradication unit painted over the graffiti on Saturday, police spokeswoman Stephanie Slater said.

The graffiti was on the backside of the retaining wall and not visible to drivers on I-95, but it could be seen by residents, Slater said.

The person who painted the graffiti could face a felony criminal mischief charge if arrested. The charge is punishable by up to five years in prison.
