Graffiti on the Ritchie Highway Shopping Center threatened police, and Anne Arundel officials weren’t willing to just paint over and move on.
Police say Zachary Shanor, of Baltimore, was responsible for the message, which said, “Killing AAC Cops Coming Soon.” He wrote it on three walls of the shopping center, and police later found another nearby message that said “Kill Cops.” Upon further investigation, police found more messages.
The graf landed him six charges of malicious destruction. Police picked Shanor up on an unrelated shopping charge, but later obtained a confession.
“These kind of threats will not be tolerated in Anne Arundel County,” said Anne Arundel County Executive Steve Schuh. “Our police put their lives on the line to protect our citizens, and we stand with them against this
cowardly attempt at intimidation.”
