Someone covered a Plain City high school with profane and sexual graffiti, and there's a reward out for their arrest.

A tagger, or taggers, spray painted graffiti around the outside of Fremont High School, at 1900 N. 4700 West, sometime Monday night. Staffers arrived Tuesday morning to discovery an extensive amount of graffiti that was "profane and sexually oriented in nature," according to a Weber County Sheriff's Office news release.

The alleged profanity covered " a majority of the exterior walls, doors, windows, portable buildings, trees and walkways," according to the release.

Officials expect the clean up and restoration to cost several thousands dollars. Weber School District maintenance crews spent Tuesday and part of Wednesday removing the paint.

"There's no indication [in the graffiti] of who it was," said Weber School District spokesman Nate Taggart. "Nothing that was tagged that gives a feeling, anything, to indicate that it was another school or somebody at the school."

Deputies are reviewing surveillance footage and talking to students to find who did it.

A $1,000 reward, made possible by local businesses, is available for information leading to the suspect or suspects' arrest.

Anyone with suspect information should contact the Weber Consolidated Dispatch Center at 801-629-8221.
