Vandals strike downtown Lake Charles banks

LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - Multiple banks in downtown Lake Charles were struck by vandals that wrote explicit MLK messages on various signage and ATM machines.

KPLC viewers sent in multiple pictures of vandalized property from the downtown branches of Chase and MidSouth banks.

Various locations around the bank displayed the same explicit message: F*** MLK Jr.

Lt. Kevin Kirkum, Lake Charles police spokesman said the vandalism was never reported to LCPD and after officers were sent out to the Chase location, the messages were removed.
