KENOVA, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- Kenova Police need your help finding the vandals responsible for extensive damage to the city's murals.
Seven of the city's large murals along Chestnut Street were cut by vandals. City leaders say four of them were damaged so badly that they may have to be replaced. That could add up to $1,000.
The city says money to pay for the repairs would come out of the city's beautification funds.
Kenova City Planner Gordon Jones said it's sad to see a piece of local artwork and history destroyed.
"It's really recounting Kenova's history," Jones said. "It's trying to bring pride into the community. It really gets at your heart when they're vandalized."
For now, officials say they are just taping the murals. Business owners in the area are going to install security cameras to help this from happening in the future.
