      District investigates 'odd' graffiti at Baldwin

      Quincy school officials and police are investigating what is being called "non-specific threatening graffiti" in a girl's restroom Tuesday at Baldwin Intermediate School

      Quincy school officials and police are investigating what is being called "non-specific threatening graffiti" in a girl's restroom Tuesday at Baldwin Intermediate School.

      The graffiti was found by a school official about 2:15 p.m.

      Superintendent Lonny Lemon said that the school will have increased security measures Wednesday, but didn't say whether students should expect to have their bags searched at the beginning of the school day.

      Lemon would not specify what the graffiti said, but called it both "odd" and "non-threatening."

      Today's incident is one in a number of graffiti and note-related issues the district experienced this spring. Quincy Junior High School experienced several threats and an arrest was made in connection with at least one of those in early April.

      The school resource officer and Lemon are currently at Baldwin investigating the matter.
