Naples home vandalized with paint and profanities

Published: Updated:

NORTH NAPLES, Fla. Vulgar words and inappropriate images were sprayed painted on a house under construction in North Naples.

“One of my subcontractors came in Saturday morning, discovered the whole house had been sprayed painted inside and vandalized,” said Eric Ramirez, whose small construction company is building the home on 47th Avenue Northeast.

From the walls to the bathroom tub, the house is covered in paint and profanities.

“It’s upsetting, we work very hard to you know, I’m in a small business, family owned, it’s a tragedy because we work so hard to provide for our families,” Ramirez said.

This isn’t the first time the house has been targeted.

“Four weeks ago we got all the dry wall kicked in so we got that fixed and now we are almost ready for final painting and cabinets and we’ve seen this that happened,” he said.

Now, Ramirez is asking for the community’s help to catch whoever vandalized the house. Ramirez posted on Facebook asking for help and is even offering a $500 reward for anyone that has any information.

Ramirez said the damages are going to cost him $1,000 to fix. But for Ramirez, it’s not about the money. He is more upset about the delay for hopeful families looking to move in.
