A graffiti artist hit the 8614 Woodmont Ave. Garage sometime before 10 a.m. on Thursday

A parking security guard noticed this in one of Montgomery County’s Woodmont Avenue parking garages this morning.

A supervisor for the security service that patrols the Bethesda Parking Lot District said one his employees saw the markings, on the inside of the 2nd floor stairwell at the 8614 Woodmont Ave. Garage, a little before 10 a.m.

He said it’s not uncommon for graffiti or car break-ins to pick up when the weather gets warmer. Police were called to the scene this morning. Looks like a fresh coat of orange paint is in order.
