Suspect arrested D.C. vandalism
WASHINGTON, D.C. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A suspect in the recent vandalism in D.C. has been arrested.
Now police are trying to figure out if this person also threw paint on the Lincoln Memorial.
A 58-year old homeless woman was arrested Monday and is set to be charged with destruction of property.
She was found not far from where green paint was found splattered on an organ inside the Washington National Cathedral and on a statue on the National Mall.
Police say a language barrier is hampering their investigation.
Meanwhile, crews are working to remove all the paint.
The Lincoln Memorial is due for a power wash Tuesday.
