HARRIS COUNTY -

Authorities are asking for help as they try to locate the people responsible for vandalizing a space shuttle replica at Space Center Houston.

The Harris County Harris County Precinct 8 Constable’s Office was notified about the vandalism on Wednesday, November 27, 2013.

Space Center Houston officials told deputies that sometime between 11 p.m. on November 26 and 9 a.m. on November 27, someone got onto the property and spray painted vulgar and racial messages on the right side of the mock shuttle.

Authorities said the vandalism on the shuttle included an upside down “teddy bear” with the words “DEZ NUTS,” along with “sorry drugs made me do it.”

The constable’s office said several unidentified males were seen on Space Center Houston's property around 5:30 a.m. on the day the graffiti was found, however, it is unclear if any of them are responsible for the vandalism. Two members of the group were on skateboards.

Authorities said they have few leads at this time, so they are asking anyone with information to contact Sgt. Chris Yetter at 281-488-4040.
