Florida Confederate Memorial Park Vandalized With Paint, Police Say

Police are searching for a suspect(s) who splashed red paint around a Confederate memorial park in Florida.

Hillsborough County sheriff's officials say that a passer-by called 911 after seeing that paint had been tossed on and around memorial columns located on a private property near Tampa. Derogatory comments were also scrawled in the paint. 

Other Confederate memorials in the area have been targeted as well. 

Hillsborough County commissioners voted on July 19 to remove a different monument from county property  after several heated meetings filled with public discussion.

On Wednesday, the commission is scheduled to discuss the monument again with an update on the relocation.
