MALTBY — A spokesman for the Earth Liberation Front Press Office said he believes graffiti sprayed on a building in south Snohomish County is a warning of further vandalism.
Spokesman Tomas Peterson sent the Associated Press an e-mail late Friday about graffiti found earlier this week sprayed on buildings in an industrial park in Maltby that appears intended for the Master Builder’s Association and Everett’s KRKO-AM 1380 AM radio station.
Peterson said he believes the graffiti to be “a strong warning directed specifically to the Skotdal family and the Master Builder’s Association.” Peterson adds that “if these entities continue to threaten the health and welfare of the planet, it is very likely we will see future actions by the ELF.”
Andy Skotdal is the owner of KRKO.
Snohomish County sheriff’s detectives and the FBI are investigating the graffiti, which could be easily read from nearby Highway 522:
“MBA KRKO/Snotdol Empire. If you continue to risk killing children, mother earth and her creations, all your holdings are targets. Rise up earth children, ever, ever, ever, ever so carefully. They watch everything. The time is now. Authentic ELF? Ask ATF/FBI about restricted water mains. Little water, better burn. ELF.”
