A woman was arrested Monday in connection with the latest act of green paint vandalism on a Washington DC landmark over the last several days.

Earlier Monday, green paint was splattered in the lower level of the Bethlehem Chapel in the Washington National Cathedral; the Children’s Chapel at the Cathedral was also said to have been vandalized.

In another incident that occurred July 26th, the Joseph Henry Statue across from the Smithsonian Castle was also found vandalized, according to wusa9.com.

By mid-afternoon Monday, police had arrested a woman in connection with one of those incidents.

From the Associated Press:

D.C. police say a woman has been arrested at the Washington National Cathedral in connection with vandalism there.

Assistant Chief Peter Newsham said the woman was arrested in the area of the cathedral Monday after green paint was found splattered there.

He said the woman would likely face charges of destruction of property.

Police could not yet confirm if the vandalism at the cathedral is connected to the Joseph Henry Statue incident.

Police also could not say at this time if the latest incidents are connected with Friday’s vandalism at the Lincoln Memorial, in which green paint was splattered at the base of the statue and the area surrounding it.
