Since when does the FBI investigate cases of graffiti?

The College Fix reports:

Four separate law enforcement agencies are investigating racist graffiti on public university campus

Multiple law enforcement agencies, including the Federal Bureau of Investigation, are helping a public Maryland university investigate several instances of racist graffiti on its campus, incidents which have occurred over the course of several months beginning in the fall.

Charles Wight, the president of Salisbury University in Maryland, posted on the school’s website on Wednesday that the FBI was “assisting with vandalism investigations” on the Delmarva campus. The school has seen multiple graffiti incidents since October, beginning with at least two racist messages scrawled onto a wall of the campus’s Fulton Hall.

“Since last semester, SU has been working with the FBI’s Baltimore field office, as well as local allied law enforcement agencies, as part of the investigation,” Wight wrote on the school’s website. He noted that university community members “may be contacted by FBI agents or other law enforcement officials, or see them on campus,” and called for “full cooperation in providing any information they may need.”

School won’t say why so much law enforcement is involved

Reached for comment, campus spokesman Jason Rhodes didn’t offer much information about the latest incident, stating that the university was “unable to comment on the specifics of an open investigation.” He confirmed, however, that federal investigators were involved in the case.

“It’s not uncommon for the Salisbury University Police Department to work with allied agencies. In this instance, the SUPD also is working with Maryland State Police, the Wicomico County Sheriff’s Office and the Salisbury Police Department, as well,” he said.
