Recognize either of these guys marking up the wall behind A.H. Fisher Diamonds in Red Bank? Or perhaps their handiwork, at right?
If so, and grafitti rankles you, dial up the cops.
The department is on the lookout for two young men they say vandalized the jewelry shop and nearby salon Chelsea Morning early Thursday, and may have been involved in another graffiti act.

Captain Darren McConnell said the two yet-to-be identified men were caught on video, using stencils and spray paint, tagging graffiti on the two businesses’ walls around 4 a.m. The department released still images from the video in hopes of tracking down the pair, believed to be teenagers, McConnell said.
Another incident of vandalism was reported to police the same day in the area of Trinity Episcopal Church on West Front Street, but McConnell said the markings were different from the ones on White Street. The acts may be linked, he said.
About two weeks ago, police busted two teenagers for spray-painting a Broad Street business’s wall, and in recent weeks the department has seen an uptick in vandalism and defacement, police have said.
Anyone with information regarding this incident or others in town are asked to call the police detective bureau at 732.530.2719.
