Vulgar graffiti is littering street signs in a Green Country community.

It's so bad that the sheriff's office is offering a reward!

"It's ridiculous and very immature," Fort Gibson resident Aubrey Murray said. "I go to work at 8 a.m. and that is not the first thing I want to see first thing in the morning you know?"

For five miles on County Line Road, just about every sign has something on it.

"My son in the backseat he goes, 'what does that say?' 'why is that on the stop sign?' and that's when it hit me," Murray said. "I was like this is terrible. I think it's very disrespectful and the gang signs. I mean how do you explain that? How do you find the right wording to tell a five-year-old or a ten-year-old you know?"

The county commissioner says the vulgarity and graffiti so bad on the back of some of these signs and the street signs stretches for miles. They're also offering a reward to anybody who knows more.

"They need to know we're not putting up with this vandalism," Muskogee County Commissioner Ken Doke said. "We're going to come after them hard and heavy."

Doke says his crews just finished replacing a low water bridge only to have it tagged.

Doke says the damages could run from $5,000 to $10,000.
