    Graffiti was discovered on rocks within the Mauna Kea Ice Age Natural Area Reserve.

A criminal investigation is underway after graffiti was found painted on rocks within the Mauna Kea Ice Age Natural Area Reserve last month.

Department of Land and Natural Resources officials discovered the graffiti mid-morning April 28 along with graffiti painted on various property managed by the UH Office of Mauna Kea Management.

According to DLNR officials, all geological features, including rocks, are protected under the Hawaii Administrative Rules due to their historical nature.

The DLNR’s Division of Conservation and Resources Enforcement is asking the public with any information to contact the DOCARE Hawaii Branch office, (808) 933-3460, or call the DOCARE statewide hotline, 643-DLNR.
