A brick wall surrounding the store's trash receptacle has been hit with graffiti.
The Walgreens on Piney Orchard Parkway isn't open yet, but vandals have already made their mark. It appears that someone recently spray-painted a brick wall surrounding the store's trash receptacle.

Anyone who places an item on the rails could go to jail for up to ten years.
