SAGINAW, Mich. — A memorial to Christopher Columbus in front of Saginaw County’s government offices has been vandalized with red paint.

The Saginaw News reports ( ) workers arrived at the Saginaw County Governmental Center on Monday, which is the federal Columbus Day holiday, to find paint splashed on the front of the monument.

Saginaw County sheriff’s Lt. Mike Gomez says investigators will review video surveillance. Investigators believe the memorial was vandalized late Sunday or early Monday because the paint was relatively fresh when workers arrived at the building.

The holiday commemorates the 1492 voyage of Columbus.

The Saginaw Lodge of the Order Sons of Italy placed the memorial in front of the Saginaw County building in September 1991.
