EAST LANSING, Mich. - Michigan State University police are hoping to track down whoever is stencil painting "WTF MSU" around campus.

The police department posted photos on its Facebook page asking anyone to help identify the people. Police said the people in the photos are not being accused of the vandalism, but may have information on whoever is responsible for it.

Police said painting the rock is OK, but it's the paint on campus sidewalks that is illegal.

Anyone with information is being asked to call MSU campus police at 517-355-2221.

Michigan State spokesman Kent Cassella released this statement:

"MSU officials this week became aware of a campaign called "WTF MSU" that included social media publicity and chalkings/ paintings across campus. Police began an investigation into possible vandalism, as well as into concerns expressed by members of the MSU community about the campaign.

Police on Sept. 27 met with representatives of the student government organization ASMSU, the group behind the marketing campaign, and quickly determined there was no threat to campus safety nor intended vandalism. The campaign revolves around an effort to improve services on campus. ASMSU representatives agreed the organization would cover any clean-up costs."
