EUGENE, Ore. -- A fraternity teamed up with the Eugene Police Department to remove hundreds of graffiti tags in Eugene on Thursday.

The police department's Huckleberry Patrol Team, which is made up entirely of volunteers, worked with students in the Kappa Sigma fraternity to remove the graffiti.

"One of my friends texted me and he said I noticed there was some graffiti on the Central Presbyterian Church and said we should go and get that cleaned up, and I said sounds like a good idea, so I texted Mike (Mills) with the Huckleberry Patrol, and now we're out here today hoping to make the place a little bit better," said Jordon Brewer, Kappa Sigma's Chapter President.

They plan to get back out and do more graffiti removal in the spring.
