Valentine's Bandit strikes again in Portland

PORTLAND (WGME) -- It wouldn't be February 14th in Portland without a visit from the Valentine Bandit, and the bandit didn't disappoint this year.

No one knows just who the bandit is, but every Valentine's Day the hearts appear overnight all over the downtown area.

There have been lots of rumors since 1976 as to who the individual or group responsible is, but whoever spends the night and early morning taping Valentine's all over the city, people now look forward to it each year.

It has been a tradition for more than 35 years in Portland.
