    Yesterday morning I was woken up by my roomie, he tells me "yo Kev, some cops are here and want to talk to you." I open my front door and am greeted by two female cops. They smile and say "you know why we're here, youre under arrest for criminal mischief". I say "fuck" and tell them I want to throw on some pants cause i know how cold it is in county. Im told they need to follow me to my room (they didnt handcuff me). I start getting dressed and they ask me if they can take the stuff they want or if i want to wait around for them to get a search warrent. I tell them just snag whatever and lets get this dealt with. They took my paint, anything else graff related including books/mags and even a pair of my fucking shoes because they had paint on them. Halfway through the search they find my $400 bong and other glass. I literally begged them not to take it and told them I would make them breakfast if they left it. They laughed and told me they wouldnt take it cause they knew I would just go buy another one. Anyways, the two cops informed me that theyre the graff task force and theyve been after me for quite some time. Hell, they even gave me props on getting up so much and told me they "like my work". The cops were pretty chill and never cuffed me except for when I rode in the car (they said they were only doing it because it's policy).

    They brought me to an interviewing room and showed me a very large binder with my moniker and two other friends' on the cover. These fuckers had so many pics of graff it was insane. I asked if I could get copies and they denied. They asked me questions about how long I've wrote, how I do certain things, etc. They started getting aggro when they couldnt talk me into giving anyone up and ended up adding ann additional felony because of it I think. To make a long story short, they let me walk back home with 3 crim misch felonies and two graff related violations. I was told they would ask the DA to give me the same deal a previous writer got, plead guilty to one felony and drop the rest. Some jail and a bunch of fines, 3-4 years of probation. Can you move out of state when you're currently on probation for a felony? Anyways, fuck legal drama and sorry for this exhaustive rant. Stay safe you fucks.

    At least they weren't dicks and threw you around. Good luck. hahah I like that you said 'you'd make them breakfast'

    I don't think you can move out of state when on probation, but I am not a legal beagle.

    Yeah, true, but if they did come back with a warrant, they have probably already scanned around the room to see what was there, so they would notice if anything were missing. Better jsut to get it done, especially if the cops are being chill.

    you can move out of state depending on the leniency that the judge allows, but, i will tell you this, mose judges will not.

    on another note, you can probably get a lawyer to bring down something due to the fact that you were cooperating with the officers.

    ON ANOTHER NOTE, IT"S BEEN SAID A MILLION TIMES BEFORE, KEEP YOUR SHIT OUT OF YOUR HOUSE!!, OR IF YOU KEEP IT IN YOUR HOUSE, MAKE SURE YOU GOT A NICE HOLE IN THE WALL WHERE IT CANT BE FOUND, IT MIGHT SEEM LIKE A LARGE STEP TO TAKE BUT THE TRUTH IS YOU CAN AND WILL GET FUCKED, IF YOU SHIT IS FOUND.

    TYPING IN CAPS LOCK MEANS IM SERIOUS NIGGAS, OH YEA>

    i'm thinking it would be better to stick with the misdemeanors instead of the felony.. you have an attorney right


    also, did i see you in Medford or somewhere around there about a month ago?

    maybe he spoke a bit too much in a drunken stupor before beating some new kid in town down who knew where he lived??? its possible, but then there might be additional charges as well..

    good luck with that.
