    "Second Graffitti Suspect Arrested"

    Discussion started by KaBar2 - Oct 3, 2003

    Houston Chronicle 10/03/03

    A Magnolia man arrested Thursday is a member of a graffiti ring believed to have vandalized about 30 highway signs throughout Houston, causing about $100,000 damage, police said.

    An off-duty Houston officer said he saw Keith Hayes, 21, and another man using spray paint to deface an exit sign on Texas 288 on Sept. 18, and he noted their vehicle's license plate number.

    Police said they traced the number to Dayton resident Adam Berry, 23, who was arrested Sept. 25. Evidence gathered at his home led to the arrest of Hayes, police said.

    Berry and Hayes were charged with felony graffiti, police said. Each posted bail. Officers are looking for a third person.

    graffiti ring?

    how fucking close to the sign did they park?

    felony graffiti? ouch.

    I feel so much safer now that this horrible criminal element has been removed from the streets of Houston. :rolleyes:

    ... he noted thier license plate number?

    first off- what are they doing parking right next to where they are painting.

    second- why did he only note the number instead of pulling over and arresting them on the spot.

    They say that "fortune favors the bold," and no doubt audacity wins battles. But stupidity doesn't. These guys apparently got a little too comfortable and apparently don't believe in the "be sneaky when you are breaking the law" model. Read, and heed their errors.

    be sneaky while upholding the law!

    If I was a cop I'd wait in hiding untill they were almost done,
    then pop out with my gun draw and force them to write 'jail bitch'
    over their freshly finished pieces. Then bust them and leave the
    dissed pieces to run.

    good thing I'm not a sadistic cop.

    :five-o:

    If the city of Houston really paid $100,000 for 30 highway signs, they've got much bigger problems than graffiti.

    they always over estimate..

    but they are also taking into account the labor that goes into cleaning the signs.. the cost of the chemicals to clean the signs.. the gas to drive the car from canada to houston to clean the sign.. etc.

    that last line was my favorite....and most likely true...

    i feel sorry for those guys...how could they not spot a cop watching them, though? was he in the woods inspecting his confiscations of illegal substances?
