In a two week span the Transit Services Bureau Sheriff’s Deputies made five arrests. All of these taggers were known to be vandals on the LA Metro. They were found either actively tagging or in possession of graffiti tools. Tools consisting of slap tags, markers, spray paint cans, and knives/etching tools can frame you for graffiti. Metro is constantly fighting the graffiti found in it’s stations. Arrests such as these not only take these vandals off the street, but send a warning out to others that they can and will be caught.
