Back in Feb. I asked if the graffiti problem had reached epidemic proportions? It only seemed to get worse in the following months. Great to hear a bit of good news on this front. From MPD:
Fifth District officers assigned to the Summer Increased Community Enforcement Initiative made a graffiti arrest last night! The officers were able to successfully apprehend the suspect with his backpack full of supplies. We now know the identity of a person responsible for the recent out-break in graffiti in PSA 501 and will continue our efforts.
We are investigating if he is responsible for other incidents around the city.
Arrested for Defacing Public Property and Possession of Marijuana was:
Thomas, Peter Jackson DOB: 9/25/75 Occurred at 1545 NJ Ave N.W.
I’m told he is affiliated with the tag “FTP”. Hopefully the other prolific taggers meet a similar fate soon.
