Two 13-year-olds who police say are “self-proclaimed members of the Artistic Criminals Tagging Crew, or “AC Krew,” were caught tagging spots at Jacobsen Elementary School, Sgt. Tony Sheneman said.
A 16-year-old boy was caught writing his “Kegs” moniker around West High School in pastel inks and permanent markers, police said.
And Daniel McCarthy, 20, was arrested on suspicion of spray painting graffiti on an electrical box next to the California Highway Patrol office at 385 W. Grant Line Road.
The kids were cited and released to the custody of their parents, and McCarthy was cited and released.
Sheneman said the city will prosecute and pursue reimbursement for graffiti, which he said is used to mark territory and indicates “gang-related activity.” Parents of kids can be forced to pay fines.
