Police Use Myspace.com To Bust Graffiti Artists

via – Wooster Collective

CORRECTION – I just watched the video and I wouldn’t consider these fools artists..

Late last week CBS 4 in Boston reported that three taggers were arrested on vandalism charges through myspace.com.

Alex writes: “it doesn’t seem that these guys were trying very hard to conceal themselves i thought you might be interested in how rupert murdoch’s latest acquisition is cooperating with the police on busting street artists. sadly, it’s hardly surprising…. BTW the video is a bit more informative than the article.”

Chris writes:

“A lot of people have Myspace, and I think this could carry over to Flickr as well, which would have major implications on a number of graff artists.”

Here’s the article (You can see the video here):

STOUGHTON Stoughton police say they used the popular teenage website, myspace.com, to help solve a widespread vandalism spree. Three teenagers are currently under arrest and facing charges in the spree which cost an estimated $75,000 in damages.

18-year-old Charles Diggs has been charged with 28 counts of tagging property and 11 counts of malicious damage of more than $250; Eric Tankerly, 17, has been charged with 17 counts of tagging and 11 counts of malicious damage of more than $250; and Raymond Lacasse, 18, has been charged with 14 counts of tagging.

Investigators found the suspects after searching myspace.com, a web site where users often post personal information and photographs. The suspects’ names were not listed on the site but the officers were able to track them down by their tagging signs and by investigating a group called “Graffiti Artists.”

Police say two of the suspects have been forthcoming with information and have contacted some of the victims to arrange for restitution.

    i think this is all bullshit. if u want to stop or slow down the graffiti scene, take the local piece of shit buildings and turn them into legal graffiti sites, charge people to come in with their own paint and do what they want to the wallz

    Fuck legal walls, the writers themselves are to blame for getting caught, if they slipped up why feel sorry for them? Use common sense and take care of yourself, graff is something you share with the community, shit is on a “need to know” basis, and as for people who dont write, they dont need to know you do–Only trust cats you can trust with ya own life, roll like that and you wont ever have to get into shit with the 5..Dont post shit on myspace in other words–If youre out for net fame you shouldnt be writing in the first place, priorities in the wrong direction..

    Peace to HM ATD MYB ISK WND TCI KYT PA crews….Midwest freight heads destroying all lines!
