On November 13, 2013, at approximately 4:00 a.m., Reno police officers received a citizen hail of two suspects committing graffiti vandalism downtown.

A citizen observed two suspects spray painting signs, fences and buildings throughout the 900 block of East Second Street. Officers apprehended the suspects after a short foot pursuit.

An investigation revealed that the suspects were responsible for at least 19 cases of destruction of property in the downtown area. Both suspects were arrested and charged with gross misdemeanor destruction of property based on the damage and estimated clean-up costs.
