TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Three men have been arrested in connection with graffiti vandalism in Tucson.
Tucson police say 19-year-old Albert Tadeo Reyes, 19-year-old Pedro Contreras and 20-year-old Hector Salgado all have been booked into the Pima County Jail on suspicion of criminal damage.
Police arrested Reyes on Tuesday near South Park Avenue and Interstate 10.
When he was apprehended, police say Reyes had materials used for graffiti and paint on his clothes and hands.
On Wednesday, police saw two men walking downtown and carrying graffiti paraphernalia and had spray paint on their hands and clothes.
Officers found several locations that had been vandalized in the area of East 12th Street and South Euclid Avenue and were able to attribute the vandalism to Contreras and Salgado by identifying their monikers.
