GREENDALE - Police have made an arrest of a tagging suspect that has been allegedly vandalizing buildings and areas throughout Greendale since at least the beginning of the year.
Greendale Police made the arrest last Friday, May 10.
"Since the beginning of the year, Greendale has been experiencing an increase in tagging incidents throughout the Village," said the department. "Police received information from a potential suspect’s mother who observed the graffiti at the Community Center and recognized it to be similar to tagging she had observed in her own house."
The suspect is a juvenile and was released with a future court date. But they said in that time new tagging appeared, and the suspect was arrested a second time.
The total estimated value of the damage to property is $4,000.
