CATS and CMPD Recognized Today for Graffiti Arrests

News Story from News 14

A little over a month ago, thanks to the joint efforts of dilligent CATS employees, Allied Barton and CMPD, we were able to arrest three of the most prolific graffiti taggers in Charlotte.

Graffiti taggers have caused tens of thousands of dollars worth of damage in South End alone to small businesses and on city property and these three individuals are responsible for a significant amount of these damages.

Today at 2pm at the Bland Street Light Rail Station we will host a news conference to recognize the efforts of CATS and CMPD to arrest these individuals.

In coordination with Crime Stoppers, South End had a $500 Graffiti Reward in place for information leading to the arrest of a graffiti tagger. CATS has asked if we would present this reward to a South End nonprofit and we will recognize the Charlotte Community Culinary School.

The Media Advisory is below and I hope you will join us at 2pm today at the Bland St Station to thank these individuals for their success. In the event of inclement weather, we will host inside the Trolley Musuem.  If you have any questions, pleast let me know. Ted Boyd, tboyd@charlottecentercity.org.
