SANTA ROSA (CBS SF) — Santa Rosa police have arrested a 17-year-old boy on suspicion of committing more than 70 acts of graffiti vandalism in Santa Rosa over the past year.
Police identified the tagger “GON” and arrested him at a residence south of Santa Rosa today, Sgt. Phil Brazis said. The teen’s name is not being released because he is a juvenile.
