Cat Tagger Arrested

Cats next to a faded piece
We all hope that this is not true. This is from today's LA Weekly Blog:

Authorities on Wednesday announced they've taken one of the Los Angeles region's most hardcore criminals off the streets -- a man who surely strikes fear into the eyes of Hells Angels, Crips, Bloods and Girl Scouts alike. That's right, he's the ... kitty cat graffiti artist. (We shiver just thinking about it).

Authorities allege that 33-year-old graphic designer (name removed) used spray cans to put those ferocious felines on freeway structures, bus benches and other buildings, mostly downtown.

(name removed) was arrested at his home int he 200 block of Elm Street in Alhambra Wednesday morning, according to Lt. Erik Ruble of the Sheriff's Department's Transit Services Bureau.

His kitty cats are alleged to have caused $15,000 worth of damage. His bail was set at $60,000.

Another alleged graphic-designer-turned-cat-tagger, Andy Rios, was arrested in April on suspicion of felony vandalism, Ruble said. He's said to have paw'd around with Ordonez.
