Man arrested for tagging SB 805 sign near Balboa

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - A man is in custody after he was caught, allegedly, tagging a sign on a pedestrian bridge over Interstate 805 near Balboa.

The 22-year old was spotted by an SDPD officer who called it in a little after midnight.

The suspect tried to run away from the officer, but was caught. The suspect is facing a vandalism charge, plus the cost of the clean-up.

"It's well lit and it causes thousands of dollars in damage to public signs like that. It's not a cheap fix and the subject is looking at fines and penalties,” said Officer John Concepcion.

Police believe the suspect may be responsible for a number of "tagging" crimes in the area.

A man and a woman were also in a getaway car nearby. They both got away.
