Santa Rosa Teen "DELI" Graffiti Tagger Arrested




    Santa Rosa police have arrested a teen allegedly responsible for vandalizing hundreds of locations in the city during the past 13 months.

    Police have not named the suspect because of his age but said the 17-year-old is a "prolific graffiti tagger" who goes by the name "DELI."

    On Thursday, the Police Department's property crimes investigation team identified the suspect and served a search warrant at his residence.

    Police said the suspect was arrested on suspicion of two counts of felony vandalism and 284 counts of misdemeanor vandalism. He was booked into the Sonoma County Juvenile Justice Center.

    In December 2013, police arrested a 21-year-old serial tagger who went by the name of KOUCH, who they say committed 170 acts of vandalism.
