Hughes says he believes "Saker" is responsible for a large amount of graffiti in West Fullerton.
"He is associated with a tagging crew called Lost For Life Krew (LFLK). We have gathered additional suspect information."
This is the third arrest in as many weeks by FPD of suspected taggers who have caused thousands of dollars in damage to public and private property.
FPD asks that if you see any crime being committed, including tagging, to call 911 immediately. You can also report graffiti to the City's 24-hour Graffiti Hotline at (714) 738-3108. You can also email GraffitiH@ci.fullerton.ca.us or enter a graffiti removal request here.
In an email from Captain Dan Hughes late Monday, he said the initiating officers are Detective James Bolden and Sergeant Jeff Stuart. Bolden and Stuart are assigned to Fullerton's gang unit with Bolden also assigned to investigate tagging crimes in West Fullerton.
The suspect whose moniker is "Saker" is a juvenile. That means their name is not going to be released unless they are tried as an adult.
According to Hughes, Detective Bolden was patrolling in the area of Gilbert Park with Sergeant Jeff Stuart.
"They saw the 16 yr old juvenile," says Hughes "at Gilbert Park and were aware of him due to previous graffiti investigations."
Detectives located a graffiti instrument on him and arrested him.
Hughes also said that, since the juvenile was on probation and subject to search and seizure, a search of his residence was conducted and the additional items in the photograph were located.
Detectives believe that LFLK is a Fullerton based tagging crew with about 8 members.
The investigation is ongoing and Captain Hughes declined to comment further saying he didn't want to jeopardize the case.
