Muni hero helps cops bust vandal

Muni vandalism is where this man draws the line.

After witnessing a female suspect spraying graffiti on a Muni shelter early in the morning last week, a citizen took the time to lead police to the vandal, according to police.

The man was reportedly driving along Mission Street near Russia Avenue at about 3:20 a.m. on April 29 when he saw a female suspect vandalizing the bus shelter.

“The witness immediately called the police and decided to follow the suspect as she walked northbound on Mission from Russia Avenue,” police at Ingleside Station said.

When officers arrived, the witness pointed out the suspect, who was cited for vandalism after being found in possession of two spray cans, markers, latex gloves and spray can tips, police said.
