Reward upped to bust graffiti vandals

The reward has increased from $250 to $2,500 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of whoever vandalized a freeway sign at Highway 101 at Bayshore and Third streets two weekends ago.

The City’s Department of Public Works typically offers $250 for help busting graffiti vandals, but has upped the reward as an extra incentive to prevent continued graffiti at the site.

The vandalism occurred at the southbound 101 off-ramp during the early morning hours of Sunday, Oct. 18, DPW said in a release.

“The graffiti damaged sign has been cleaned up at taxpayer expense,” DPW said in a release.

The City spends more than $20 million annually cleaning up graffiti, according to estimates.

Public Works crews photographed the graffiti and uploaded the photos into the Police Department’s new tracking software, DPW said. http://www.sfexaminer.com/local/Graffiti-vandals-meet-your-new-foe-63830002.html

“We are doing everything we can to help arrest and prosecute the people responsible for this crime,” said Mohammed Nuru, Deputy Director of Operations and the Department of Public Works.
