Graffiti Leads to Severe Penalties

Varut Subchareon, 19, is facing felony charges after police caught him spray painting in Roscoe Village. Subchareon then told police of approximately 20 other tags he'd sprayed in the neighborhood, including one on Park District property. Police say the tags arent' gang related but all look exactly the same. He's been charged with criminal damage to state-supported property.
This comes just days after a 24-year-old man was sentenced to two years in prison for vandalizing CTA cars. Nelson Cruz was arrested in December for spray-painting a El car in Forest Park. [Trib, CTA, photo by Chloeloe]
