After a period of relative quiet, local hooligans are back out there having tagging wars on private property in Echo Park. These childish displays ceased for a two month period in late spring following the arrest and conviction of a CYS member who was busted for spray painting on a neighborhood wall. He was sentenced to 365 days in jail and two years of probation. Gang members you have been put on notice. Neighborhood residents are watching you! If you see anyone tagging, please call the non-emergency police line and report it at 877 275 5273. Take pictures if you can.
If there is graffiti around your house or apartment that you would like to have removed, please call 311 to report it or you can go to: http://anti-graffiti.lacity.org/welcome.cfm?CFID=69&CFTOKEN=94D6302F-5773-4587-8D727E896CB68906 and submit your request over the web.
