(August 20, 2013) New Orleans Police detectives are requesting the public’s assistance in locating and identifying suspects who spray painted buildings in the 1400 block of North Broad Street. The incident occurred on Sunday evening.
On Sunday, August 18, 2013 at about 10:15PM, the suspects captured in the video surveillance spray painted several businesses in the area. The suspects spray painted the words “Tag” and “Meech.” Detectives believe these are the suspects’ names. The suspects were all observed carrying skateboards in their hands. Our detectives do NOT believe these incidents are gang related.
The suspects are described as two white males and one African American male in their late 20’s and carrying skateboards.
