Paint it black
Police made two arrests earlier this month for graffiti “artists” defacing property in Red Hook and Carroll Gardens.
On June 8, an officer nabbed a 22-year-old man who was allegedly spray-painting a telephone poll on Coffey Street at 1:55 am. The vandal had a can of black paint and a stencil book on the block between Ferris and Conover streets, the officer said.
The previous night, a 56-year-old woman was arrested for allegedly vandalizing the façade of a city-owned building near the corner of Smith and Third streets at 8:30 pm.
Cops busted a knife-wielding hoodlum on Hoyt Street on June 7.
A patrolling officer saw the 20-year-old brandishing an illegal gravity knife near the corner of Butler Street at 1:30 am.
