Three of the four persons of interest seen on surveillance footage were charged with misdemeanor vandalism.
Update #2 — August 20, 2015; 8:09 AM
Thanks to tips from the public, the taggers have been located. From Richmond Police Public Affairs Director Gene Lepley:
Acting on a tip received as a result of the publicity about this incident, 4th Precinct Environmental Officer Robert Capocelli has located all four individuals seen on surveillance video in Scott’s Addition.
After interviewing all four people, he has charged three of them, each, with a misdemeanor charge of vandalism/destruction of property.
They were each given a non-custodial summons – a misdemeanor since the damage was less than $1,000 – which means there are no booking photos and no names will be released.
All of those charged confessed to the tagging, expressed remorse, and agreed to make restitution.
The person NOT charged, but seen on video, was the blonde male with the high-and-tight haircut.
Officer Capocelli will contact the business owners who offered the reward to coordinate the payout to the winning tipster.
