A group of ten suspects were taken into custody and one juvenile was cited following a call made to police for alleged vandalism. As ABC7 reports, an anonymous neighbor called police early Sunday morning when he noticed the group spray-painting graffiti on Brainwash, a popular laundromat, restaurant, and bar on Folsom.

The suspects had allegedly just finished an outline on a garage door on nearby Langton St when police arrived at around 3:15am.

As the anonymous neighbor tells ABC7, tagging is commonplace at Brainwash. “It’s like every other week there’s something new up there and they’re constantly having to clean it.”

According to SFPD, some of the suspects had been previously arrested for vandalism and all will be charged with felony vandalism and conspiracy. Police uncovered 52 cans of spray paint, large markers, pens, and stickers denoting their signature inside the group’s backpacks.

    Praise the Lord!
    Somebody has to step up and be the hero that protects garage doors of auto body shops and warehouses from stickers and paint.
    Let’s all work together to create an environment where grafitti doesn’t distract from the endless barrage of advertisements shoved into our faces day and night. In fact, that garage door looks like a great place for a Citibank ad!
