In the early morning hours of September 27, a tagger hit about a dozen businesses along Franklin. He was captured on videotape by one of the businesses, which captured images and has circulated them in the neighborhood in the hope of identifying the tagger.
According to Greg Sales, whose building at 2200 E. Franklin Avenue was one of those tagged, clean-up costs his business about $250 per incident. The cost would be even higher, but the building has been treated with a special graffiti protector, which makes clean-up of the brick somewhat easier.
In addition to businesses, the tagger marked bus stop shelters and garbage containers. Businesses along Franklin Avenue have made police reports and are seeking information to identify the tagger.
