Marina police say they used video from a surveillance camera to identify and arrest a man responsible for 14 acts of graffiti vandalism, amounting to more than $400 in damage.Christopher Reign Hernandez, 24, of Marina used green spray paint to tag numerous walls and other objects Sunday night along Reservation Road, Del Monte Boulevard and Carmel, De Forest and Hillcrest avenues, police said.
Lt. Rick Janicki said officers recognized Hernandez as the vandal after looking at video taken by a security camera where some of the graffiti was done.
Hernandez was wearing the same clothes he had on in the video, which were stained with green paint, when officers found him Tuesday and he had drawings of the graffiti done Sunday, Janicki said.
Hernandez was booked at county jail for felony vandalism and probation violations and is being held in lieu of $20,500 bail, according to jail record clerks.
Janicki said officers are reviewing vandalism reports taken taken in past months to determine if Hernandez is responsible for any other damages.
