Can You Identify These Vandals? [UPDATED]



We've see a rash of incidents in which vandals spray paint their tags on houses, fences, and other surfaces. The culprits hit dozens of properties. Luckily, someone caught two of these individuals on tape. Shown here are "Ms. Behave" and "DRIP" or "DROP." Call 202-727-9099 with any information. Here is a series of photos of some of the damage they left behind.

Yes, douchebags. They tagged a garage in our alley last week. I hope someone can identify these people so they get nailed.

The guy has a shopping bag. They are only 2 or 3 blocks from the 7/11 on 8th and MD, and a few more blocks from the 10th and H 7/11. Maybe they came from there and you (anonymous 5:20) can get a better video of their faces from the 7/11? It could be worth a try.

maybe rope justice for these two?

Tagged 2 houses and 3 trees on 8th. At this rate, they'll run into an angry neighbor which will be worse than a cop.

The city sent out someone with a pressure washer to clean up a couple of these spots earlier in this week (apparently you need to contact the city and/or sign a form allowing them to pressure wash your property)... unfortunately, the work they did didn't really do the job and the tags are still quite visible (they sprayed both a concrete wall and a wooden fence - alley north of F street between 5th and 6th St NE). I chose to do it on my own using pure bleach and a scrubber and in 30 minutes got rid of virtually all the damage, cleaned up my wooden fence, and got an upper body workout to boot. Highly recommend the bleach approach vs. the city's half-assed power washing job. Of course, if you've got damage on a painted surface, you might want to seek out a third alternative...
