Graffiti Suspects Linked To Additional Spray Painting

Four men have been arrested and charged with a felony after allegedly spraying graffiti on some of Biloxi's city property.

Nicholas Cook, Travis Crabtree, Hunter Bickham and Lincoln White have allegedly left their marks on the new Avalon development which used to be the old Gulf Towers Apartments and Studio 90.

Officials say the non gang related men have allegedly caused several thousand dollars worth of damage.

Now, they're also being linked to spray painting stop signs and private businesses in Ocean Springs.

Lieutenant Keith Havard with the Ocean Springs Police Department says that their tagging has spread all across the Coast, from Pensacola, Florida, to Slidell, Louisiana.

Biloxi and Ocean Springs investigators worked together for several weeks to find the taggers allegedly responsible for thousands of dollars in damages.

Authorities say the investigation is still ongoing, and more arrests could be made.

The four men have been charged with felony malicious mischief.
