A suspect was arrested on the city's east side Wednesday in connection with the incomprehensible message that was spray painted on the wall of the main police headquarters building downtown on Sunday, News Radio 1200 WOAI reports.
On Sunday, a message spray painted in bright red declared, "RARIST OF VET FAMILY.' The message, complete with misspellings, was quickly removed from the building by city workers.
This afternoon, acting on a tip, police arrested Bruce Jones, 49, at his home on Morningview, on the east side. A spray paint can was located in the front yard. Police say Jones is also a suspect in an east side spray paint vandalism last week.
Jones is charged with felony criminal mischief.. He didn't explain what the message means.
