Graffiti Problem In North Idaho

COEUR d'ALENE, Idaho - A graffiti criminal taunts police and local business owners after tagging multiple businesses.
 
Police say someone tagged three Coeur d' Alene businesses sometime Monday or Sunday night. Lake City Spay and Neuter, Ciscos Furniture and the Kootenai County Building and Grounds office all got hit. The tagger or taggers spray painted the letters "GZ" on each of the buildings.

This is actually the third time the Kootenai County building has been tagged in recent months. The tagger taunted police and workers by also writing on the side of the building, "I've tagged you 3 times and you still have not caught me" which leads police to believe its the same person involved in all the incidents.
 
Police say they investigate tagging crimes very aggressively because typically other crimes follow these types, such as illegal drug activity or burglaries especially if the tagging are gang related. Police say they didn't know if the graffiti was gang related or not.
 
Crime Stoppers is offering a reward with any information leading to the arrest of the person or persons involved in the incidents. You can contact Crime Stoppers at 208-667-2011.

    SPOKANE, Wash. - Initiative-1639 has been the root of controversy ever since supporters began asking for signatures. It became even more complicated when the Washington Supreme Court overturned a Thurston County judges decision after the judge initially threw out over 300,000 signatures saying the petition didn't follow election law claiming it was unreadable.
