Spokane Police: Man Arrested For Graffiti

PRESS RELEASE FROM THE SPOKANE VALLEY POLICE DEPT: On June 10, 2013, at 9:20 p.m., Spokane Valley Sheriff's Deputy Jeffry Rogers responded to the area of Barker Road and the Centennial Trail on a report of two males spray painting graffiti under the bridge. 

Deputy Rogers saw 29-year-old Craig Link walking from under the bridge towards the trail. Deputy Rogers told Link and another male he was with to stop so he could speak with them about the reported graffiti.

Link admitted to Deputy Rogers that he was spray painting over inappropriate pictures under the bridge and that his associate had no involvement.

While speaking with Link, Deputy Rogers could smell aerosol paint on Link. He also saw Link had spray paint on his fingers and on the front of his sweatshirt.  Link told Deputy Rogers he was not affiliated with any type of gang and was only trying to cover inappropriate pictures on the bridge wall.

Deputy Rogers placed Link under arrest for Malicious Mischief. During a search of Link, Deputy Rogers located four different spray tips in his back pocket. Link admitted there were additional spray cans near where they were sitting.  Deputy Rogers located two additional spray cans inside a bag on the ground.  Link told Deputy Rogers he took full responsibility for the graffiti and would come back at a later time and paint gray paint over his artwork.

  • Link was cited and released for Malicious Mischief 3rd Degree.
