Police use MySpace account to find teen graffiti suspect

Police in Surprise say a MySpace.com account recently led them to a teen they suspect caused more than $30,000 in graffiti damage to a building under construction.

Police arrested the 16-year-old on Feb. 26 after they found the multistory office building, located in the 15300 block of West Bell Road, covered with graffiti. Some windows were also shattered and a water truck at the site was damaged.

A MySpace profile featuring photos of graffiti that matched the blue, brown, turquoise and hot-pink markings on the building led officers to their suspect, said Sgt. Mark Ortega, a Surprise police spokesman.
