(TULSA, Okla.) On 01/21/19, the Tulsa Police Department began investigating vandalism crimes reported in the downtown area related to "taggers". The first reported incident occurred at 1446 S. Boston Avenue, the Tulsa Bar Association, where much of the building had letters and words painted on the building. The initial reported damages were estimated to be in excess of $1000 to remove the paint from the brick building. On 02/23/19, six houses were reported to be painted with similar letters and words that were painted on the Bar Association. The estimated cost of the damages to the houses was in excess of $12000 dollars. Officers in the IMPACT squad developed possible suspects and began working on obtaining search warrants for additional evidence to tie the suspects to the crimes. On 04/03/19, 409 N. Main Street, Sound Pony, reported damages after unknown suspects painted on the building. The letters and words painted onto the property were again similar to the Bar Association damages. Officers canvassed the area and located video of the crime being committed. Officers were able to identify both suspects from the video and evidence gained from search warrants served. On 06/10/19, officers located both suspects and made both arrests. Alex Atwood and Jacob Cagle were both arrested on two felony counts of malicious injury to property and one misdemeanor count of malicious injury to property. Additional charges may follow as the investigation is still on-going.
