Graffiti suspect chased and arrested

A graffiti suspect was arrested after a foot chase at Richmond overnight.

A nearby resident called police after hearing noises on a roof and smelling paint just before 12.30am on Friday 2 October on Richmond Road, Richmond.

Patrols arrived within minutes and found fresh graffiti had been sprayed on the wall of a business.

A suspect ran from the scene and was chased by police before being apprehended a short distance away.

The 22-year-old Marleston man was arrested and charged with being unlawfully on premises, mark graffiti, property damage and carry graffiti implements after police found nine spray cans in his backpack.

He will be bailed to appear in the Port Adelaide Magistrates Court at a later date.
