A six-member tagging crew scrawled graffiti early today on an Interstate 15 bridge in Norco and tried photographing their handiwork when sheriff’s deputies arrived to arrest them, a Riverside County sheriff’s spokesman said.
Deputies received a call about 3:30 a.m. about the taggers being seen defacing the freeway overpass at Third Street.
The crew members were about to photograph ”their newly applied graffiti on the bridge” in admiration when deputies arrived, according to sheriff’s Sgt. Bryan Vig.
All six suspects were arrested for suspicion of vandalism and conspiracy.
Taken into custody were 19-year-olds Michael Aguilar, Mario Aguilar, Anthony Paniagua, Carlos Rodriguez and Marco Cuenca, all of Riverside; and 18- year-old Eleazar Trejo, of Corona.
