Boston Police report arresting a Quincy man after they say an officer watched him spray graffiti on two sections of the Grand Junction railroad bridge - and say he's also wanted for defacing the Longfellow Bridge.
Police say an officer on patrol spotted a guy sitting on the bridge - which crosses under the BU Bridge - around 4:30 p.m. yesterday:
The officer continued to observe the male to ensure that he would not fall into the water and to determine if he was a “tagger.” The officer then observed the male begin to spray paint the railroad tracks before walking further down the tracks to spray paint a second section. The suspect then walked off the tracks toward a path next to Storrow Drive. The officer immediately noticed that the suspect had sprayed a tag on the bridge. The officer was aware that the tagger of this symbol was the subject of an investigation by a Boston Police detective for a similar tag on the newly renovated Longfellow Bridge.
Brett Cullen, 22, was charged with two counts of felony tagging, police say.
His arrest comes about a week after BPD detectives nabbed Marc "CIGA" Meadowcroft in East Boston, wanted for tagging up both MBTA and private property in the Boston area.
