A New Cassel man was arrested for graffiti on March 9 in connection with a previous graffiti arrest in Westbury on Feb. 21.
Police say 18-year-old David Reyes had been seen spray painting a building across from 163 Post Avenue. Officers located Reyes walking near 250 Post Avenue carrying a can of spray paint in his jacket pocket and observed paint on his hands. While conducting an investigation the officers discovered graffiti on two doors of 250 Post Avenue.
The manager of the building reviewed the security camera which showed Reyes spray painting the doors of the building, according to police. As the officers attempted to place Reyes under arrest he began to struggle with them, twisting his arms and refusing to allow them to place him in handcuffs.
Reyes was charged with criminal mischief, making graffiti, resisting arrest and possession of a graffiti instrument.
On March 9, Reyes was arrested for graffiti stemming from the same incident at 403 Maple Ave. and 193 Post Ave. He is being charged with additional counts of criminal mischief and making graffiti.
