ARREST MADE – Chadron Police request public help with graffiti crimes

The Chadron Police Department is seeking assistance in solving several graffiti crimes occurring after September 1, 2011.  Police have investigated at least 6 "taggings" by which persons spray paint objects, vehicles or buildings.  The items which have been painted have been that of gang style tags.  Photographs have been attached along with this post.  Our hope is that someone may recognize the writing, just like a signature and put a name to that handwriting.  Anyone having knowledge of those involved in committing these crimes may call the Chadron Police Department or Dawes County Crime Stoppers and remain anonymous and eligible for a cash reward.  Cash rewards have been paid out in the past for crimes successfully solved.  Sgt. J. Wallage

The Chadron Police Department and Dawes County Sheriffs cooperatively investigated and arrested Darrin Little Whiteman age 19 of Colorado for all the incidents of graffiti.  He is pending court and being housed at the Dawes County Jail.
