Three graffiti taggers arrested in Moseley

Three Moseley based graffiti taggers were arrested by West Midlands police just before Christmas – Wednesday 20th December 2007. Further arrests in the coming months are expected.

The three were arrested on evidence collected by local Councillor Martin Mullaney.

Since August 2006 the Moseley and Kings Heath Councillors, local police, British Transport police, local wardens and the Council’s Environmental Crime Squad have been working together to identify all the graffiti taggers operating in Moseley and Kings Heath Ward.

Councillor Mullaney and the local Wardens regularly photograph any graffiti tags in the area and exchange intelligence.

One of the graffiti taggers arrested had tagged from Hall Green to Moseley non-stop for two years and had recently graffiti-ed the entire roofline of Woolworth’s in Kings Heath

Councillor Mullaney has already collected evidence on other graffiti taggers operating in Moseley and Kings Heath and additional arrests are expected in the coming months.

Sgt Steve Radford, based at Woodbridge Road police station organized the arrests.
