Three taggers face felony charges

Evanston police say three juveniles have now been charged with felony criminal defacement of property in connection with graffiti damage to the Evanston Ecology Center last month.

Commander Tom Guenther says investigation by police school resource officers and juvenile detectives connected the trio to a series of incidents around town in which the youths allegedly used the same graffiti tags to mark their work.

Guenther says they used spray paint on the brick of the ecology center that did significant damage to the building.
