Interview with Rialto PD SCAT Sgt

Three weeks ago rialto Police released a Press Realease on a major sweep they did that targeted tagging crews in the City of Rialto. We wanted to get some first hand knowlwdge from a source close to the investigation so we reached out to Rialto Sgt. Andy Shrouds.

Which crew was responsible?

We do not release the name of the tagging crew because that is exactly what they desire; the publicity. If we were to release the name, then they would gain notoriety and status within the tagging community.

What portions of the city were their tags most widely done?

The vast majority of the tagging has taken place in the central portion of the city. Along Foothill Blvd. between Pepper and Cactus, and north and south from Baseline to Merrill.

What other agencies or resources were uses to make these arrests (school district, local businesses, community)?

We had manpower assistance from the San Bernardino County Probation Department in the form of 8 officers. We also acquired valuable intelligence from  Rialto Unified School District Safety Officers.

Can you speak to recent issues where graffiti was not removed even though it was called in?

I have not personally heard of any instance where graffiti was not removed if it was called in, bet then again, we are not responsible for the removal of graffiti.
