A Northern Westchester man is facing charges for allegedly tagging a Dutchess County business, police said.
Officers from the City of Beacon Police Department responded to the area of Madam Brett Park on South Avenue at approximately 8 a.m. on Monday, June 1, where there was a report of a suspicious vehicle.
Beacon Police Det. Sgt. Jason Johnson said that arriving officers found Buchanan resident Daniel Vines-Mevic in a building owned by Scenic Beacon Development that is currently fenced off to the public with “no trespassing” signs visibly posted.
Johnson said that at the time of his arrest, Vines-Mevic was found to be in possession of multiple spray-paint cans that he had been using to tag the building.
Vines-Mevic, 25, was taken into custody without incident and charged with:
- Criminal mischief;
- Making graffiti;
- Possession of graffiti instruments;
- Criminal trespass;
- Unlawful possession of marijuana.
Following his arrest, Vines-Mevic was released and scheduled to return to Beacon City Court later this year.
