Suspect charged with Warren vandalism

Posted: Updated:

WARREN, Ohio - A Miami, Florida man has been charged in connection with acts of vandalism in Warren, including damage done to the artwork at Grohl Alley.

An arrest warrant was issued on Friday in municipal court for 35-year-old  Kurtis Aguilera on charges of vandalism and criminal damaging.

According to court records, the felony vandalism charge stems from an incident this past weekend, when someone spray painted sculptures and paintings designed to honor musician and Warren native son, Dave Grohl.

The charge come less than five days after police distributed surveillance video of someone defacing the alley.

 Aguilera also faces a misdemeanor charge of criminal damaging, which Warren Police Lt. Jeff Cole says was filed because investigators believe Aguilera is responsible for "tagging" all over the city.

The U.S. Department of Justice defines "tagging" as a type of graffiti.

Lt. Cole tells 21 News that he hopes that Aguilera, who has not been arrested, is still in the area.
