VIDEO: Kingsport police looking for serial graffiti artist


Kingsport investigators are asking the public to help identify two suspects responsible for spray painting graffiti on buildings in the downtown area.

The report said the male and female suspect were captured on surveillance video on the evening of June 12 painting in an alley behind Urban Synergy on 247 Broad Street. That incident caused more than $1,000 in damage, upgrading the charge to a felony.

Since that initial case, five other incidents of painting or "tagging" have been found in downtown. The footage shows the female working as a lookout while the male suspect uses the paint.

Anyone with information on these cases can call KPD Criminal Investigations at (423) 229-9429 or Central Dispatch at (423) 246-9111. Anonymous tips can be made by clicking here.
