San Ramon PD on lookout for graffiti culprit

Department releases photos on social media trying to ID suspected vandal

The San Ramon Police Department is on the lookout for a person who is believed to be responsible for spray-painting graffiti at three different spots in San Ramon last weekend, and officers are asking the public to help identify the culprit they believe to be responsible for the crimes.

According to San Ramon police Capt. Cary Goldberg, the graffiti was sprayed over the span of several days, and while officers are not yet ready to release details “pertaining to the exact verbiage of the graffiti,” officers do have photos of the suspects that were captured on an ATM video camera.

“We are currently working on several leads and should hopefully have additional information within the next day or two,” Goldberg told

While police may not be ready to release details relating to the content of the graffiti, the SRPD’s Instagram account did post a comment replying to a user saying: “Some ‘graffiti’ can be very artistic and beautiful, if done in the right place, for the right reasons and obviously with the owner's consent. We can assure you, there was nothing artistic about this graffiti. It was nothing but a purely criminal act.”

Residents with any information about identifying the suspect can call the SRPD dispatch center at 973-2779, or to direct message police via their Facebook account.
