Even A Blind Squirrel Gets A Nut Now and Then

Post by AZLOT69 » Dec 11 2010 11:45 am

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Las Vegas police say they've arrested a 17-year-old gang member accused of spray-painting graffiti over prehistoric etchings at Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area in Nevada.

The teen wasn't identified because of his age. Police say he faces a felony charge of placing gang graffiti.

Police say the teenager permanently defaced federally protected Native American art scraped and ground into the rocks up to 1,000 years ago.

The graffiti was reported Dec. 2. It features the words "Red Rock 2010" and "Nevada has cronic" sprawled in maroon paint across several rock formations.

The teen was being held at Clark County Juvenile Hall.

I think the real issue here is if Nevada does in fact have "chronic"?
Nothing more enjoyable than a good hike out of town.

I must be old......... had to look up 'chronic' in an urban dictionary. I'm from the 60's generation but this is a new one on me.

Vandals deface rock art with graffiti near Cordes Junction

http://www.azfamily.com/news/Vandals-us ... 14059.html

CORDES JUNCTION, Ariz. – Authorities are offering a $2,500 reward for information leading to the arrest of those responsible for defacing prehistoric rock art.

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is offering the reward for any information leading to the arrest and conviction of the suspect or suspects.

BLM said several panels of petroglyphs within the Agua Fria National Monument were recently defaced with graffiti depicting a series of faces that look like jack-o'-lanterns as well as obscenities.

The rocks are in a remote area of the national monument east of Cordes Junction off of EZ Ranch Road.

Police believe the vandals were in the location at least two times between July and November.

Damaging prehistoric rock art is a federal crime that carries a $100,000 fine and a year behind bars.

Anyone with information on these crimes is asked to call 602-417-9316.
