A man with an arrest warrant for vandalism was taken into custody at Concord BART after he vandalized a traffic sign, according to BART Police.

On Thursday just after 4 p.m., a BART police officer witnessed a male vandalizing a traffic sign at the Concord Station.

After the suspect was detained by the officer, a records check of the man showed he had a $10,000 arrest warrant for vandalism.

He was placed under arrest, and booked into the county jail in Martinez.

The man’s identity was not released by BART Police.

I was at the Concord at 4:30pm catching the bus 20 yesterday. I did not see much police car after that

I’m sooo surprised that someone with an arrest warrant out on them for vandalism would be arrested for committing the crime again! Perhaps corporal punishment would be more effective. Or perhaps send them to Saudi Arabia and punish them under that penal code?

There will be no consequences for this, like most things in CA. Libtards think the perp is the victim.

I saw a guy around that time at the concord platform, tagging the trains w/ white spray paint.

I hope they won’t give this poor soul the dreaded stay away letter.

The horror! The horror!

Makes my blood boil that these losers think that their “tagging” is art. This bozo will be out of jail soon enough and back to thinking he is Basquiat or something. Punishment should be removal of all the graffiti in and around Bart for 6 months until his debt to society is paid back. Punishment should fit the crime.

Poor little thing is having an identity crisis because of his early home life and failure to graduate high school. Kind of strange he’s not already on Parole or Probation. Wait a minute did this office not issue the dreaded (drum roll) prohibition order ?

We can only trust when he is released a kindhearted soft on crime democrat politician will be waiting to hand him a participation trophy and shake his hand to help improve his poor self image.

Not even the traffic signs are safe……….sad, very sad.

12 Ugh May 19, 2017 at 11:27 PM

I’m all for the punishment should fit the crime; make him clean and repair BART for six months.

Some people never learn.

I can’t believe Bart cops don’t ride on trains.

Someone might be offended, besides their Union doesn’t want them subjected to cruel an unusually environments.
