Deputies have arrested 10 suspected members of a Canyon Country tagging crew that caused about $20,000 worth of property damage, authorities said Wednesday.

Seven taggers were arrested Tuesday night after a detective saw them standing next to freshly sprayed graffiti, said Sgt.

Dean Currie of the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station’s COBRA Unit, which investigates all crimes committed by juveniles in the city.

After interviewing the taggers, deputies arrested three more members of the tagging crew Wednesday afternoon, Currie said. All were arrested on suspicion of felony vandalism, he said.

Authorities said they would not disclose the location or type of graffiti because doing so may encourage others to vandalize.
