Graffiti Spree Ends with Arrest in Fredericksburg, Suspect Held Without Bond

Fredericksburg law enforcement successfully apprehended a man responsible for multiple instances of graffiti vandalism throughout the city. On the morning of March 29th, the local police were alerted to vandalism at the Fredericksburg General District Courthouse. Officer Baugher, the first responder to the scene, observed several tags marking the courthouse and continued to uncover identical graffiti tags at various downtown locations including Sedona Tap House, the Winchester Street parking garage, and on electrical boxes. The spree extended to a clothing donation box and a storage shed along Carl D. Silver Parkway.

Utilizing video surveillance from the courthouse, Officer Baugher captured images of the suspect and disseminated them among the force. The breakthrough came when Officer Funez, recognizing the suspect while working an off-duty detail at a Wegmans store, apprehended Antiona Perrin, a 41-year-old Stafford County resident. Perrin, who was already wanted on an outstanding warrant in another jurisdiction, was taken into custody without incident. He now faces seven counts of vandalism and is being held at the Rappahannock Regional Jail without the option of bond.

This arrest underscores the Fredericksburg Police Department’s dedication to maintaining the city’s aesthetic and historical integrity. The prompt identification and arrest of the suspect highlight the effectiveness of collaborative policing efforts within the community.
