French Quarter Graffiti Trio Wanted After Tagging Madame John's Legacy, 9 Other Spots (VIDEO)


Police are looking for a trio of taggers who spread their spray all over the French Quarter recently. The same grafitti tag found in ten locations around the Vieux Carre. Surveillance video taken Sunday traced the tag to three people, who police are trying to identify.

 

The video, taken about 5:35 a.m. at 602 Dumaine St., shows one of the trio spraying the swirling tag onto the side of the building.

 

The same tag was also found on the facade Madame John's Legacy, the three-building complex at 632 Dumaine St. that was designated as a national historic landmark. The complex, which escaped damage in the great fire of 1795, is held up as an prime living example of 18th century architectural design.

Three tags were also found at a house at 508 Dumaine. Additionally, the tag was found at 624 Dumaine, 634 Dumaine, 518 Dumaine, a building on the 900 block of Royal and 1032 Royal.

 

Louisiana has a specific law against defacing historic buildings, which at least Madame John's Legacy would likely fall under, if not other buildings that were tagged. The charge carries a maximum of two years in prison, and a fine of up to $1,000.

 

 

Police urge anyone with information about the case to contact NOPD's 8th District at 658-6080.
