Marquez faces new graffiti charges

Marty Bachman


BLYTHE - Blythe police arrested Julian Marquez, 20, of Blythe, on charges of misdemeanor vandalism and resisting arrest after finding evidence of graffiti on a wall and on Marquez. He was cited to appear in the Blythe Court and released.

Marquez made headlines in June of 2010 when he was arrested and charged with felony vandalism after he was spotted by a school employee tagging a trash dumpster and wall in the parking lot of Palo Verde High School. Marquez was found guilty of misdemeanor property damage under $400 and having a previous conviction in that case, sentenced to 96 days in jail, three years probation and 250 hours of community service. Marquez was also ordered to pay restitution and was not allowed to possess spray paint, markers and other graffiti implements.

At the time police officials said Marquez was well known by them and the school officials to be "a habitual graffiti vandal."

Police said they believed he had been responsible in the past for several thousand dollars damage in the city of Blythe.

On Dec. 30 at about 1:38 a.m., a Blythe police officer was on patrol in the 200 block of N. Lovekin when he found fresh graffiti on the wall near the northwest side of the apartment complex. At the same time the officer saw a person, later identified as Marquez, run east toward the rear of the complex.

A patrol sergeant was in the area of the 200 block of N. Palm where Marquez fled and found him in the apartment complex to the rear of the initial scene. Despite orders to stop, Marquez ran and a foot pursuit followed until the sergeant was able to catch up and take him into custody. Once cuffed, Marquez was noted to have the same color paint on his body and clothing as was seen in the fresh graffiti.

Anyone with information regarding this case is urged to contact the Blythe Police Department at 922-6111 or they can give their information anonymously by calling Crime Stop at 921-CARE (2273) or by email at blythepd@cityofblythe.ca.gov.

When he gets out jail tell him to hit up ya boy Jay-Z here at Def Jam Records. We can make him a star with his outstanding vocal talent. Gotta hurry though. The new Kids Bop CD can't wait to long for him.

This brings to mind the graffiti that is continuing to be displayed on the fence by Wal-Mart. It is obviously the same person. Time for cameras to catch this person, prosecute and make them scrub off his "art" with a toothbrush. (deleted)

(deleted) No normal person would keep doing the same stupid thing over and over again. Send him to work off the damages with a county warden on a road crew and he will shape up after some hard labor maybe. Looks like his family is (deleted)
