YAKIMA, Wash. -- A 17 year old male was arrested Tuesday after he was caught on camera spray-painting graffiti on a building.

Last Friday, police went to check on their "FlashCam" in the area of N. 6th Avenue and W. D Street for activity. A photograph was taken the day before of the alleged suspect in the act.

An officer had recognized the suspect in the photo from previous arrests. The suspect will be charged with malicious mischief.

Police credit the graffiti cameras for helping to reduce vandalism. About 15 graffiti cameras have been placed in various spots across Yakima.
