The Tucson Police Department has arrested a suspect for the unpleasant vandalism that temporarily disfigured the historic Fox Theatre last year

In the evening of April, 26, 2015, someone thought it was a good idea to graffiti the Fox's front doors. Photos of the incident began emerging the next morning.

It ended up costing $3,000 to clean up, according to TPD.

Earlier this month, two officers with TPD got tips on a possible suspect. They then corroborated the information with other agents in a graffiti investigation unit who were after a person responsible for other graffiti crimes throughout the city and Pima County—a total of $1,600 in damages, TPD says in its Facebook age.

On Feb. 4, 21-year-old Xavier Chavez was apprehended and booked into the Pima County jail on a class 5 felony charge of criminal damage, according to TPD's Facebook.
