A 21-year-old man was recently arrested on suspicion of vandalizing several Petaluma schools and businesses with graffiti in late June, police announced on Friday. Petaluma resident Jacob Schwedke was arrested for tagging buildings with words like “game bounty” and “kajex” between June 24 and June 28, police said. Schwedke faces 13 counts of vandalism and could be fined several thousand dollars to restore the buildings he allegedly tagged. A police spokesperson wasn’t immediately available to say whether Schwedke remains in jail. Vandalism continues to be a problem in Petaluma, according to police. Graffiti costs citizens and business thousands of dollars to clean up, police said.
