“They saw that there was some recent tagging,” Pittsburgh Police Sgt. Christina Davison said. “… They could smell paint in the air.”

Police say the men will face a significant fine, because they tagged public property.

The bureau’s graffiti force is looking to see if the suspects are linked to tagging in other parts of the city.
