Mesa PD: 18 vehicles tagged with spray paint overnight

MESA, AZ - Mesa police are investigating after several vehicles were reportedly tagged last night.

Police confirmed that 18 vehicles and homes were tagged overnight near Dobson and Southern Avenue.

Authorities said the tagging occurred between 10 p.m. Sunday evening and 5 a.m. Monday morning. They do not believe the incidents are gang related.

Images emailed into ABC15 showed several vehicles tagged with black, red and green spray paint.

Victim Mark Fraboni woke up to find his white van had been spray painted.

"I was very mad, I was furious," said Fraboni.

Fraboni used nail polish remover to get the spray paint off of his car. When he realized it worked, he went around helping other neighbors.

Another local business, Classic Car Spa, is giving victims free car washes and paint removal.

The case remains under investigation.
