The 24th precinct announced on Friday that officers had arrested a man for vandalizing structures and even trees in Riverside Park with the word “Done”. The graffiti had been particularly pervasive late last year. One message said “Done With Life.”
We’ve reached out to the precinct commander and will update if we hear more.
Update: Deputy Inspector Naoki Yaguchi, commander of the 24th, informed us that “the individual arrested is a 19-year-old male. He was given a DAT (Desk Appearance Ticket). We were not able to ascertain the meaning behind ‘DONE.’”
While out on patrol, @NYPD24Pct Officers Guillen & Lam👮♂️👮♂️ noticed an individual who was wanted for multiple acts of graffiti vandalism following the phrase, “Done”, throughout the #UpperWestSide. The Officers quickly stopped the individual and an arrest was made. Great work❗️ pic.twitter.com/uxpqC9xw2X
