The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department went after another batch of their "most wanted taggers" this morning when they "executed search warrants across L.A. County Wednesday for members of a tagging crew that's been targeting city buses, trains and other infrastructure," according to KTLA.The "Big Dogs Crew" is the focus of this morning's operation, in which they have 17 locations to search and five probation compliance cases to check. More numbers to crunch: The LASD say these "Dogs" are " responsible for over 500 counts of felony property damage in Los Angeles County," much of it on property owned by the MTA, to the tune of "tens of thousands of dollars."
