Starting in early August, Lincoln City Police had been receiving graffiti complaints from various properties around the city. Luckily, multiple businesses submitted video surveillance of the suspect. On August 13, 2020, Lincoln City Police completed the investigation and made an arrest.
Gerardo Cervantes-Naranjo (21) of Lincoln City was linked to and arrested on five separate graffiti cases where markings similar to the word “arome” was done.
Cervantes-Naranjo was arrested and lodged at the Lincoln City Police Department on charges of Criminal Mischief in the Second Degree (4 counts) and Criminal Mischief in the First Degree (1 count).
Due to Lincoln County Jail COVID-19 Jail Procedures, Cervantes-Naranjo was later issued criminal citations/summons to appear for Criminal Mischief. See our previous media release on Facebook for more information on criminal citations/summons.
