 The suspect’s name is not known, but he’s described as an Hispanic male, approximately 18 to 21 years-old, with an unknown type of tattoo on his neck, said Deputy Josh Dubin of the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station.

Each one of the incidents involved the word "KRONZ" being spray painted or written onto walls, buildings and other property resulting in tens of thousands of dollars in damages and cleanup efforts.
