After an attempt to escape and a pursuit by helicopter, the police caught a graffiti sprayer in Upper Bavaria. As the federal police announced on Tuesday, the man sprayed an S-Bahn train in Geltendorf in the Landsberg am Lech district on Monday night.

After a short search with a police helicopter, the 38-year-old was found in a nearby forest and temporarily arrested. He was released again on Monday morning. He is being investigated for property damage. The police estimate the damage at 600 euros.
