In the world of graffiti, the “tag” is the signature.

Lettering that can be found affixed in all the cities of France.

Sometimes too many and not just on the walls of disused factories.

In Uzès, in the Gard, on the morning of September 27, more than thirty shopkeepers from the center thus discovered their storefronts engraved or tagged.

Signatures that the gendarmes also found on street furniture.

In total, they identified nearly 145 damage.

After investigation, they made the connection with other degradations committed in the same town in June.

Each time, three signatures returned.

They allowed them to identify two people.

They were taken into custody on Saturday.

These two defendants have acknowledged the facts and will have to explain themselves later in court on this euphoria of tags which could cost them dearly: for the moment, the damage has been estimated by the military at 80,000 euros.
