Pair arrested in tagging of Enchanted Rock
Charles Agawereh, 24, and Meredith Baird, 21, arrested Wednesday
SAN MARCOS, Texas – Two San Marcos residents have been arrested and accused of spray-painting the phrase "CA$H TRUCK" on Enchanted Rock last month.
Charles Agawereh, 24, and Meredith Baird, 21, were arrested Wednesday and charged with felony graffiti and drug-related charges.
The phrase was spray-painted on the south face of the granite rock on March 20. A park visitor snapped a picture of two people suspected in the vandalism standing in front of the graffiti.
Authorities credit the spread of the image on news outlets and social media with helping law enforcement officials make an arrest.
Enchanted Rock State Park officials said repairs to the rock could cost thousands. A laser-removal option could be used, but it is pricey.
Authorities said more charges are pending against Agawereh and Baird.
