Graffiti group erased by National Police in Madrid

A GROUP of five graffiti artists who called themselves ZVS (Old Foxes) have been arrested by officers of the National Police in Madrid after causing an estimated €200,000 of damage to trains.

Acting as a well organised group, they either broke into areas where the trains were parked overnight or on some occasions boarded trains, activated emergency brakes (which was potentially dangerous to passengers) and then forced doors to the carriages open so that they could paint on the outside of the stalled carriages.

According to the police report, the five individuals who kept videos of their actions were charged with four cases of public disorder and 54 acts of deliberate damage across Spain in areas including Cadiz, Cuenca, Guadalajara, Madrid and Valencia.
