A lot of artists don’t like people to see their work before it’s complete. But real-time video cameras didn’t seem to deter three graffitists who brazenly tagged a Northwood mini-market on Aug. 5.

Detectives hope someone will recognize the culprits from the video and reveal their identities.

The vandalism occurred on Aug. 5 at about 4 a.m. at Los Amigos Market, 1034 Foulkrod St. Three unidentified men were filmed using spray paint to tag the exterior wall. One of the men painted “RMD” on the building, while another posed for a selfie beside his scrawling. The three suspects fled in an unknown direction.
