PORT ST. LUCIE — A 24-year-old man arrested last week after being linked to graffiti in Fort Pierce was arrested Tuesday in connection with similar incidents in Port St. Lucie, according to Port St. Lucie police.
Timothy Michael Poff of Port St. Lucie was arrested last Thursday on 14 misdemeanor charges related to criminal mischief stemming from incidents in Fort Pierce, and Tuesday he was arrested on 19 warrants related to similar incidents in Port St. Lucie, police reported.
Poff told investigators he was responsible for painting "Malum," which he said he chose because it means "wrong" in Latin. Merriam-webster.com defines Malum as "an offense against right or law."
Meanwhile, police in Port St. Lucie and Fort Pierce have outstanding warrants for Sean Abel, 22, in connection with "SEKE" graffiti painted in each city. Abel has a listed address in Fort Pierce.
Poff said he "enjoyed bombing," or painting graffiti, with Abel.
