|SUSPECT: Robert Saddik (Pictured Below)||AGE: 29 Years (Male)|

The San Jose Police Department's Graffiti Enforcement Unit has arrested a suspect wanted in connection with multiple counts of graffiti throughout the City of San Jose. The investigation, which had been on-going for several weeks, identified Robert Saddik as the suspect. Officers obtained a $50,000 dollar Ramey Warrant for the suspect. On 6/1/2012, Officers from the Graffiti Enforcement Unit and the Special Operations METRO Unit served a search warrant at the suspect's residence in the 300 block of Costa Mesa Drive in San Jose. Officers arrested the suspect pursuant to the warrant and booked him into jail for felony vandalism. The suspect is believed responsible for over $30,000 dollars worth of graffiti damage in and around San Jose.
The suspect is best known for his signature graffiti piece, which consists of a cat that resembles the cartoon character "Felix the Cat." Though there is no known connection between the suspect's cat and the cartoon character, the graffiti cat can be seen spray painted in prominent locations (with a large portion of the damage occurring on local freeways) throughout San Jose.
