San Diego County sheriff's deputies have arrested a teenager they described as a "prolific tagger" on suspicion of 262 graffiti incidents in the city of Vista that have caused an estimated $113,483 in damage.

It was the latest arrest in the Sheriff's Department's anti-graffiti campaign.

The teenager was arrested Thursday at his home in Oceanside, where evidence was seized, said Deputy Paul Michalke.

He was later released to his parents.
