Santa Rosa police arrested a suspected graffiti tagger on vandalism and marijuana cultivation charges on Tuesday, a police sergeant said.

Ariel Suarez-Godinez, 19, is believed to be responsible for at least 62 acts of vandalism in Santa Rosa over the past eight months, Sgt. Phil Brazis said.

Suarez-Godinez, who allegedly used "DABR" as a graffiti tag name, was arrested at a Roseland home where police found a concentrated cannabis manufacturing lab, Brazis said.

Police found two firearms and more than 100 pounds of marijuana at the residence and also arrested Francisco Jose Baltazar, 21, of Santa Rosa, on suspicion of illegally manufacturing concentrated cannabis and possession of marijuana for sale, according to Brazis.

Suarez-Godinez was booked into Sonoma County Jail for felony vandalism, illegally manufacturing concentrated cannabis and possession for sale of marijuana, Brazis said.

He is scheduled to be arraigned Wednesday afternoon in Sonoma County Superior Court.
