SALISBURY, NC (WBTV) -

Two Rowan County men have been arrested after police say they are responsible for a string of vandalism throughout Salisbury.

Police say 23-year-old Robert Corrwin Hamby and 27-year-old Jeremy Wayne McKeithan have tagged a number of businesses and private property over the past couple of month.

Some of the words and initials that were tagged across the city have included, "Pretzel", "Promo", "Juice Box", "Saint", "TLC", "TPS", among others.

According to police, Hamby and McKeithan have recently started a process called "Slap Tagging."  This is when people use adhesive labels, upon which they appeared to use stencils to draw faces and write words.

Police say there have been many cases of this vandalism throughout various areas of the city.

Hamby and McKeithan were identified after a lenghty investigation, police say.

They each face 14 counts of property damage and one count trespassing.

"Our agency is aware that there were more incidents than those charged at this time," police told WBTV. "Therefore, we welcome anyone who may have fallen victim to these vandals to contact the Salisbury Police Department at 704-638-5333."
