Police have cuffed a 56-year-old man who allegedly tagged more than 20 cars with “AOC” and “BLM” graffiti in Jackson Heights two nights in a row.

Officers arrested Heriberto Torres, of 95th Street, for allegedly spray-painting 26 cars parked along 77th Street with the acronyms for U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the Black Lives Matter movement on Tuesday and early Wednesday morning.

Residents along the block awoke each morning to find their cars had been vandalized.

Torres allegedly tagged 13 privately-owned vehicles on 77th Street, a residential street between Northern Boulevard and 31st Avenue, each night, police said.

He is charged with 22 counts of making graffiti, 22 counts of criminal mischief, 22 counts of possession of graffiti instruments and one petit larceny.

The guy they showed doing it a few weeks ago was nowhere near age 56. He was not a minute over 30

Lock’em up and make him pay

Can I please have an address where I can send him a bill for the removal of the graffiti he sprayed on the steps and my entrances to the buildings I manage.

Huh?

What is she gonna say? He’s definitely not a supporter and just simply trying to make it look like a supporter did it. That should be obvious to everyone.
