San Francisco police arrested a third man
who they say is also responsible for vandalizing a Muni bus before it was set on fire during as San Francisco celebrated the Giants World Series win last month.
On Friday, police took 24-year-old Adam Diaz
into custody and charged him with two felony counts of vandalism and destroying a passenger transit vehicle. He was booked into San Francisco County Jail.
On Oct. 29 about 12:30 a.m., vandals smashed the windows of an 8X-Bayshore Express before setting fire to it at Market and Third streets. A freelance photographer snapped photos of at least one of the suspects which was later printed in the Chronicle
and circulated on Facebook. With the help of the public, police tracked down two of the suspects; last week they arrested 19-year-old Nicholas Hudson
, a Daly City resident, and about two weeks ago, they charged Gregory Graniss with felony vandalism.
According to police, the photos show Diaz, who was wearing all dark
clothing and a baseball cap, use a skateboard to break windows
on the side of the bus. An additional suspect is seen in one of the photos using a barricade breaking the front windshield of the Muni
bus. This suspect is a black male in his 20s wearing a red shirt with gray horizontal stripes. You can see photos of the unidentified suspect here
Police credit the public with publicizing the images and helping to track down all three suspects. So thanks for that.
