    Two members of a tagging crew known as the Cali Female Bombers (CFB) have been arrested for more than 800 incidents of graffiti in the North County.

    On Tuesday, San Diego County sheriff’s deputies announced the arrest of 20-year-old Elizabeth Marie Reyes.

    Reyes tags under the alias “DASE” and Vista city officials say their graffiti tracker system has linked her to more than 500 graffiti incidents. They claim she has cost the city more than $154,000 in cleanup costs.

    Reyes was arrested May 2, two days after another member of the Cali Female Bombers was taken into custody.

    Deputies say Ramona Montes, 18, was arrested April 30 for more than 300 incidents of graffiti.

    The arrests are the result of work by deputies and city crews who take photographs of the vandalism and upload them into a web-based service called Graffiti Tracker.

    Reyes will be in court on Friday, May 10th.
