Michael Perry, 33, of 309 Bellevue Road, Pittsburgh, was cited by Tamaqua Police in connection with a spray painting incident on Nov. 25.
Tamaqua Police were called to the area of the Tamaqua Public Library on South Railroad Street, at 7:43 a.m., after two men were seen spray painting a wall behind the library. When officers arrived, the men fled northwest, toward Hunter Street.
One of the men, Perry, was tackled as he ran by a woman who lives in the area and saw the officers giving chase. The other male jumped over a wall on to Cherry Street and was able to get away.
