A graffiti artist who authorities had been trying to track down for two years has described the moment that he was caught as putting "his mind at ease."
Arrested for causing criminal damage, the graffiti artist had racked up tens of thousands of pounds of damage to Durham's historic centre.
It took two years, two judges, the Home Office and FBI to finally track down and arrest the culprit, after PC Kay Howarth found photos of his graffiti on the web.
