CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - Investigators have arrested a 32-year-old man accused of spray painting graffiti on three separate buildings in downtown Charleston.

The Charleston Police Department arrested Ryan Davis Wednesday morning and charged him with 21 counts of malicious injury to real property.

Police say the graffiti tag "RXONE" was found painted on the side of Kudu Coffee on Vanderhorst St., on the Rent Charleston sign on Columbus St., and on a sign for Star Gospel Mission on Meeting St. on the morning of May 1.

The tags combined to cause $350 worth of damage.

Investigators say they were able to determine the "RXONE" tags came from Davis after identical tags were found on his Facebook page.
