San Francisco police catch spray-painting punks red-handed but no arrest made 

These alleged graffiti punks were literally caught red-handed — but still they evaded the law.

San Francisco police responded to a call about vandals spraying on a bus shelter at Mission Street and Silver Avenue just before 4 a.m. on Saturday.

They came upon two possible suspects sitting in the shelter, Ingleside Station police said.

“One of them had red paint on his hands, matching the fresh red paint on the walls of the bus shelter,” police said.

Cops also found fresh red paint on a nearby wall.

But the suspects denied involvement, and the cops couldn’t find any witnesses. They were allowed to go free, police said.
