Michael Kroetsch: Charged & on the Run for Defacing Obama Mural

Houston police have charged but not yet arrested a 58-year-old man for the latest defacing of the eye-catching series of President Obama murals near the Breakfast Klub.

Court documents show that Michael Dale Kroetsch has been charged with felony criminal mischief in the most recent act of vandalism January 28.

Security-camera footage led to his arrest. Court documents indicate he's faced charges of trespass and forgery since October 2010.

He has not been tracked down. Court documents show he's a white man with brown hair, 5 foot 7 and about 170 pounds. Anyone with info on his whereabouts is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS (8477).

The Obama mural has been hit three times since it went up prior to the 2012 election -- once in February 2011 and again last October.

Reginald C. Adams is the artist; he has worked with Breakfast Klub owner Marcus Davis to restore the murals after each incident.
