LOS ANGELES (AP) - Los Angeles County authorities have released a security camera image of a man suspected of defacing a Vietnam War memorial in the Venice area.

City News Service reports Wednesday that a sheriff’s graffiti investigator was able to identify some of the tags left by the vandal in May.

Detectives suspect the man in the image is the tagger who calls himself NONER and is known to police around Los Angeles and San Francisco.

Rewards totaling $30,000 have been offered as the investigation continues.

Extensive graffiti was spotted covering a large portion of the homespun memorial painted on a block-long wall of Pacific Avenue. The memorial lists the names of American service members missing in action or unaccounted for in Southeast Asia. Painted by a Vietnam veteran and dedicated in 1992, it declares, “You are not forgotten.”
