Suffolk County Police have arrested a West Islip man they say is responsible for several instances of graffiti at numerous locations in Suffolk County, including the Nicolls Road Long Island Rail Road trestle.

Jeffrey Bohman, 21, was charged with two counts of third-degree criminal mischief, seven counts of making graffiti, possession of a graffiti instrument and possession of marijuana.

Bohman was arrested Wednesday at 10:45 a.m. after he allegedly spray painted the wall of a hardware store in West Islip. The arrest was part of an ongoing investigation conducted by First and Third Precinct Crime Section officers.

Bohman was held overnight and is set to be arraigned Thursday at First District Court in Central Islip.

Individuals who deface property are a blight to the community and should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. They should be forced to pay for all damages and cledan up costs and if they are a minor, their parents should be required to do so. It makes me mad to see spray painting on buildings, sign etc.

Okay, well first of all, if you do not know how to spell simple words l do not believe you should be allowed to make comments on this page. Second of all, half of those tags behind the West Islip stores have been there for the past ten years, so all of which cannot be blamed on one individual. Furthermore, for all of the housewives that have nothing better to do than sit here and write remarks about troubled young adults whom you have no knowledge of, you may just want to put this energy into your own children, who are probably out roaming the streets doing much more destructive acts than painting on walls. Quite frankly, I do not believe Jeffrey's parents are going to argue about him being an artist, which in reality he truly is, but I am sure no one on here has seen his artwork from college, highschool, or intermediate schools for that matter. So before you all continue the petty remarks you are making, make sure your own households are intact, and that your 14 year old isn't running the streets smoking marijuana or sniffing cocaine like all the kids I went to school with IN WEST ISLIP. Let's focus instead on what goes on inside the halls of those schools, because more than likely it IS your child who is smoking weed in the stairwells and sniffing drugs off the back of the toilet lids.

Also, I am so glad to hear that everyone is so eager to put this kid in jail for a year at your own expense. I find that incredibly amusing.

Morgan -- do you feel that 'tagging' or defacing someone else's property is acceptable and should not be punished? If this were your house, fence, car, etc., would you not want the 'artist' held responsible and accountable for his/her actions?

I'd like to see this person pay the full cost of cleaning and do community service. I wouldn't sent him to jail.
