Graffiti has been a major nuisance in downtown Huntington, and police got a big break in fighting the problem over the weekend.

Early Sunday morning, the manager of the Galleria found a man and a woman inside the area formerly known as the Huntington Arcarde.
The complex is between the Keith Albee and the St. James Building on 4th Avenue.

Jon Eric Linville and Jennifer Elyse Sneed have been charged with breaking and entering, and police say the pair had a set of keys to the Galleria doors.

Police say Linville and Sneed had a backpack full of spray paint cans, and according to the report, it was enought paint to cause thousands
of dollars worth of damage from graffiti.

Police say they found a digital camera in the backpack with several images of other graffiti in Huntington.
