The Arlington police department is asking for the public’s help locating 17-year-old Trevor Zane Collinsworth, a suspect linked to the graffiti recently spray-painted in neon orange and black around several homes, a church and a school in Arlington.
The letters VTF followed by x3 were sprayed on garage doors, fences, vehicles, utility boxes and nearby Wood Elementary School off Interstate 20 near Park Springs, Green Oaks Boulevard and South Bowen Road.
Police said the graffiti was not gang-related.
A church in the 3400 block of West I-20 also was painted in early July, according to a news release from the Arlington Police Department.

The White Settlement Police Department also reported three cases of VTF graffiti along homes and a water tower around the same time the Arlington homes were tagged. The department has since worked with Arlington police, but White Settlement police were not available immediately to comment.
Arlington detectives said Collinsworth has ties to both Arlington and White Settlement.
The charges would be two state jail felonies.
Collinsworth is described as white, 5 feet 8 inches tall, weighing 140 pounds with brown hair and blue eyes. His nickname is “Diesel” and he could be anywhere in Tarrant County, a police report states.
Police say he could face more charges including damage to property along Park Springs Boulevard.
Arlington police did not immediately return phone calls or email messages seeking comment.
