Steamboat Springs, Colo., police say it might have been hard to find the graffiti artist suspected of tagging downtown properties, except it's Halloween. The local paper says police found a similar design on a pumpkin at the graffiti artist's home.

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning, I'm Steve Inskeep.

Might have been hard to find him except its Halloween, the local paper says police found a similar design on a pumpkin at the graffiti artist's home.

It's MORNING EDITION.
