The good people on the Internet helped San Francisco police track down the dude who they say vandalized the hell out of a Muni bus during the World Series celebration on Sunday night.
A photographer snapped this photo of the ballsy vandal and the Chronicle printed the picture, asking for help finding the guy. The photo also went viral on Facebook and other social media sites, and an online campaign started to find the bus-smasher.
And it worked.

Police were pleased to announce last night that they arrested
22-year-old Gregory Tyler Graniss on suspicion of felony vandalism and
injuring or destroying a passenger transit vehicle.
Investigators say they got enough evidence
related to the crime, which led them to the identity of the suspect. Graniss, a San Francisco resident, was arrested Tuesday at 7 p.m.; however, police wouldn't say what "evidence" was found at the crime scene since this is still an ongoing investigation.
was a senseless act of destruction and there is no tolerance for such
criminal behavior in San Francisco," says Police Chief Greg Suhr. "With
assistance from the public, investigators moved swiftly to identify
this suspect and make an arrest."
Anyone with information on the
vandalism of the Muni bus is asked to call the Special Investigations
Division at 553-1133, the anonymous tip line at 575-4444, or
text- a-tip to TIP411 and begin the message with SFPD.
Now if only we could find the idiot who torched a Muni bus that same night.
