    POCATELLO — The police may have collared their bandit.

    The suspected graffiti vandal, dubbed the “BZR Bandit” for “tagging” a prolific number of  buildings in town, often in seemingly acrobatic feats to leave his “BZR” signature at prominent heights, has been identified.

    Ryan P. Hanson, 19, Pocatello, has been issued a summons to appear on two misdemeanor counts of malicious injury to property.

    No word yet on whether the $500 reward by downtown business owners led to the Hanson’s capture.
