"Saul Gud" streets artists: How police tracked them with Facebook

"I was able to view an album titled 'Homies' by 'Ray Jin' on Facebook." That was some of the excellent police work done by the Wheat Ridge Police Department while investigating Corey and Jesse Knapper, the subjects of this week's Westword cover story, "Buzz Kill." The twins and art-school students got caught up in a police sting after their Slang Gang of cartoon characters, which they (illegally) posted around metro Denver, were seen as more than just an art project.

Read more of the Wheat Ridge Police Department's investigation of the twins -- which took the cops to Facebook and the Rocky Mountain College of Art + Design's website -- straight from the Wheat Ridge police reports, on view below.
