"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.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
