Prosecutors said Chisholm, who was staying at a sober house in Lowell, had distinctive markings in his graffiti that helped police track him down.

Chisholm was arraigned in Lowell District Court on Wednesday. He was released on personal recognizance bail on several conditions. He must stay away from all 22 locations he allegedly tagged and follow all rules of the sober house he is staying at.
