Police say they were seen painting downtown buildings that included a Starbucks and also tagged a marked patrol car. The graffiti included "Occupy Portland" and "Wall Street Loves No One."

Police said the two carried spray paint, stencils and more than 100 "Occupy Portland" fliers.

A 21-year-old man and 17-year-old boy were charged with criminal mischief. The man was jailed and the teen released to his parents.
