[July 31, 2010]  POCATELLO, Idaho (AP) -- Merchants in Pocatello's historic section are offering a $500 reward for help in catching a graffiti artist whose "BZR" mark has become as prominent as the signer is elusive.

The so-called "BZR Bandit" has left the letters at the top of some of the highest, hardest-to-reach places on buildings and signs in the southeast Idaho city.

Business owners say they fear glorifying the person by offering a reward but are tired of spending money to paint over the tough-to-reach graffiti.

A reward account has been set up at Key Bank, whose sign is one of the highest points in town and was previously defaced with the BZR initials.
