Vandals drawing moustaches on billboard advertisements is not a new concept, but Moustache Man adds his own flair to his creations.

Turning a subway ride into a scavenger hunt of sorts for New Yorkers, the public doodles have commuters constantly on the lookout for his latest work.

Unfortunately, the infamous Moustache Man was recently caught. 26-year-old Joseph Patrick Waldo has been charged with causing $1,500 in public damages. He issued the following statement: "I'm sorry for my actions and have agreed to fully cooperate and never do it again."
