Amid reports that the NYPD wants graffiti artist Banksy in handcuffs, a new piece has appeared today on Manhattan’s Upper West Side, near West 79th Street & Broadway.
The new piece appears at the same time the media is reporting that Mayor Bloomberg and the NYPD have their eyes set on nabbing the guerrilla artist.
NYPD MAKING A TOP PRIORITY TO ARREST BANKSY AND CHARGE HIM WITH VANDALISM. GOTHAMIST.

However, the reports are contradicting previous reports that Bloomberg merely finds him a nuisance, but has no intention of spending government resources in capturing him for defacement of public property.
