RICHMOND HILL — Undercover officers arrested two men Jan. 11 for allegedly spray painting “FEAL” on a J train near the Jamaica Avenue-111th Street station, police said.

Police said they noticed Tommy Martinez, 19, and Jeremy Cautin, 21, sitting on a bench near fresh graffiti.

Martinez attempted to close a knapsack with spray paint cans as officers approached, according to authorities.

Officers said they saw Cautin wearing one green latex glove and noticed a gray spray can sticking out of his left jacket pocket.

Authorities said they determined Cautin acted as a lookout, while Martinez tagged a 10-foot wide, 3 1/2-foot high mark on a train car with black paint.

Both Martinez and Cautin were charged with third-degree criminal mischief, making graffiti, possession of a graffiti instrument and third-degree criminal trespass, the NYPD said
