Recently, a suspect was arrested on suspicion of several felonies, including possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, and vandalism.
According to reports, SCV deputies received a call from the Canyon Country Community Center about someone vandalizing one of their walls with spray paint. When the deputies arrived, they saw two separate vandalized areas and apprehended the suspect shortly after that.
What Is Vandalism?
Vandalism is covered under California Penal Code 594 PC and is described as maliciously damaging, destroying, or defacing another person’s property. The crime is considered a misdemeanor in situations where the value of the damage is less than $400. When the value of the damage is $400 or more, the crime becomes a wobbler that can be charged as either a misdemeanor or a felony.
Vandalism frequently occurs in the form of spray paint or other marks. However, it can be charged in some surprising situations. For example, suppose a husband and wife get into an argument and the wife breaks a lamp that they owned together. Since the lamp was both her and her husband’s property, she could be charged with vandalism for breaking it.
