3:30am       400 Blk Munich            Vandalism
Officers Hui and Trujillo responded to investigate a vandalism.  They interviewed a witness who stated that he was awoken by a loud noise in the early morning hours.  The witness looked outside of the window and noticed various males standing out in front of his home.  One of the males was walking along the side of his home with a bicycle which he believed belonged to his roommate.  He then saw one of the males walk up to a vehicle and began breaking off the passenger side mirror.  He then approached another vehicle and tore off the frame of the front license plate.  When he went outside of his home he noticed that his building, as well as various other homes on the block had been spray painted with graffiti.  He did not see anyone damage the homes but believes it might have been the males he had seen vandalize the vehicles.  The witness/victim then noticed damage to his side gate.  The victim told the officers all suspects entered a home on the same block.

The officers responded to the home pointed out by the victim and advised the woman who opened the door why they were there.  She agreed to allow the officers inside to interview the males who had entered the home.  The officers detained two of the males who were inside one of the bedrooms.  The witness was brought to the front of the home where the suspects were detained where the victim positively identified one of them as the one who had been outside of his home vandalizing the vehicles.  The officers then located one of the victims who vehicle had been vandalized who signed a citizen’s arrest against the suspect who had been identified earlier.  The suspect was booked at Ingleside station for the vandalism.  Report Number 110890802   **BEST ARREST OF THE DAY**
