2:39am       Unit blk Alpha    Vandalism
Officer Apodaca and Officer Gabriel responded to a report of a prowler. Officers Hom and Hermosa also assisted in the scene. The victim woke up to the sound of a car alarm going off and went downstairs to check on what was happening. The victim looked outside and saw the suspect standing in front of the door. He recognized the suspect standing in front of the door as one of son’s friends. The suspect told the victim he was trying to get his son’s attention by smashing the front windshield of his car. Apparently, the son told the suspect to come over and pick up some things. After attempting to contact him by his phone and knocking on the door, he forced his way into the residence. He broke the front gate and tried to open the door. When that didn’t work, he thought he could get his attention by triggering the car alarm. He used a nearby wooden plank to smash the front window. However, the car he vandalized wasn’t his friend’s, but someone else’s.  The suspect was transported to Ingleside Station for further investigation. He was cited for two counts of vandalism, given a court date, and then released. Report number 120618064

The victim contacted the company and they sent a representative. The representative escorted the victim to another property nearby. The other property was not next to the beach nor was the interior or exterior similar to the property originally advertised. The new property was dilapidated and had bed bugs, which forced the victim to rent a hotel room for $500 dollars per night.
