Graffiti suspects booked into juvenile hall

A Truckee Police Department investigation into several graffiti reports has resulted in the arrest of three Truckee juveniles who have been booked into juvenile hall.

On July 22, police received several reports of spray-painted graffiti found on random signs near downtown Truckee and on a car near Brockway Road, said Sgt. Robert Womack.

With the help of witnesses, three juveniles were subsequently located and interviewed, with all admitting to the felony vandalism crime, Womack said.

The juveniles ranged in age from 14 to 16 years old, all were Truckee residents and all three have been arrested and booked into juvenile hall, he said.

None of the graffiti appears to be gang-related and no gang ties have been identified, he said.

Property owners believe the cost to refurbish the vandalized property is in excess of $2,000, Womack said.
