3 Ventura vandals arrested for park graffiti


At about 12:30 p.m. Thursday, a witness at Thille Park alerted authorities after seeing three suspects using permanent markers to tag city-owned trash cans and an electrical box inside the park area.

Responding officers spotted three teens matching the witness' description several blocks away from the park on Telephone Road. Upon investigation, authorities determined the three were involved in the vandalism. The three, two 19-year-olds and a 15-year-old, were also positively identified by the witness.

The two 19-year-olds, Joe Osuna and Daniel Chavez of Ventura, were arrested and booked into Ventura County Jail for vandalism. The juvenile was cited for vandalism and released to a parent.
