Vandalism crime spree hits Prune Hill neighborhood

19 cars, in addition to homes and fences, were spray painted with graffiti

Two people were arrested on Sunday, suspected of vandalizing vehicles, homes, fences, stop signs and mailboxes on Prune Hill with graffiti.

According to Camas Police Department Sgt. David Chaney, Takoda M. Fitzgerald, 18, of Camas, and a 15-year-old juvenile male from east Vancouver were arrested on charges of felony malicious mischief. The pair was identified through information provided by neighborhood residents and local youth.

The damage took place in the early morning hours of Oct. 1, when the suspects allegedly defaced the personal property of 20 different victims. Using black and white paint, they sprayed graffiti throughout the neighborhood. Vulgar words and phallic symbols were among the images found on the exterior of 19 cars, and other locations, Chaney said. One unlocked car was also painted on the interior.

Fitzgerald is scheduled to be in Clark County Superior Court on Tuesday morning for a first appearance hearing. Bail has been set at $20,000. He is currently lodged in the Clark County Jail.
