Encinitas teen arrested in hundreds of graffiti cases

Posted: Updated:

ENCINITAS (CNS) - A 17-year-old Encinitas boy was arrested Tuesday on suspicion of committing hundreds of graffiti crimes.

The suspect, a senior at La Costa Canyon High, was detained and interviewed by detectives before being released into the custody of school officials, sheriff's Sgt. Marcos Ramirez said.

While searching the teen's home this morning, deputies seized evidence "positively identifying" the boy in a total of 241 cases of graffiti vandalism throughout Encinitas, according to Ramirez.

The suspect's name was withheld because he is a minor.
