SANTEE (CNS) - A former student of an East County secondary school was arrested Thursday for allegedly covering the campus with vulgar, racist and homophobic graffiti, causing several thousand dollars worth of damage.
Staff members arriving for work Thursday morning at West Hills High discovered the red and white spray-painted slogans and symbols, including a swastika, according to sheriff's Sgt. Craig Johnson.
"The vandalism and damage was extensive and spread throughout the entire campus, and delayed the start of school," Johnson said.
The suspect, whose name was withheld because he is a minor, was taken into custody.
