Complex Attacked: Oceanside vandals go on nasty tagging spree

Posted: Updated:

OCEANSIDE (NEWS 8) – An investigation is underway after several cars were vandalized with graffiti in Oceanside, according to police.

More than a dozen vehicles were tagged along with several garage doors at an apartment complex early Monday morning.

An unwelcome surprise for Oceanside resident Daisy Ellis who woke up to discover her husband’s company car vandalized with vulgarities.

Her husband’s company car is one of at least 18 vehicles outside the Mission Hills apartment complex that Oceanside Police said were tagged with brown and white paint – along with some of the community’s garages which were quickly repainted.

The vandal or vandals covered the cars, trucks and SUVs with everything from phallic figures to satanic symbols to crude comments too inappropriate to air on News 8.

Oceanside police said the vandal or vandals did not appear to have a specific target in mind.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Oceanside Police at: 760-435-4861.
