Baldwin Park teens suspected of vandalizing three schools

BALDWIN PARK — Police arrested two teenagers this week on suspicion of vandalizing three Baldwin Park schools with graffiti, authorities said.
The teens, 14- and 15-year-old boys from Baldwin Park, were booked on suspicion of felony vandalism Wednesday following an investigation, Baldwin Park School Police officials said Thursday in a written statement.
They are suspected of causing about $3,600 worth of damage to Olive Middle School, Jerry D. Holland Middle School and Margaret Heath Elementary School between May 8 and May 9, police said.
The boys allegedly used white spray paint to scribble monikers and tagging crew names on the schools, officials added.
The 14-year-old suspect was on probation and was taken to Los Padrinos Juvenile Hall in Downey, police said. The older boy was released to a parent with a written promise to appear in court.
