Homeless man accused of Pasadena vandalism spree

A 33-year-old transient is accused of smashing business window and damaging decorative planters and a newspaper rack during an early-morning vandalism spree Sunday, police said.
George Lee Randall, a homeless man known to stay in Pasadena, was booked on suspicion of felony vandalism in connection with the crimes, which were first reported just before 3 a.m. in the 500 and 600 blocks of East Colorado Boulevard, Pasadena police Lt. Jason Clawson said.
A witness flagged down a police officer to report seeing Randall smashing the front windows out of businesses, the lieutenant said. Officers later discovered he had also damaged decorative planters and a newspaper rack in the same area.
Officers found Randall, who matched the description given by the witness, a short time later at Lake Avenue and Corson Street, Clawson said. He was arrested after being identified as the alleged vandal.
A motive was unclear.
According to county booking records, Randall was being held in lieu of $20,000 bail pending his initial court appearance.
