An early morning vandalism call resulted in a trio of arrests on Sunday.

Riverbank Police Services Deputies were dispatched to the 6400 block of Oakdale Road in Riverbank about 1:45 a.m. on Sunday, Feb. 8, for a vandalism investigation. During the investigation deputies found tagging to Galaxy Theaters, Cool Hand Luke’s, Prime Shine Car Wash, Aspen Gym, Auto Zone, MTI and Wooden Barriers. The tagging to Cool Hand Luke’s were letters approximately 10 feet high and the tagging on the businesses appeared to be a tagging moniker.

An alert citizen reported the suspect’s actions and followed them to the area of the 2100 block of Candlewood Place. Deputies made contact at the home and found the three 17-year-old juveniles who were cited and released to their parents for vandalism.

Authorities noted that this investigation and arrests show how important it is for deputies to work with the community in stopping these acts of vandalism to the community.
