RANCHO CUCAMONGA: On March 21, 2014 Deputies were called to investigate an extensive vandalism scene in the 8000 block of Cornwall Avenue, which encompasses a condo complex.
The suspects stole three fire extinguishers from their secure mount within the complex, discharged the contents into the community swimming pool and left with the extinguishers in hand. The suspects threw the empty fire extinguishers at the traffic signal lights at Cornwall Avenue and Foothill Road causing an estimated several thousand dollars worth of damage. The suspects continued their vandalism spree with white paint and a paint roller. They broke down the gates for the nearby flood control channel and painted various forms of graffiti in the flood control, tagged a brick wall nearby, and painted up several mailboxes as they walked down Cornwall Avenue.
Upon deputies arrival to the area, they noticed paint spatter on a door mat located on a driveway in the 8100 block of Cornwall Avenue.
The garage door also appeared as though it had fresh paint. The deputies made contact at the residence with suspect Julian Sibree a 21-year-old male from Rancho Cucamonga. Through this contact and subsequent investigation, it was determined Sibree partook in the crime spree. During the investigation, Deputies identified and located Sibree’s accomplice, a 17 year old male also a resident of Rancho Cucamonga.
Evidence linking the suspects to the vandalism was located and seized. Rancho Cucamonga City graffiti removal arrived and estimated the damages to be several thousand dollars. Damage costs to the gated condo community and pool are still pending.
Sibree was booked into West Valley Detention Center on felony vandalism charges. The male juvenile was booked at Central Juvenile Hall for felony vandalism charges as well.
