On August 27, 2017, between 11:45 a.m. and 12:00 p.m., the Oak View Community Center was vandalized by two male suspects.


On August 27, 2017, deputies were dispatched to the Oak View Community Center for a vandalism that occurred between 11:45 a.m. and 12:00 p.m. that day. There were five different areas throughout the property, where graffiti was painted with some variation of, "THC Cheech x Risky SP."


Video surveillance footage showed two Hispanic males vandalized two different walls, a sidewalk area, a portion of the playground and both sides of the handball court with spray paint. One of the males had short black hair, a black t-shirt, blue jeans and black tennis shoes. The other Hispanic male had medium length black hair, a gray t-shirt, gray shorts, high white socks and black tennis shoes. Additionally, they stole the key to a John Deere X300R lawn mower that was parked at the facility.  The damages cost the tax payers $620 to remove and repair.
