QUARTZ HILL – A 12-year-old boy was arrested last week for causing more than $20,000 worth of damages during a New Year’s Day vandalism spree at Joe Walker Middle School in Quartz Hill, authorities said.
The campus was vandalized with “spray paint gang-style graffiti”, according to deputy Miguel T. Ruiz of the Lancaster Sheriff’s Station.
The youngster was identified as the culprit after a two-month investigation by C.O.R.E. Team deputies, Ruiz states.
Deputies located the boy in Bakersfield, where he resided under the monikers “RAZZE LOWK” and “DRUPER,” Ruiz stated.
The boy was arrested on March 7 and transported to Lancaster Station for booking on felony vandalism charges.
His name is being withheld because of his age.
