Taggers Strike Again at West Ranch High

Five people were caught tagging at West Ranch High School after a caller turned them in, a sheriff's official said Saturday.

Deputies responded to a call reporting vandalism at the school about 9:30 p.m. Friday, said Lt. Steven Low of the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff's Station.
Four juveniles and one adult were arrested at the scene, Low said. The adult was identified as Christopher Gonzalez, 18, of Stevenson Ranch.
Low said they were caught in the act of vandalism.
Gonzalez was arrested for investigation of felony vandalism. Four minors, whose names were not released, were also taken into custody. Three were later released to their parents, Low said, while one was taken to Sylmar Juvenile Hall.
Sgt. Byron Wainie of the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff's Station said he did not know if the vandalism Friday night was connected with a spray-painting spree last November that caused at least $2,200 damage at West Ranch High, located at 26255 W. Valencia Boulevard in Stevenson Ranch.
In the incident, vandals sprayed obscene remarks across the top of the administration building and tagged nearly every structure on the campus, as well as some sidewalks.
Taunts painted on the buildings indicated the perpetrators may have been rivals from Golden Valley High School, West Ranch's opponent in that November night's scheduled football game.
West Ranch Principal Bob Vincent said his school had been vandalized the previous year before a football match with Golden Valley.
