TEENS ADMIT SCHOOL DAMAGE FIVE CAMPUSES HIT OVER SUMMER.

Byline: Daily News

SAUGUS -- Two 17-year-old boys stopped for being out after Santa Clarita's 10 p.m. curfew admitted to vandalizing five local schools over the summer, a sheriff's detective said Monday.

The Canyon High School students caused some $12,000 in damage at Sierra Vista Junior High and four elementary school campuses: Bouquet Canyon, Canyon Springs in Saugus, and Fairoaks and Mitchell in Canyon Country, sheriff's Detective Pat O'Neill said.

The unidentified teens were arrested about 10:15 p.m. Friday when Deputies Jeff Burrow and Warren Norian spotted them parked in the darkened Wellston Drive cul-de-sac that separates Bouquet Canyon Elementary from Bouquet Canyon Park. One of the youths had a can of spray paint in a front pocket and more paraphernalia used in tagging was found in the car, O'Neill said.

After some questioning, the two admitted they were behind a spate of problems at local schools, O'Neill said.

Tagging crews have hit the Santa Clarita Valley hard in the past year and deputies have been aggressive in tracking down the vandals. The city of Santa Clarita offers $500 rewards for those whose reports of taggers lead to arrests.
