Vandals Spray-Painted Cars in the West Hollywood West Neighborhood

As many as ten cars were spray-painted on Sunday in an unusual act of vandalism in the West Hollywood West neighborhood.

In an email to members, the West Hollywood West Residents Association said “the perpetrators targeted cars on Norwich Drive and Rosewood by using two kinds of spray paint, white for dark-colored cars and black for light-colored. Reports say some of the tags seemed to make homophobic references.”

WHWRA asks that anyone who has captured video footage of any suspicious activity on Sunday morning 1:30 a.m. share it with the West Hollywood Sheriff’s Station, which can be reached by calling (310) 855-8850. Those whose vehicles have been damaged are asked to call Detective Mike Yocum at (310) 855-8850.

The same vandals were just in Calabasas — read on KTLA this AM.

it’s just some bored-ass kids with nothing else to do. I can’t believe this is news.

It’s news because all these acts of vandalism are felonies, the property of at least 10 individuals was damaged and it’s an assault on our community. The same “bored-ass kids” committed the same crimes on the same night in other cities. Yes this is news, it’s bad news.

Do we prosecute acts of vandalism any more in CA?

Yes Frank, it is news because behavior like this causes everyone’s insurance rates to rise. The city already pays for police protection, why not use it.

might help to have a little police presence in the city.

Cars were also tagged on Westbourne Drive. Such a senseless and damaging act of vandalism.

1. There are plenty of “non-rich” people who live on those streets. 2. That really doesn’t matter because no one deserves to have their property vandalized. Why does it matter if someone is rich or not?

Here we go! Jealousy of those who work hard and manage their money well.

Maybe “wehohello” was the one who did the tagging.

My earlier comment about wehohello were censored (I questioned his character using colorful language). He sounds like a real winner.

Most rich people don’t work hard. They inherit their money. (Trump is a great example)

Crime has a very unusual trend of creating MORE CRIME in a community.
Unusual, but statistically proven, unrelated crimes, more serious crimes. All in addition to further car vandalism as reported here.

I’m surprised in this day and age, no security camera (home, apartment, business) didn’t catch anyone on such a large spree of property damage.
