Graffiti Investigators, from the Oxnard Police Department’s Violent Crimes Unit, conducted a two month investigation regarding an increase in graffiti vandalism by a particular graffiti vandal.

On 9/23/10 at approximately 1330 hours, the Ventura County Sheriff’s Department contacted our investigators and informed them that they had arrested Melendez for additional graffiti vandalism charges.

Oxnard Police Department Graffiti Investigators responded to the Camarillo Police Department and interviewed Melendez. Based on Melendez’ statements to investigators he was arrested for fifteen counts of felony graffiti vandalism and forty seven counts of misdemeanor graffiti vandalism committed in the City of Oxnard.

The City of Oxnard spends over a million dollars a year to clean up graffiti in the city. We encourage the community to continue to report graffiti vandalism, by calling the police.
