VENTURA, Calif. (AP) - Authorities say they've arrested a Camarillo man on suspicion of spray-painting swastikas and other hate-crime graffiti at a Jewish preschool and other sites.
The Sheriff's Department says on Friday they arrested Jonathan Samuel Latino on suspicion of felony vandalism and a hate crime. Latino is being held in Ventura County Jail.
Several homes, businesses, vehicles and other properties in Camarillo, including the Gan Camarillo Preschool were vandalized last month. Authorities say the graffiti included swastikas and derogatory racial comments.
A surveillance camera from one business captured video of a suspect, leading investigators to Latino.
