Gang member suspected of vandalizing Nipomo farm
August 22, 2014
A known gang member from Santa Maria is suspected of vandalizing a Nipomo farm on Wednesday.
Early in the morning, San Luis Obispo County Sheriff deputies were called to Rancho Laguna Farms to investigate a tagging. At the farm they discovered a truck, trailer and two port-a-potties spray painted with the words “Camarillo” and “Santa Maria” in orange graffiti-style lettering.
The farm supervisor told deputies a vehicle had just picked up the vandal. Deputies stopped the vehicle and questioned the two people inside. Felix Guzman-Camarillo, 21, of Santa Maria then admitted to the vandalism, deputies said.
Deputies arrested Guzman-Camarillo and booked him into the San Luis Obispo County Jail on charges of felony vandalism with a gang enhancement.
