SLO’s manhunt for watermelon painting vandal

November 7, 2017

San Luis Obispo police are searching for a “vandal” who spray painted a rock at Bishop Peak to look like a watermelon, and if caught, the person could be charged with a felony. [Cal Coast Times]

City workers plan to remove the spray paint from the rock, while police plan to charge the suspect with vandalism. If it ends up costing $1,000 or more to clean up the rock, the suspect would face a felony charge. If the cleanup costs less than $1,000, the suspect would face a misdemeanor.

Authorities have yet to identify a suspect. Investigators are asking anyone who knows the identity of the suspect to call the police department at (805) 781-7317.


Thaaaat’s right…..


$1000? Can we at least get 10% off?

Where on earth do they come up with these numbers? Good grief.


The Horror!


Let me see. One of the happiest places, maybe for now, in the USA. A sanctuary city. Support for the arts and now we have an artists who wants to keep things happy and the city wants to charge him with a felony. Or is it the $1000 dollars they need to pay their unfunded bills?


Thaaaat’s right…..

Glad to see SLO PD has their priorities in order.


Hey, SLO PD- here’s your “vandal”:


I’ll clean it for $999.

Now, can SLO stop painting our electrical boxes?


Although we shouldn’t…….umm….encourage this type of behavior I think that rock looks pretty cool!
