Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station deputies have arrested a Santa Clarita woman who allegedly spray-painted walls on a city park building in Saugus early Tuesday morning, also discovering she was allegedly in possession of forged checks, station authorities said Wednesday afternoon.
Tiffany Thomas, 31, was arrested at her home, where deputies also found checks she allegedly had forged.
At about 6:45 a.m. Tuesday, two witnesses saw a woman standing next to a freshly painted mural on the outside of a restroom building on the 27200 block of Seco Canyon Road, with spray paint cans around her.
When the witnesses confronted her, the woman gathered up her belongings and took off in her vehicle.
A third witness reported her license plate number of the woman’s car to deputies, who began a search of the area. One of the deputies found a vehicle matching the suspect’s description parked on Guadilamar Drive, just off Seco Canyon Road.
The deputy found the vehicle unoccupied. With the assistance of a sergeant and another deputy, they knocked on doors of nearby residences and found the suspect in her home.
Deputies also observed several stolen checks authorities believe Thomas forged. They arrested and booked at the SCV Sheriff’s Station on felony vandalism and forgery charges.
