Two teens were linked to a slew of recent graffiti acts throughout the city. An alert Rocklin Police Officer spotted three suspicious acting male juveniles at Save Mart at 3021 Stanford Ranch Road and a subsequent investigation connected the duo to recent tagging. At approximately 10:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 6, after the Del Oro High School versus Rocklin High School football game, a Rocklin Police Officer saw three 14-year-olds in the back of the market. There was fresh tagging in the immediate vicinity. The officer contacted the three and developed information that two of them were responsible for tagging in different areas of the city including areas on Park Drive and in the Johnson-Springview Park area. The two juveniles were cited for vandalism (594 of the Penal Code) and possession of instrumentalities of graffiti. They were released to their parents. They will be required to appear in Juvenile Court on a future date. Rocklin Police warn parents and youths about section 13202.6 of the Vehicle Code stating that for every conviction of a person for a violation of Section 594, 594.3, or 594.4 of the Penal Code, committed while the person was 13 years of age or older, the court shall suspend the person’s driving privilege for not more than two years. ~ Staff report
