Camarillo, CA – A 20-year-old Camarillo man has been arrested on suspicion of spray-painting swastikas and other hate-crime graffiti at a Jewish preschool and other locations.
Jonathan Samuel Latino was arrested on suspicion of felony vandalism and a hate crime and was being held in Ventura County Jail.
Several homes, businesses, vehicles and other properties in Camarillo, including the Gan Camarillo Preschool on Ventura Boulevard, were vandalized with spray paint last month. The graffiti included swastikas and derogatory racial comments, sheriff’s officials said.
A surveillance camera from one business captured video of a suspect, leading investigators to Latino.
