Narrative:
 
In July of 2018, the Ventura County Veterans Memorial, located near the intersection of Victoria Avenue and Telephone Road on the south west lawn of the Government Center was vandalized with graffiti.  Derogatory slogans were tagged on the memorial with spray paint causing over $2,000 in damage.         
 
Detectives with the Sheriff’s Gang Unit began investigating the incident.  Through an extensive investigation, numerous subjects associated with a criminal tagging crew were arrested for various charges including graffiti, narcotics, and active warrants.  Multiple search warrants were executed at various residences throughout Ventura.   
 
In October of 2018, Cameron Lundy was arrested for the memorial vandalism and other graffiti related charges. The Ventura County District Attorney’s Office filed one felony count of vandalism and Lundy pled guilty to the crime.  Lundy will be sentenced next month in Ventura County Superior Court.  The court will also consider restitution at the hearing.    
 
The Ventura County Veterans Memorial was constructed in 1985 and has been the sight of numerous ceremonies honoring not only Veterans but other Ventura County organizations for over three decades.
