Ceres CA- On 05-08-16, at 09:14 AM, the homeowners of a residence in the 3900 Block of Bella Flora Dr. reported someone had vandalized their truck and boat. At 03:20 AM the vandals poured brown paint on the hood of the truck and egged the vehicle and the boat. The vandals removed an American Flag and a Donald Trump flag from a pole in front of their home. Three males were seen running away from the scene.

Around the same time frame, the same suspected vandals targeted a home in the 3900 Block of Eau Claire Ave. a few blocks from the Bella Flora home. Brown paint was poured on the walkway, windows and outer walls of the residence. Six people were seen running from the Eau Claire home.

The Eau Clair home did not have any political signs posted. It appears both homes were targets of opportunity and not politically motivated.

Anyone with information on the identity of the responsible is encouraged to contact the Ceres Police Department (209) 538-5712. This incident is pending further investigation. No further details will be provided at this time.
