Graffiti Vandal Strikes In Canyon Lake

The cost of damage is undetermined, but police say it exceeds the felony threshold in the vandalism statute of the California Penal Code.

Police are on the lookout for a vandal who caused damage in Canyon Lake.

Thursday, officers from the Canyon Lake Police Department responded to the 22000 block of W. San Joaquin Drive regarding a reported vandalism.

When officers arrived, they discovered a vandal had spray-painted graffiti on several homes and vehicles, according to Sgt. Victor Tejeda of the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department. The suspect also spray-painted nearby park property: a bathroom, sidewalk, and jungle gym, Tejeda reported.

The cost of damage is undetermined, but Tejeda said it exceeds the felony threshold in the vandalism statute of the California Penal Code.

Anyone with information is encouraged to contact Deputy Crawford, Perris Police Department, at (951) 210-1000, or via email at PerrisStation@RiversideSheriff.org.

Okay boys, really? It was tongue-in-cheek Greg...no need to get testy with each other...we're all on the same team...hate the taggers!

True, this case you bring up is a bit much. He should have just shot the stereo making the noise..

@Lake Elsinore Resident: Since I live in Wildomar, what goes on here does concern me. I don't know anything about the LE Planning Commission, so I won't comment on that. I do know Marsha, who is on our City Council, and she is ethical and moral and I would have a hard time believing that she has any interest in the LECC or Planning Commission. Whomever she (or anyone) is related to is insignificant, as it doesn't define who they are. To impune her integrity by proxy is just wrong.

???? I didn't see any comments form "Martha Bridges" here. I also didn't see her name mentioned in the article. Are you just placing her name and your rant about her here to expand your own agenda against her? I personally have seen a lot of her comments, and don't agree with most of them, however... she is entitled as much as the rest of us to do as she pleases. If she has the money to make people uncomfortable and cities miserable, then she is free to use it that way if she chooses.. Heck.. Politicians do it all day, every day.. and with our money.. lol
Tina Tyra November 30, 2012 at 10:54 PM
@Imperfect Man. You're right! Everyone is entitled to their opinions. So I'm not sure why you're calling my opinions a "rant". I just object to anyone costing our cities more money than they should have to spend in these tough economic times. That includes graffiti vandals and vandals who choose to file frivolous lawsuits just to suit their own needs for attention. There is no benefit to that for anyone. But this is the time of year to be grateful. I am grateful we have our parks back! Thank you to the voters :)
Imperfect Man November 30, 2012 at 11:09 PM
My point, which you seem to not have gotten is that your "comment" above has nothing to do with the article. Therefore, I termed it a "rant" which is apparently a continuation of some point you may have made somewhere else. As I pointed out, I don't see anything from Martha Bridges related to this article. Therefore, you bringing your, complaint, rant, opinion, spewing, or whatever word you or I choose to use to describe it, is nothing more than a personal attack upon another person who comments in other areas. And thus, is basically a violation of the terms we all agree to when we sign up to comment on the patch. How does your attack upon "Martha Bridges" and her ability to make the cities pay through law suits as opposed to voting in more expense to cities, have anything to do with the article?
Tina Tyra November 30, 2012 at 11:48 PM
Ahhhh I get it now...you ARE her. Good disguise :) You obviously didn't read my comments. I pointed out why I made the comment and the reasons for it...but I guess you couldn't make the bridge. No pun intended. Some people just argue to be arguing, not to make specific points. I think you might resemble that. Next topic.
Imperfect Man December 01, 2012 at 12:15 AM
Tina Tyra, I am not Martha Bridges. Because I stand up and call you on your violation of the terms of using the Patch comments section, does not give you justification to accuse me of being someone I am not. However, it does show just how far you will go to make unjustified statements about other users of the comments section. All while you suggest to others that it is wrong to "impune (sic)" "integrity by proxy is just wrong", I call that Hypocrisy. Your comment above had nothing to do with the article. That was the point of my response to your comment. I attempted to point that out to you twice. Apparently you have an agenda that blinds you to the obvious clear statement made by me.
Constant Comment December 01, 2012 at 12:30 AM
@Imperfect Man, good name by the way, let me see if I can't attempt to clarify this a bit for you. I suppose the problem originated when I wrote that the vandalism wasn't the only thing that is a problem in Wildomar. Thats when Tina expanded on that concept & added that Marfa was a huge problem as well. (That was the "bridge" between the two.) You will read that many times, these threads will expand to many, many different ideas & points of view. You can not control the direction that any thread takes. This is an open forum for all kinds of "complaints, rants, opinions, spewing" etc...you won't be able to curtail that either. You will also find that some people & some topics will only bring out the worst in people. Thats when I might suggest some of the other PATCH sites that might be more mellow & to your liking. One last thing, Marfa has many aliases, as so do a lot of posters on here, so it is not a stretch for Tina to think that you were one of her alias names. Hope that clears up some confusion here. }~)
Constant Comment December 01, 2012 at 12:31 AM
@ Tina, please don't feed the troll LER.....you see what happens! }~)
Tina Tyra December 01, 2012 at 12:36 AM
@ Imperfect...I do post with my own name on here because I stand behind my opinions and comments. I think Constant explained it best below, better than I can. It is a forum for thoughts, comments, and all things local. I always find it interesting how people get so enmeshed in arguing. I have no desire to argue and I think I made the points I wanted to make. Have a great weekend!
Imperfect Man December 01, 2012 at 12:55 AM
A violation of the terms is a violation of the terms. As you both have pointed out, all kinds of people have all kinds of comments. However, that does not change the fact that a rant about someone you personally don't like, or their actions outside the comments section that have nothing to do with the article and attacking a user for those actions in an unrelated article is a violation of the terms. Justifying a false accusation made against a person who comments here, because someone has aliases does not make the false accusation right. I use whatever user name I choose. Because I don't use my real name is not an implication of any wrongdoing on my part. I stand behind my comments with my user name as viamently as anyone else. According to the laws in this country and this state, I have the right to use whatever name I choose, as you do. That does not make my comments any less accurate or valuable than any other. Constant Comment, expanding your comment into a personal attack against a specific person is not right. I don't care how you or Tina want to justify it. I am making a statement, and it is the same statement throughout. What Tina did is wrong. As you point out, this is an open "comments" section. Unfortunately, some choose to use it to make false accusations against other users and they use it to spread their personal gossip. That is wrong.
Imperfect Man December 01, 2012 at 01:00 AM
Correction - viamently should be "vehemently". Forgive the error.
Tina Tyra December 01, 2012 at 01:05 AM
I think you meant "vehemently". And you are mistaken. Stating a fact is not "gossip". Just because I named her does not make it a "personal attack" either. You can contact the city and verify that a lawsuit has been filed. You sound very defensive and impassioned...actually vehement!
Imperfect Man December 01, 2012 at 01:10 AM
For someone who doesn't like to "argue", and not wanting to carry on with this thread, you sure seem bent upon justifying and continuing the discussion. lol You made a false accusation against me. And I made the correction on the spelling of the word already. Yes, naming another user here for your rant about people destroying a town not included in this article is a perpetuation of your personal attack against a user here. But, I can see you are the type who will justify anything you do, without an apology for a wrong statement or accusation. The fact still remains, what you did is wrong.
Tina Tyra December 01, 2012 at 01:17 AM
I don't want to argue, but I will defend myself against incorrect accusations. I would be happy to apologize if I said anything that was factually incorrect, which I did not, save for thinking you may be in disguise. You can hide behind your mask, but that just makes your comments and accusations suspect. You never focused on the point I made, just your defense of someone whose actions are indefensible. On that note, I'm going to go enjoy my weekend. You should too.
Constant Comment December 01, 2012 at 01:24 AM
@Imperfect Man, going off the deep end there buddy! The violation of terms that you speak of, is the Patches responsibility to enforce or not. Not yours. Sorry you don't see all the connections in this thread, but we do. Nobody ever said that by using an 'alias' name is wrong either. I'll be the first one to defend that too. What IS wrong, is when a person uses more than one name & then pats herself on the back, which is what people have accussed Marfa of doing. Again, not about you. No one said that you're comments were less valuable. You are entitled to spew as much gossip as your little heart desires. But don't fool yourself into thinking that you are entitled to tell other posters that their own opinions "are wrong". No one has that power. }~)
Imperfect Man December 01, 2012 at 01:41 AM
"You can hide behind your mask, but that just makes your comments and accusations suspect.", no - in fact none of my comments are suspect. You naming a person who comments here, in an unrelated article to perpetuate your dislike for that person or their actions, is an attack on that person. Personal attacks are a violation of the rules (whether or not the statements are true, they are attacks and aren't supposed to be done). You have made a false accusation against me (my username) by accusing me of hiding behind a mask. So, now.. my exercising the right to use a unique username is implying that I am hiding.. Hmm.. yeah.. okay... NOT!! As with your seeming nemesis (Martha Bridges), you seem to lack the ability to look objectively at your own actions and see where you have done anything wrong. To be honest, that mentality (like that of the "vandal" in the article) is what is destroying this entire world, not just your little corner of it. In that respect, "Constant Comment" is correct.. it's not just the taggers "destroying" the town. Yes, please do go and enjoy your weekend.. let go of your pride and your need to justify what you have done to me (falsely accusing me). In fact, why don't you volunteer to clean your park restrooms? They seem to be a very important part of your life.. or at least the funding for them, anyway. I don't defend Martha Bridges, I don't like the things she has to say. I will defend her right to exercise the same rights you and I have.
Imperfect Man December 01, 2012 at 01:52 AM
Constant Comment, Hmmm... so... making false accusations and personally calling out other users of the Patch is okay as long as the Patch doesn't enforce the rules.. Is that what you are saying? Someone pointing out that your apparent friend, Tina is violating the rules is beyond my right to do? Yet, it is okay to bring the contempt for another user, because they have filed a suit against the city, to an unrelated article, and label the suit "frivolous", when the jurisdiction for such classifications is left to the courts, not individual citizens? I see the connections you and Tina make. However, I also see the contradiction in what you consider other people to have as rights and those you and Tina allow yourselves..
The Teller of Truth December 01, 2012 at 02:34 AM
@Imperfect, you need to relax and quit being so anal, antagonistic, foolish, judgemental, blithering, contradictary, etc....just pick one or all...we don't care.
Imperfect Man December 01, 2012 at 02:54 AM
The Teller of Truth, So, this is a collective? Anyone with opposing views and expecting people to account for their actions (which is basically what the other two expect of others, based on their comments) isn't allowed unless I belong to your collective? Get over it. I will continue to oppose false accusations made against me and will continue to point out that I, as well as others have the same rights Tina and Constant Comment (and now you) have. Don't like it? Too bad. My thoughts, my comments and as Constant Comment suggested, "you won't be able to curtail that either.". A false accusation was made about me, I have the right to harp about it as long as I decide to do so. Until the person who made the accusation makes the correction. And as long after as I deem suitable.. Just as Tina can harp about her dislike for Martha Bridges' law suit in a different community from the community this article was posted in. I like how you included the word "we" as though I am an outsider.. As I have pointed out.. "you" now as a collective, don't seem to be able to handle much, outside your personal opinions. When one of you stop, the other seems to like to jump in and make demeaning remarks. Tag-teaming.. isn't it a wonderful way to attempt to beat someone down.. lol Let Tina answer for her accusation against me, I'm sure she is a big girl. If she doesn't want to, that is her choice, but don't complain because I continue to bring it up. It's what people here do, right?
Constant Comment December 01, 2012 at 03:47 AM
No...not really. Get over yourself dude. Like TOT already stated, nobody cares. }~0
Imperfect Man December 01, 2012 at 03:49 AM
If nobody cares, why do you keep coming back and commenting on what I have to say? I suggest you aren't telling the truth... lol
Imperfect Man December 01, 2012 at 03:50 AM

The poor people who own the book store on casino Dr. have to repaint their sign and roof every couple of weeks.

I finally got out of the eye sore of Lake Elsinore, LV and moved into Canyon Lake a month ago. I thought it would be much safer here but I was wrong. I had my vehicle broken into the other night and the odd thing about this is that the perpetrator or perpetrators only took a bottle of cologne even though there was golf clubs, tennis racket 4 pairs of sun glasses, there were 2 $10.00 Dollar rolls of quarters in the center console that I forgot about even though who ever did this must have been a punk kid. I got lucky. Additionally I came to realize a couple hours later I got a call from my bank stating a neighbor found my leather note book with my checks inside. She left her phone # and name, I called her and she brought it to my house saying this was left on my driveway with papers coming out of the holders and saw your checks and called the bank. I was extremely grateful to her. Again, I got lucky! And now to find out about this Graffiti issue! The Police seem to make pretty fast work of issues here in the Lake. And I for one will be on the look out!
tom December 03, 2012 at 10:14 PM
Again canyon lake has no police. Although canyon lake is real good at hiding it crime. Outrigger park is a drug den.
Roadrunner December 04, 2012 at 11:17 AM
Tom how do you figure there is no police in Canyon Lake? The city of Canyon Lake contracts with the Riverside County Sheriff's Department and have deputies on duty. All be it one at a time on duty, but they are there. They have several good deputies that are after the crime and don't simply hide out, so you might want to get your facts straight.
tom December 04, 2012 at 03:07 PM
Part time officers are deferent than a police officer. Transferred every couple of years no obligation to the citizens. Seal Beach has police. Shop shotting 2 minute response time, had the shooter in 5. I know the deputies good people spread real thin.
tom December 04, 2012 at 03:49 PM
Patrol officers run in pairs. one backups the other. All calls require backup. Evan traffic stops.
