Three juveniles allegedly went on a vandalism spree in the gated community of Canyon Lake, spray-painting homes, vehicles and street signs with racial epithets and setting a fire on the grounds of the country club, authorities said Thursday.
The boys, whose identities were not released, were arrested following a joint investigation by Riverside County sheriff's deputies and Cal Fire personnel, said Sgt. Glenn Williams.
He said the vandalism occurred along Cove View Street on Tuesday night, while a "small fire" was set at the Canyon Lake Clubhouse earlier.
The suspects used black paint to damage "homes, vehicles and street signs (on which) racial slurs and vulgar words" were painted, Williams alleged.
He said one of the boys had been under investigation for previous acts of arson occurring in the local area over the previous two months.
The three were booked into Southwest Juvenile Hall in Murrieta.
