Long Beach Police Department Seeking Public’s Help in Finding Car Vandalism Suspects

Three vehicles were vandalized early Wednesday morning in the area of Grand Avenue and Fountain Street, police said Thursday.

Long Beach Police Department (LBPD) officers on a routine patrol were flagged down on the 3800 block of Fountain Street at about 1:00AM Wednesday, said LBPD spokeswoman Marlene Arrona.

Officers learned three parked cars were vandalized, and suspects had smashed windows.

Arrona said no one was able to provide suspect descriptions at the time of the incident.

A post to the Long Beach, Calif. Facebook page, however, showed a surveillance video of the suspects (pictured below) bashing car windows with what appears to be a baseball bat.

Alicia Miller, who posted the video, said in the post that the suspects smashed her car’s windshield and damaged at least two other cars.

The investigation is ongoing and no further information is available, Arrona said. We will update this story as we learn more.

Anyone with information about this incident is urged to call LBPD Violent Crime Detail Detective David Ternullo at 562-570-7250.
