Posted on Wednesday, June 20, 2012 12:23am


A Ventura County man is facing multiple charges, after a vandalism spree which affected businesses, and a Boys and Girls Club in eastern Ventura County.

Ventura County Sheriff’s investigators say over the last two months, Jose Betancourt attacked multiple locations in the Moorpark area, causing thousands of dollars in damage as he sprayed them with paint.

Detectives say they gathered enough evidence to pinpoint the 18 year old as the vandal, and after getting a search warrant, arrested him at his home on the 100 block of First Street in Moorpark. They say the recovered evidence linking him to the incidents. He’s facing seven separate charges stemming from the vandalism.
