Two additional arrests are being reported in connection with what's being called a hate crime attack at a Central Coast high school.

All three arrested in connection with incident so far are from Lompoc.

There have been two additional arrests in connection with what detectives say was a hate crime attack at a Central Coast high school.

Someone broke into Lompoc’s Cabrillo High School last week and painted racial slurs on the building and even on some murals. There was also other damage like broken windows.

An 18-year-old Lompoc man was arrested last week for the attack. Now, Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s detectives say they’ve made two additional arrests. They say Luke Quezada and Shane Monroe were arrested this week on hate crime, vandalism, conspiracy, and contributing to the delinquency of a minor charges.

Quezada and Monroe are both 18 years old, and are from Lompoc. Detectives say the investigation is continuing, with more arrests possible.
