An 18-year-old woman was arrested last night on suspicion of causing more than $100,000 in damage to the city of Vista, according to a Sheriff’s spokesman.
Sergeant G. Twyman said Ramona Montes is responsible for more than 300 incidents of graffiti vandalism, between August of last year and April of this year.
A combination of law enforcement teams “conducted a directed patrol” which focused on graffiti, the sergeant said. “This detail targeted the areas along the railroad tracks in the City of Vista and areas frequented by taggers,” according to the sergeant, who works in the Sheriff’s Vista station.
Sheriff’s records show that Ramona Elena Montes, 18, is currently held at the Vista jail in lieu of $10,000 bond.
Montes is decribed as an Hispanic female, 5 feet 5 inches tall and 130 pounds.
“She has been linked to a crew called CFB,” the sergeant said in a phone interview this morning, Wednesday, May 1, 2013. The group CFB identifies itself as Cali Female Bombers, according to the sergeant.
Ramona Elena Montes, 18, is due to be arraigned on criminal charges in San Diego’s North County Superior courthouse tomorrow afternoon, Thursday, May 2, 2013.
