An anonymous tip led investigators to Monterey Park resident Abel Samano, 18, who was arrested for felony vandalism, according to Alhambra PD. He is accused of tagging the Alhambra Park Veterans Memorial wall on Nov. 5. The wall includes names of local veterans who died in service.
"We thank our Alhambra partners for the lead that led to the arrest," Alhambra PD posted on Facebook Monday, one day before Veterans Day. "Great job by all and we are pleased to solve this crime before Veterans Day!!! To all our Veterans, thank you for your service."
