Meyers site vandalized

El Dorado County Sheriff’s deputies are looking for three teen-age boys who they believe caused at least $3,000 in damage to a construction project in Meyers. The building will be the Sterling Village Retirement Home.

Early Sunday morning a contractor found blue spray-paint that read “DNZ” on numerous dry walls, 30 doors kicked in and 15 fire extinguishers discharged.

Several of the DNZ tags ended with a the letter Z turned into a devil’s tail.

Sunday around 11 a.m. the contractor found three boys, two with dark hair, one with blonde, jumping BMX bikes off shelving taken from the construction project.

Two boys immediately rode off, a third boy took off after the contractor began to question him. Deputies believe the boys live in the area.

Investigators collected fingerprints, footprints, and tire tracks of the suspects and have information that may lead to an arrest, said El Dorado County Sheriff’s Deputy J. Murphy.

If arrested, the suspects will be booked for burglary and felony vandalism. Murphy said anyone with information about the crime is asked to call (530) 573-3000.
