The California Highway Patrol has arrested a Vallejo man on suspicion of spray-painting a sound wall on eastbound Interstate Highway 80 in Fairfield on Thursday.
The CHP responded to a call about the tagging on I-80, west of Manuel Campos Parkway, around 9:45 p.m., CHP Sgt. Diana McDermott said.
The two males who were tagging the wall fled through a hole in the fence that leads to Marigold Drive when they saw the CHP officers, McDermott said.
CHP officers found evidence at the scene that identified 24-year-old Cesar Arreguin of Vallejo as one of the taggers. He was arrested Friday and booked into the Solano County Jail for felony vandalism, McDermott said.
Investigators believe Arreguin and his associates are responsible for a recent rash of vandalism on freeways and private property in SolanoCounty, McDermott said.
McDermott said the vandalism usually occurs after dark making ithard to catch the vandals who cause thousands of dollars of taxpayer money to clean up.
The CHP plans to make more vandalism arrests in the future, McDermott said.
