Sheriff’s Deputies Catch Hobo Camp Vandal In the Act

A spray-painting vandal at Hobo Camp on the Bizz Johnson Trail was caught in the act on August 21st, thanks a tip from the public and quick work by a Lassen County Sheriff’s Deputy.

According to Sheriff Dean Growdon, his office received a report of vandalism in progress near Hobo Camp prompting both a Deputy and a BLM Ranger to respond.

The deputy located and detained a subject in the area who was found to be in possession of multiple spray paint cans.

The subject was identified by the Sheriff’s Office as 19-year old Lake Almanor resident Byron Glenn.

Glenn, who was turned over to the BLM Ranger who conducted further investigation, was later booked at the Lassen County Jail for a violation 594 PC, Vandalism.

He was released on a notice to appear after booking.

“Glenn is believed to be responsible for some of the graffiti that was occurring along the Bizz Johnson Trail,” said Growdon. “It is also believed that there are other vandals ‘tagging’ in the area.”

“The Lassen County Sheriff’s Office appreciates the caller who reported this crime in progress. The public is encouraged to continue to report these times of crimes.”
