Sheriff's deputies responded to a Vandalism call in the 1400 block of S. Mission Rd at 8:40 am.
Upon arrival, sheriffs observed broken night lights, multiple plants pulled out of the landscaping and thrown around, and a water spigot that had been broken off.
One of the businesses in the center, who wished to remain anonymous, stated that they were very familiar with Mr. Beatty and were fearful because of prior issues with the homeless population.

One drug charge was for possession of a non-narcotic drug/controlled substance and another one was for controlled substance/paraphernalia.
