There has been some new graffiti showing up, mostly on the south end of Fallbrook on the building at 1588 S. Mission and another one directly across the street.
Unlike the typical gang graffiti, this is "LWS" spray painted on the buildings, signs and windows. Also, on the brick wall at the bottom of the building at 1588 there is Little Watts 90250, which is the zip code for Hawthorne, California.
Local building owners are struggling to remove the paint, especially from raw brick.
Village News asked the Sheriff's department Deputy Wesley Hatfield if they were aware of any new gang activity in the area.
"Currently we have no information that any outside criminal element is attempting to make our community their new place of residence. There is also no articulable evidence that anyone is trying to cause a specific disturbance with our local population. It appears to be an isolated incident at this time and is under investigation," wrote Dep. Hatfield.
Another building owner, who asked to remain anonymous, voiced their discontent that if graffiti isn't removed fast enough, the property owners are fined, so they are victimized and then fined on top of everything.
