Police have released the names of two recent McClatchy High School graduates who were arrested in connection with Tuesday's vandalism on the Freeport Boulevard campus. Isaiah Rose and Jacob Rodriguez, both of whom are 18, were arrested for felony vandalism, resisting arrest and conspiracy.
There is still one suspect outstanding in the case. This vandalism incident comes nearly a week after McClatchy High School was vandalized as part of a senior prank, resulting in 30 students being barred from walking in graduation.
When the first vandalism incident occurred, several students reported that a separate small group of students was responsible for spraying graffiti and vandalizing the campus. The school did not release the names of those students, though this second case of vandalism draws parallels to the first -- they both resulted in graffiti on the school's campus.
Gabe Ross, chief communications officer for the Sacramento City Unified School District, said Tuesday that the second vandalism case was being investigated separately and it was too early to determine if it was related to the first.
Early Tuesday morning, Sacramento police officers were dispatched about 1:30 a.m. to a report of suspicious individuals on McClatchy's campus and found suspects vandalizing the school. Police spokesman Sgt. Andrew Pettit said the suspects began to run away. Offices caught Rose and Rodriguez, but the third suspect ran away.
Upon investigation of the school, police found freshly painted graffiti.
