A 31-year-old woman was arrested on suspicion of felony vandalism and forgery for allegedly spray painting three walls at a city park building in Saugus, a sheriff’s spokeswoman said Wednesday.

Two people reported seeing Tiffany Thomas about 6:50 a.m. Tuesday standing next to a painted mural on the outside of a park restroom building in the 27200 block of Seco Canyon Road — with spray paint cans around her, said Public Information Officer Shirley Miller of the sheriff’s Santa Clarita Valley Station.

“When the citizens made contact with her, the woman gathered up her belongings, and took off in her vehicle,” Miller said. “A third citizen at the scene was able to get the license plate number of the woman’s vehicle as she took off.”

Deputies responding to the scene, and using the information from a witness, were about to find an unoccupied vehicle matching the witness’ description parked on Guadilamar Drive, just off of Seco Canyon Road, she said.

Deputies located Miller, after a search of some of the homes in the area, she said.

“While at the location, deputies also observed several stolen checks that were forged by the suspect,” Miller said.

Thomas was arrested on suspicion of felony vandalism and forgery, Miller said.
