Deputies arrested an intoxicated man who allegedly broke windows at several businesses in Lake Elsinore, sheriff’s deputies said Friday.
The vandalism occurred Thursday night at a shopping center at Central and Cambern avenues, according to the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department.
“Several business owners/managers had to respond on Christmas Eve and take valuable time away from family and loved ones to secure their business,” sheriff’s officials said in a Facebook post.
A photo included in the post shows a rock on the floor of one the businesses, along with photos of shattered windows.
Authorities said the man was under the influence of illegal drugs and was taken to a hospital after he was detained.
Charges will be filed out of custody, sheriff’s officials said.
