One of the males was identified by detectives as a 17-year-old boy, police said. A search warrant was seized at a home in the 7500 block of Church Street in Yucca Valley, where authorities say they seized evidence linking the 17-year-old to the vandalism. The unidentified boy faces burglary and felony vandalism charges.

The two other vandals remain at large and detectives need help identifying them. A description of them was not released, but sheriff’s officials released surveillance images that showed both appeared to be men in their 20s with full beards and wearing baseball caps. One wore an orange T-shirt, and the other was shirtless with no visible tattoos.

Anyone with information about the vandalism or the identities of the two men at large can contact the San Bernardino County sheriff’s Morongo Basin Station at (760) 366-4175.
