  • Thank you to our Police Department for being tough on crime! Last Friday, officers responded to 100 North Broadway after a report of vandalism. When they arrived, they located a gang member with more than a dozen spray paint cans in his backpack and fresh paint on his hands. Officers later determined the suspect also tagged the Bank of America on 2nd Ave. The suspect was booked on three counts of felony vandalism due to the gang enhancement. Great job Escondido PD!

Through a follow up investigation to locate the out of town property owner, Code Enforcement learned that the tenants were being evicted and the entire property was in the same condition. On the day of the eviction, a Code Enforcement officer met the Sheriff’s deputy and the property owner’s agent on the site. The Code Enforcement officer walked the property with the agent and issued a Notice of Violation directing that all trash, junk and debris be removed from the property. Two weeks later, everything has been removed from the property and interior renovations are under way.
