Lt. Ryan Huddleston sent a public safety announcement regarding recent incidents of vandalism on the Diablo Valley College campus this morning to staff and students alike. The announcement contains an image of a suspect who is described as a white male between 20 and 30 years old, standing about 5 feet 8 inches, and smokes cigarettes.

According to the report, campus police are hoping to acquire more information through students who may recognize the suspected individual. There is a PDF of the PSA here: Public safety announcement 4152019

DVC has a history of graffiti problems; most recently there were two cases of hateful messages displayed on campus this semester. However, police believe the events are unrelated. The notice states “this event is dissimilar from other events that have caused concern on our campus.”

Should you recognize the individual or believe you have information concerning the case, campus police ask you to contact the assigned detective. Tips can remain anonymous.
