On Monday, February 15, 2016 at 9:27 pm APD Officers were in the area of Fulton Shipyard Road on an unrelated incident when they spotted 26-year-old Bethel Island resident, Adam Foster, vandalizing a water tower with spray paint. When officers attempted contact, Foster fled on foot. He was caught a short distance away. He admitted to cutting a fence to gain entry to the water tower and to spray painting the zodiac symbol for “Leo” on the tower. He was in possession of a back pack that contained several cans of spray paint and wire cutters. Upon further questioning Foster admitted to tagging at least 11 locations in Antioch and Oakley.

APD estimates the damage caused by Foster to be several thousand dollars. Foster has no prior criminal history. Foster was taken to county jail where he was booked for felony vandalism.
