A juvenile has been arrested in last week’s vandalism of a Gurdwara in Jurupa Valley, California, when the word “terrorist” was spray-painted on the walls of the Sikh house of worship:

Investigators conducted a lengthy investigation into the vandalism that led to the arrest of a juvenile responsible for the temple vandalism. Subsequent investigation revealed that the same juvenile was also responsible for an ongoing vandalism spree that began in August of 2012, resulting in 33 separate vandalism crimes, totaling over $6,800 in damages.

It is not believed that incident is connected to this week’s first anniversary of the Oak Creek, Wisconsin, mass shooting at the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin by a white supremacist. The FBI has reportedly also met with the Jurupa Valley Sikh congregation and SALDEF about future engagement.
