Graffiti vandals put in overtime on the Mesa right before Halloween, using black paint to cause more than $3,600 in damage to homes, stores, and public property. Late at night and into the early morning on October 28 and 29, 11 locations on Meigs Road, Aurora Avenue, and Cliff Drive received unwanted tags of “LEM” and “ALIEN,” apparently from a tagging crew, according to Santa Barbara Police. Detective Christina Marshall asks to be contacted with any information on the vandalism at or (805) 897-2309. Calls can be made anonymously to (805) 897-2386.
