FAIRFIELD — A vandalism investigation led to one arrest in Fairfield late Monday.

Fairfield police were alerted just before midnight that an area adjacent to Interstate 80 near the 2700 block of Martin Road was possibly being vandalized, according to a police news release.

Arriving officers found freshly painted surfaces in the Bradbury Basin, an area frequently vandalized by taggers, the release states. While investigating the crime, police said one person was seen fleeing the area, jumping over fences into the nearby residential area.

A short distance from the scene, a patrol officer spotted a vehicle speeding away from the area. The driver of that vehicle was contacted and police identified him as 19-year-old Fairfield resident Brandon Barajas-Cerda.

Police said evidence was recovered from Barajas-Cerda and his vehicle that allegedly linked him to the vandalism.

Barajas-Cerda was arrested and booked into the Solano County Jail on suspicion of felony vandalism. His bail was set at $15,000.
