Wenatchee High School Hit by Graffiti Vandalism, Two Arrested


WENATCHEE – The quiet community of Wenatchee was disturbed by a wave of graffiti vandalism that targeted Wenatchee High School and adjacent areas, including the school district’s Transportation building. Wenatchee Police Officers, responding to the initial call, discovered that several school buses and other properties were defaced with gang-related graffiti.

The spree of vandalism extended beyond the school premises, as officers received multiple reports of similar graffiti in residential areas neighboring the high school. The pattern of the graffiti suggested a connection to the incidents at the high school.

In a swift response, School Resource Officers (SROs) reviewed security footage from the high school, revealing two individuals actively spraying graffiti. Collaborating closely with school staff, the SROs successfully identified the suspects involved in this series of vandalism.

Arrests were made shortly after. 18-year-old Daniel Vargas Guzman and a 17-year-old male, whose name has been withheld due to his juvenile status, were apprehended. Guzman was booked into the Chelan County Regional Jail, while the juvenile was placed in the Juvenile Detention Facility. Both face charges of Malicious Mischief in the Second Degree, a serious felony offense.
