RANCHO SANTA MARGARITA...Orange County Sheriff’s Department deputies on Thursday, April 20, arrested a man suspected of vandalizing more than 20 vehicles over a five-month period in various locations in Rancho Santa Margarita.

The first reported incidents occurred in late 2016 but an increase in the frequency and severity of the vandalism prompted Sheriff’s investigators to launch a dedicated, comprehensive investigation utilizing multiple resources to identify a suspect.

After interviewing multiple witnesses, collecting and reviewing surveillance footage and conducting undercover surveillance operations, investigators arrested My Ngoc Tien Nguyen, 38, of Tustin.

Nguyen was booked on suspicion of multiple misdemeanor and felony counts of vandalism. He is being held in lieu of $100,000 bail. Photo:OCSD
