Employees of the sheriff’s and district attorney’s office in a Southern California county were arrested after security footage showed them vandalizing a “Black Lives Matter” sign on a homeowner’s fence, according to the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office.

The (homeowner) posted footage showing several people vandalizing the sign and attempting to tear it down. Detectives with the sheriff’s office allegedly recognized Darrin Stone, a service technician at the Ventura pre-trial detention facility, in the footage after the man posted it to social media, CNN reported.

The sheriff’s office said the footage showed Stone vandalizing the sign twice on June 13 and 19, both while he was off-duty. He has been cited for misdemeanor vandalism and placed on administrative leave.

Meanwhile, Craig Anderson, an investigative assistant in Ventura County District Attorney Greg Totten’s office, has also been cited for vandalism and resigned after the footage allegedly showed him cutting down the sign and leaving upon noticing the camera.
