SAN ANTONIO — After one of the two suspected vandals turned himself in Saturday afternoon, San Antonio police have arrested the second and third suspect.
A police affidavit states 19-year-old Andres Castaneda, 20-year-old Gabriella Fritz, and 21-year-old Sydney Faris will all face "graffiti" charges.
Castaneda turned himself in Friday night after surveillance video was shown on television and online. According to arrest records, he admitted to being one of the suspects in the video and also identified Fritz as an accomplice, admitted the vehicle in the surveillance video belongs to her.
The Missions had recently undergone massive restorations. Las Misiones, a group that preserves San Antonio's history, said it only hopes there's room for the cleanup costs in the budget.
"They sprayed the walls with water. They let it seep in a little bit. And they literally scraped the it with a scraper and took off the paint. They wound up taking the first level of plaster off," Diana Martinez with Las Misiones said. "We're not sure how much it's going to cost us to re-plaster."
Because they're 18th century buildings, you have to get experts that know how to treat old buildings, particularly limestone," she said.
