Since April 19, 2023, the Tracy Police Department (PD) has been made aware of several incidents where two local taquerias have been vandalized.
Based on the surveillance footage recovered from local businesses, the same subject is seen using river rocks to break windows at each establishment. The subject appears to be a dark-skinned male adult, believed to be African American, wearing a face covering during each incident.
