SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. — Police officers have arrested a man who they say was spray-painting a stopped Union Pacific train in San Luis Obispo, Calif., the San Luis Obispo Tribune reports.

The Santa Maria native was arrested on Sunday after police caught him in the act of spray-painting a train. The police were in the area after receiving reports of trespassers near railroad property. As they approached the man and another male accomplice, they ran away from the officers.

After a brief foot pursuit, law enforcement officials arrested one of the vandals. The 24-year-old was taken to a county jail on suspicion of felony vandalism and resisting a police officer, according to the article. His bail was set at $20,000.

Railroad officials estimate the men did more than $10,000 in damage.
