The air monitoring trailer in the Banning Branch Library rear parking lot near Eader Elementary School was vandalized on Thursday evening, January 23, with equipment stolen and trailer apparatus damaged. These videos are of the vandalism and theft, as well as an image of the person of interest riding their bicycle in front of the school just prior to their activity at the air monitoring trailer.
