Vague and apparently unfounded graffiti threats were discovered Thursday in boys’ restrooms at Vista High School and Rancho Buena Vista High School.

“The Sheriff’s Department has been working with Vista Unified School District to investigate these incidents,” sheriff’s Sgt. Shane Watts said. “All threats are taken seriously, and those found responsible will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.”

An increased law enforcement presence will be provided at both campuses Friday as a precaution, according to Watts.

“Currently, there is no evidence to suggest these threats are credible or related,” Watts said Thursday evening.
