A California Highway Patrol helicopter assisted CHP officers on the ground who arrested two teenage boys for allegedly vandalizing a wall near Interstate Highway 680 in Concord Sunday night.  The CHP helicopter was flying over Concord when the crew received a report from the Contra Costa CHP Office about two male suspects “tagging” the freeway sound wall on Highway 680 just south of state Highway 242, according to the CHP.  The helicopter arrived in the area in less than 30 seconds, and
the crew spotted two suspects fleeing the scene on the Iron Horse Trail that runs parallel to the highway, according to the CHP. CHP officers on the ground, with the help of the helicopter, which illuminated the suspects with a spotlight, took the suspects into custody at about 9:15 p.m. Sunday, according to the CHP.  The suspects, a 15-year-old boy and 17-year-old boy, both of
Concord, were arrested and charged with vandalism, according to the CHP.
