The six-week investigation was launched when a detective noticed a rash of graffiti near Castaic Junction that was linked to taggers from the Antelope Valley. In an early morning raid Thursday, sheriff’s deputies arrested Joseph Mendoza, 27; Carlos Chave, 26; and Joshua Calderon, 23, all of Palmdale, on suspicion of felony vandalism. Another suspect, whose name was not released, was contacted by phone and agreed to surrender, authorities said. The four are suspected of causing at least $400,000 damage in the Antelope Valley, Santa Clarita, Los Angeles, Mojave and Ventura. Deputies said targets included the historic Freedom Train in Mojave, which served as a traveling museum in the U.S. Bicentennial in 1976.

New Delhi: The Trinamool Congress Sunday wrote to the Election Commission complaining that Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s address to the media at Kedarnath shrine was “unethical” and that the coverage of his visit was in “gross violation” of the Model Code of Conduct.

It is absolutely “unethical and morally incorrect,” party spokesperson Derek O’Brien said in the letter.

This is a gross violation of the Model Code of Conduct,” he said. The prime minister offered prayers at the Himalayan shrine on Sunday morning. Speaking to reporters at the shrine, Modi thanked the Election Commission for granting him permission to visit the shrine at a time when the Model Code of Conduct is in force.

Max Meyer’s Schalke career appears to be finished after he was banned from attending training sessions with the first-team for the rest of the seasonThe German midfielder previously announced that he will be leaving the Bundesliga side at the end of the season as a free agent and had publicly criticised Schalke sporting director Christian Heidel for the way he handled the contract negotiations with him.“I simply did not want to stay with Schalke and work under Heidel. It’s all about this. Lately, it just feels like bullying to me.” said Meyer, according to Sky Sports.Following that interview with the German publication Bild, Schalke has since banned Meyer from attending any further first-team training sessions.“We can’t tolerate such statements and such behaviour,” said Heidel.Merson believes Arsenal should sign Sancho Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho might be the perfect player to play for the Gunners, according to former England international Paul Merson.“We are upset more by his accusations of bullying, which we strongly deny, than his untrue allegations. Schalke 04 have always behaved correctly to Max Meyer.”The 22-year-old has featured regularly for Schalke this season and has largely played the role of a holding midfielder this season.After leaving a training session on Wednesday with a foot injury, Meyer has since not appeared at the club and refused an MRI examination.“My impression for a long time was that Max felt at home here. That’s what he expressed to the coaching staff,” explained Schalke head coach Domenico Tedesco.“I’m disappointed at his personal attacks and can’t fully understand them as they simply don’t add up.”

Julian Draxler has warned his Germany teammates that Kylian Mbappe’s speed can reach up to 300 horsepowerDie Mannschaft head into tonight’s Nations League clash at France in desperate need of a strong result in order to avoid relegation to the B division.One player that must be stopped at all costs is Mbappe, who inspired France to a late comeback 2-2 draw with Iceland last time out.The 19-year-old striker is in superb form right now and Paris Saint-Germain team-mate Draxler knows that Germany cannot let their guard down against him for even a second.“If he has space to get started, it’s almost impossible to catch him with his 300 hp,” Draxler told T-online.PSG ultras sent a warning letter to Neymar Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Brazilian superstar Neymar might play today his first game of the season for Paris Saint-Germain and the team’s ultras have warned him.“His speed and his finishing [are his biggest weapons]. We must not allow him to use either, by defending very compact.”Draxler, whose own PSG future is in doubt at the moment, believes that the squad have responded well under new manager Thomas Tuchel’s methods.“He spreads a good atmosphere, inside and outside. He lets us play attractive football, he has clear ideas and he gives these to us very clearly,” Draxler added.“After losing to Liverpool, he told us very clearly what had gone wrong. Not everything is ‘peace, joy and pancakes’ on the way to success. But that’s also why he does very well and has the team on his side.”
Kilmarnock manager Steve Clarke has issued a warning to supporters not to boo Rangers-bound winger Jones who will stay with the club till the end of the season.Jones upset some supporters with a celebratory tweet after signing a pre-contract that will lead to a four-year deal at Ibrox in the summer.“If the fans boo Jordan then they are booing me as well, because if I select Jordan to play for Kilmarnock then they are criticising my selection,” Clarke told Dailymail.“He has trained great since he came in after the winter break, I look forward to seeing him on the pitch again. I have to pick the best team and if Jordan is part of the best team then he will play.”Jones in his response admits his tweet can’t be retrieved and says he is focused on helping the club presently.Rangers is still behind Celtic: John Hartson Manuel R. Medina – September 3, 2019 According to the former Celtic player, there’s still a massive gap between his ex-club and Rangers in the Scottish Premier League.“The tweet, looking back, I was probably a bit too over-excited, a bit of inexperience at the time but it has happened, there is nothing I can do, I can’t take it back,” he said.“It has happened and the only way I can win them back is by performance on the pitch. I have always tried to give my best for this club, I don’t think my commitment has been in question and knowing that I am leaving in the summer won’t change it.“The Rangers thing now has been out to the side until the summer. I am fully committed to Kilmarnock.“My teammates know I am committed, the gaffer knows I am committed and everyone in the club knows I am committed so it’s my turn to prove to the fans, as I have over two and half years, that I am committed.”
