Laguna Beach police are investigating a disgusting case of vandalism against the home of City Manager Shohreh Dupuis.
On Thursday at around 7:30 a.m., authorities responded to Dupuis’ home on 3rd Avenue and discovered feces or sewage smeared on the outdoor stairs, mailbox, planters and walkway.
“This is a shocking personal attack on our City Manager at her residence,” said Laguna Beach Mayor Bob Whalen in a press release. “It is criminal conduct that will be investigated immediately and thoroughly. I strongly urge anyone with any information regarding this crime to contact our Police Department. I truly hope that we will find the perpetrator or perpetrators of this crime and bring them to justice. As a City, we will not tolerate any acts to intimidate or harm any city employee or appointed or elected official. Our City Manager is a dedicated and hard-working person who only wants the best for our residents and the City. Her job is hard enough without the added stress and anxiety that this type of attack creates. She doesn’t deserve this disrespect, and I fully expect our community to rally around her.”
The Laguna Beach Police Department is asking anyone with information to come forward. Tips can be phoned in at (949) 497-0701.
