At around 12:08 p.m. deputies responded to the Cabazon Public Library regarding a burglary alarm. Deputies arrived to find several smashed windows to the library. On video surveillance, a male suspect was seen throwing rocks through the 4’X10’ double glass front windows. Two additional large double glass windows were also smashed on the south side of the library with rocks.
