The description provided by multiple victims matched Serrano's description, so he was placed under arrest.
During the booking process, police said other victims reported that their vehicles were damaged, including one parked in the police station parking lot. Surveillance cameras from the police department were used to identify Serrano and charge him with that vandalism as well.
Police said they are still checking businesses along the route where Serrano was seen for additional video surveillance. They said they don't have a motive and it appears that Serrano chose his victims at random.
