The Family That Sprays Together, Stays Together

On Avalon Street in Echo Park, Victoria Villicano is known as a devoted mother who is often seen behind the wheel of her SUV, driving her two teenage sons to stores and sporting events.

But Los Angeles Police Department detectives say the 42-year-old woman also drove a five-member tagging crew, including her two children, around Silver Lake and Echo Park, stopping long enough for the group to jump out and vandalize.

So says the L.A. Times this morning. Not the usual sort of fare for The Inn. But that headline was crying out to be used. The Press Telegram didn't use it. The Times wouldn't use it. So it was up to me.

(Even though. . .they probably aren't together. I'm guessing separate sections of the city jail facility down at Parker Center.)
