1 arrested after hours-long barricade

VENTURA COUNTY – An hours-long barricade Saturday of a man on the roof of a condominium near the Ventura County line and Malibu ended with his arrest, authorities said.

The 28-year-old, who did not have a known address, first showed up at a Ventura County fire station in the 11000 block Pacific Coast Highway making odd statements and then headed to a nearby gated condo complex around 9 a.m., according to Ventura County Sheriff's Capt. Trina Newman.

The man somehow got up to the roof of one of the structures where he stayed until about 2 p.m. when he was taken into custody and booked into Ventura County jail, Newman said.

The 28-year-old was arrested on suspicion of three counts of felony vandalism: resisting arrest: two counts of assault with a deadly weapon, namely roof tiles; forgery and attempted burglary, according to jail records.

He is being held on $60,000 bail and is scheduled to appear in Ventura County Superior Court Tuesday at 1:30 p.m., jail records show.
