April 8, 2024 -- LA County prosecutors on Monday announced vandalism charges against a woman who threw bricks at a dozen vehicles in Santa Monica and Los Angeles.

The incidents took place between February 21 and March 29, according to the LA County District Attorney's office.

Lisa Jones, 30, of Los Angeles, was charged with 11 felony counts and one misdemeanor count of vandalism of $400 or more in damage or destruction of property.

Jones allegedly randomly vandalized the parked and unoccupied vehicles by throwing bricks at them, according to the DA's office.

“The reckless and destructive behavior exhibited by Ms. Jones demonstrates a flagrant disregard for the law and a lack of respect for other peoples’ property,” said District Attorney George Gascón.

Surveillence video posted on the internet -- which has gone national -- shows the suspect approaching a white Porsche parked on Bernard Avenue in Venice on March 28.

The suspect, a Black female, tosses a brick with both hands at the car's windshield, then circles the car and picks it up.

She then returns with the brick to a white SUV and drives away.

Jones also has been tied to similar incidents that took place in Burbank and Culver City, according to NBC 4.

Jones pleaded not guilty during her arraignment Friday at the Airport Courthouse, the DA's office said. Her preliminary hearing is set for April 19.

Prosecutors recommended that Jones be held on $600,000 bail but said the court set her bail at $120,000.

If convicted as charged, Jones will face a maximum sentence of nine years and eight months in prison, according to the DA's office.

The case is being investigated by the Los Angeles and Santa Monica police departments.
