Louis Murrillo and Zane Johnides were able to distinguish themselves this week in both their lack of values and intellect. The two men were busy vandalizing a historical military structure at Battery Yates, a historic military building along the water at Fort Baker, just north of the Golden Gate Bridge when they were spotted by park officers. The two attempted to escape by climbing over the cliff where they promptly got stuck — triggering a massive rescue effort including the lifting of one of the men of the cliff face with a helicopter.
Fort Baker is a beautiful 335 acre facility built in 1905. I love the area and will be taking my family to see if during a planned visit to San Francisco this summer. While most of us just love to walk around the beautiful grounds, Murrillo and Johnides allegedly saw it as an opportunity to do some damage and leave their mark on the historical site.
The rescue included parks rangers, Southern Marin Fire Department officers, a CHP helicopter and a Coast Guard boat. All to save two men who considered it fun to vandalize a historic site.
Both now face vandalism-related charges.
