ENCINITAS —  A 62-year-old woman was arrested earlier this week after someone used black spray paint to deface about 55 campaign signs in support of an Encinitas City Council candidate. The Sheriff's Department said it arrested Encinitas resident Teresa Conkey on Monday on felony suspicion of vandalism. The signs were from the campaign of Dan Vaughn, one of four candidates for the council's District 4 seat in the Nov. 8 election.Conkey posted $20,000 bail after her arrest. She could not be immediately reached for comment, and it was unclear if she had an attorney.
