- Andres Castaneda, 19 // Gabriella Fritz, 20
Ahead of a visit to an immigration detention center on Thursday, First Lady Melania Trump was seen wearing a jacket that had "I Really Don't Care. Do U?" written on the back.
On Friday morning, Mission San Jose and Mission San Juan were both found with the phrase graffitied onto its walls. At Mission San Jose, the message was attributed to an "MT," an obvious nod to the First Lady.
Lauren Gurniewicz, the chief of interpretation at the San Antonio Missions National Historical Park, said Friday that the property has security cameras.

Almost as soon as the message appeared, major developments came after the footage was released. Andres Castaneda, 19, turned himself into police on Saturday and also gave the name of his accomplice, Gabriella Fritz, 20. According to online jail records, Fritz was taken into custody on Sunday.
The vandals are both facing a single graffiti charge, though the arrest document only refers to the graffiti at Mission San Juan. The charge is classified as a state jail felony since the mission is a place of worship as well as a public monument. According to KSAT, the arrest affidavit doesn't mention a motive.
Three people were seen in the security footage, so police say they are still searching for a third suspect.
