The Californian was released the day after an attempted arson of the Republican Party headquarters and the theft of a “Trump” political flag
Haters of the Republican party and, in particular, Donald Trump again made a daring political raid. A man from Eureka, February 8th, threw stones at the Republican Party of Humboldt headquarters and stole a political flag. Later, during the detention, a combustible mixture was also seized from him, which, presumably, was to start a fire.
According to eyewitnesses, on an early Saturday morning, a man who was identified as 43-year-old Michael Valls began breaking windows, as soon as he noticed there were witnesses, he tried to escape by bicycle.
Arriving at the scene, police began chasing the suspect and a few minutes later arrested the fugitive. According to police reports, Valls resisted the detention, which was later added to the list of charges, including attempted arson and vandalism, theft and perjury.
During the search, EPD officers found a flag from the suspect that corresponded to what was stolen from headquarters, and the political marks of another presidential candidate Bernie Sanders was on the bike.
Despite such an impressive list of crimes and clear signs of a political motive for committing crimes, Michael Valls posted a $ 25,000 bond the next day and left the Humboldt County Correctional Facility.
