A California Leftist – no doubt with “mental issues” – has tried to burn down the Eureka Republican headquarters:
On Saturday Feb. 8, at about 4:53 a.m., officers with the Eureka Police Department responded to the office on 5th Street for the report of a man smashing the windows. The witness gave a description of the suspect and said he was last seen riding a bicycle toward the bay.
Officers quickly arrived on scene and saw the man on the Boardwalk. They said the suspect fled from them on the bike, but after a short pursuit he was detained. According to the EPD, the suspect was found to be in possession of a “Trump” political flag. His bicycle had a “Bernie” political sticker prominently displayed, police said.
Police said they found the man, later identified as 43-year-old Michael Valls of Eureka, riding his bike near the foot of D Street. Police said Valls tried to flee from officers but was ultimately taken into custody after a brief struggle. He was found to be in possession of items linking him to the vandalism on 5th Street, police said.
