Judge denies bond for man who had weapons in swastika-tagged pickup parked near DNC headquarters

A judge Tuesday ordered a California man to be held without bond, a day after he was arrested near the Democratic National Committee Headquarters in Washington, D.C., where police say they found weapons in a pickup truck displaying white supremacist symbols. Court documents showed the man, 44-year-old Donald Craighead of Oceanside, California, making a series of racist, bigoted and otherwise bizarre comments to law enforcement officers before and after his arrest.

“Specifically, the defendant advised that prior to being stopped by the police, he was ‘patrolling’ for individuals that were trying to change his magnetic frequency, and the gay families behind the September 11th attack that have stalked him for years,” the agents wrote.

Craighead then asked one of the officers why he was being pulled over “when there are Brown people hurting white people,” according to the affidavit. Craighead used homophobic slurs in conversation with the officers. He was wearing a T-shirt associated with the far-right “boogaloo movement,” which advocates for a second Civil War, the affidavit said. Craighead nevertheless claimed no association with any extremist group.

A search of the truck uncovered “a box containing duck bones” and clippings of hair apparently belonging to Craighead, the interview summary stated. Police also found a four small silver cans taped together that contained coins and playing dice, as well as what appeared to be dirt. In the door panel was a cardboard box with the word “bazooka” written on it, containing small glass containers of orange paint. The agents also retrieved a journal hidden in the engine block, which included names, phone numbers, addresses and references to the “MK-Ultra Machine.” MK-ULTRA was an experimental, Cold War-era CIA program focused on mind control.

Asked about the White supremacist symbols on his truck — which also included an Odin’s cross and Norse runes, the affidavit said — Craighead allegedly told the agents he did not necessarily subscribe to Nazi ideology. “However,” authorities wrote, “he agreed with having the option of genocide for a certain group of people if they were to become brainwashed.”
