Key Facts

The Capitol Police said in a statement they arrested Donald Craighead of Oceanside, California for possession of prohibited weapons, specifically a bayonet and a machete.

The weapons were found at midnight in a pickup truck with “a swastika and other white supremacist symbols painted on it,” and an American flag instead of a license plate, the statement said

Photos posted by the Capitol Police show the truck has multiple swastikas drawn on the interior and exterior of the truck, in addition to several ancient runic symbols commonly used by white supremacist groups.

Craighead “said he was ‘on patrol’,” and “began talking about white supremacist ideology and other rhetoric pertaining to white supremacy,” before he was arrested, the statement said.
