Two Arrests Made In Trump Rally Protests, Suspect In Police Car Vandalism Sought

Screen Shot 2016-06-07 at 11.42.50 AM
image_pdfimage_print

Costa Mesa detectives have made two arrests for the vandalism to the police vehicles that took place Thursday April 28 at the Donald Trump campaign rally at the Pacific Amphitheater at the OC Fair and Event Center and have compiled an image of the suspect they believe damaged a police car that night.

Both of the arrestees were juveniles and Costa Mesa residents.

Click here to read a bulletin regarding the outstanding suspect.

The Trump event was under the jurisdiction of the Orange County Sheriff’s Department.

The Costa Mesa Police Department assisted and was primarily tasked with handling traffic control on the outlying streets surrounding the fairgrounds. Based on news sources approximately 31,000 attended the rally.

After the event ended, event attendees and protesters flooded the intersections along Fair Drive from Fairview Road to Newport Boulevard.

The Costa Mesa Police Department and the Orange County Sheriff Department responded and requested mutual aid assistance from surrounding law enforcement agencies to manage the large crowds leaving the fairgrounds.

The crowd’s participation elevated to the level of civil unrest with incidents of vandalism and assaults occurring.

The Costa Mesa Police Department has proactively investigated the criminal incidents to identify and hold the responsible parties accountable for their actions. The incidents investigated by the CMPD are:

  • Vandalisms – Four vandalism incidents were taken and/or reported by the CMPD. One incident consisted of the vandalism to six CMPD marked patrol vehicles. The other three vandalisms were to motorists who reported damage to their vehicles. There were no investigative leads for those other three incidents.
  • Assaults – Two assault incidents were reported to the CMPD. One incident involved a CMPD officer being hit in the helmet with a rock and the second was of a citizen being hit in the head with a fist. Both assault cases are still being investigated.

In addition to the above investigations, an additional assault incident and a reckless driving incident is being handled by the OCSD. These investigations are ongoing.

The Costa Mesa Police Department continues to vigorously pursue investigative leads to identify and hold the responsible parties accountable for their involvement in the activities which occurred after the Trump rally in Costa Mesa. We will pursue all means to ensure that we recover full restitution for the cost of the city’s damaged property.

Individuals with information and/or who can assist with identifying the outstanding vandalism suspect are asked to contact Detective Peters at 714.754.5198.

1. Soak the filter for your vent hood in hot water and Borax to make it shine again.

A soak in hot water and a heavy dose of Dawn dish soap would probably work pretty well, too. Here’s the full tutorial.

Shine up greasy grates on your stove by soaking them overnight with a little ammonia.

No scrubbing required. Also, you shouldn’t mix ammonia with other cleaners. Here’s the full tutorial, which you should definitely read first if you want to try this.

4. Coat the inside of your oven with a mixture of baking soda, water, and dish soap, then let it sit for at least 15 minutes.

Coat the inside of your oven with a mixture of baking soda, water, and dish soap, then let it sit for at least 15 minutes.

This tutorial only spot cleans the oven, but you could probably coat the inside of your entire oven (except the fabric gasket) with the mixture if it’s dirty all over.

5. Then give your oven racks a bath in dish soap, dryer sheets (yup!), and hot water.

Then give your oven racks a bath in dish soap, dryer sheets (yup!), and hot water.

You have to let them soak overnight (or during the day for six to eight hours). Here’s the full tutorial.

6. And if you really hate cleaning your oven, consider buying an oven liner or keeping an old baking sheet on a rack at the lowest setting.

And if you really hate cleaning your oven, consider buying an oven liner or keeping an old baking sheet on a rack at the lowest setting.

You can get this oven liner here for $19.99. If you decide to go the baking sheet route, make sure it’s on an oven rack a couple of inches from the bottom of the oven, so it doesn’t mess up your baking temperatures and times. And also — don’t line the bottom of your oven with foil, because it could mess up your oven.

7. Combat sticky kitchen dust by wiping it with cooking oil or mineral oil.

Combat sticky kitchen dust by wiping it with cooking oil or mineral oil.

No need to smear globs of it around — just a little bit of oil on a paper towel will do. Then use a little dish soap and warm water to wipe off the oil. Here’s the full tutorial.

8. Then use a mixture of hydrogen peroxide and baking soda to scrub away stubborn stains on your cooktop.

Here’s the full tutorial, which works for glass cooktops, too.

While you're at it, toss in any dirty kitchen towels and rugs, too.

Unless of course you need to wash them in a separate load, in which case, just put them in the laundry basket. Get these funny towels for $9.99 here.

12. If you have blinds, use this tongs hack to get them clean in a jiffy.

If you have blinds, use this tongs hack to get them clean in a jiffy.

A microfiber cloth works better than, say, an old sock, because it picks up more dust instead of rubbing it around or brushing it off. Here’s the full tutorial.

13. Then clean your windows with your favorite glass cleaner.

Then clean your windows with your favorite glass cleaner.

This DIY recipe uses dish soap and Jet-Dry (a rinse aid you probably put in your dish washer every once in a while).

If you a have a separate sprayer off to the side, use this trick on it, too. Then if your faucet is stainless steel or chrome, polish it up with Pledge (like you did your fridge).Here’s the full tutorial, plus a recommendation for which cleaner to use.

16. If you have a garbage disposal, clean it out with an old toothbrush, making sure to get underneath the splash guard.

Hot water and soap ftw. You should also wipe down the inside parts of your fridge and freezer that don’t come out. Get the full fridge-cleaning tutorial at Martha Stewart. If your fridge still smells funny even after washing it thoroughly, try leaving someactivated charcoal inside of it for a few days. (It absorbs odors much better than baking soda does.)

22. Then store everything in your fridge according to which areas in your fridge are the coldest.

23. And consider grouping pantry foods in easy-grab bins.

And consider grouping pantry foods in easy-grab bins.

You don’t have to go as far as decanting your flour into a jar (although it’s totally respectable if you’d like to), but keeping all of your various pantry necessities in easy-grab bins could make your life just a little simpler. You’ll always be able to find what you’re looking for, you’ll always know what you’re about to run out of, and you’ll be able to put groceries away in no time. Read more here.

24. Dust and wipe down the top of your counters and fridge, then lay down paper grocery bags to catch dust in the future.

Dust and wipe down the top of your counters and fridge, then lay down paper grocery bags to catch dust in the future.

Then the next time you deep clean your kitchen, you can recycle these bags and replace them. Here’s the full tutorial. You probably want to do this part before you start cleaning your cabinets, fridge, and floor, because you don’t want dust to fall from the top of the cabinets onto your freshly cleaned surfaces.

25. If you have a stainless steel fridge or other appliances, polish them with Pledge.

If you have a stainless steel fridge or other appliances, polish them with Pledge.

Wipe off any dried-on gunk with a damp sponge first, though. Here’s the tutorial.

26. Clean your countertops and backsplash with a cleaner that works for whatever materials are in your kitchen.

Clean your countertops and backsplash with a cleaner that works for whatever materials are in your kitchen.

  • For granite countertops this homemade cleaner works well, and you’ll want to make sure to ~avoid~ vinegar, as it could dull your finish or etch the stone (or follow your manufacturer’s instructions).
  • For tile, laminate, and acrylic (Corian) countertops a mixture of hot water, dish soap, and vinegar will do the trick. Just make sure to wipe down with a clean wet cloth to avoid any residue.
  • For marble countertops, nonabrasive dish soap and water does the trick, or again, follow your manufacturer’s instructions.

27. Make cleaning your wooden cabinets (and other wood in your kitchen) easy with Murphy’s Oil Soap.

Make cleaning your wooden cabinets (and other wood in your kitchen) easy with Murphy's Oil Soap.

Erika Tracey / thekitchn.com

And no, they didn’t pay me to say that — it’s genuinely what I use and recommend, and so does the writer of this tutorial. You can also use it to clean the inside of your cabinets and your shelves, if they’re also wood.

28. Then consider lining your drawers and cabinets with non-adhesive liners to make them easy to clean in the future.

Then consider lining your drawers and cabinets with non-adhesive liners to make them easy to clean in the future.

It also protects your drawers from the wear and tear of everyday use, and will keep your stuff from sliding around. This kind doesn’t require any measuring or cutting, if lining every shelf in your kitchen sounds too daunting.

29. Now (finally), sweep and mop your floors.

Now (finally), sweep and mop your floors.

Here’s a recipe for a homemade cleaner for wood floors that would also work well on tile. Avoid any DIY cleaning recipes with dish soap in them, because those will make your floor sticky and could attract dirt unless you completely rinse off all of the soap.

YAY! You’re done! You deserve cookies.

J. Kenji López-Alt / seriouseats.com

Here’s the best pre-made dough, according to Serious Eats, because you probably have zero energy left for baking after that cleaning extravaganza. And here’s how to heat vanilla so your house smells like cookies if you really don’t feel up to dealing with dough.
