From the Eureka Police Department:


On March 8, 2019 at approximately 11:19 PM, an officer of the Eureka Police Department was conducting a routine patrol check of the Burre Center shopping center, when he observed a subject crouched down behind a small brick planter box style wall.

The officer stopped and contacted the subject, identified as Christopher Allen Guido (47 years old of Eureka). Upon contacting Guido, the officer saw that the wall was heavily covered in spray paint. The paint was still tacky to the touch. Guido was found to be in possession of multiple cans of spray paint and had paint residue about his person. The spray paint and residue was consistent with that used to deface the wall.

Based on the totality of the circumstances, Guido was taken into custody for vandalism and booked into the Humboldt County Correctional Facility.
