Knives, a machete, and a bayonet were found in the car of Donald Craighead from California.
Capitol police said that on Monday night, a California resident was detained near the headquarters of the Democratic National Committee in Washington, where several knives, a bayonet, and a machete were found in his car.
According to the patrolmen, around midnight, they noticed a truck with a swastika and other symbols of the ideology of white supremacy. Instead of a license plate on the car, there was an image of the American flag.
In Washington, it is forbidden to carry bayonets and machetes. According to police, the detainee, 44-year-old Donald Craighead from Oceanside, California, said he was “patrolling” the neighborhood. Craighead was charged with possession of a prohibited weapon.
The police are still investigating.
