Man arrested for alleged vandalism, trespassing

A 61-year-old man with an unknown city of residence — Christopher Herbert Craft — is in custody for vandalism and trespassing at McDonald’s last week.

According to a Facebook post on the City of Susanville’s Administration page, officers responded to McDonalds on Main Street in Susanville about 4:40 a.m. Friday, Aug. 5, to a report of vandalism in progress.

According to the post, “SPD Officers and deputies from the Lassen County Sheriff’s Office could hear banging coming from the roof. Once they made their way to the roof access ladder, they observed broken PVC piping, a broken-out drive through window and other damage to the business. Officer’s gave numerous commands for the person on the roof to come down with negative results.

“Officers and deputies made access onto the roof and began searching. While searching the rooftop, damage was observed to most of the air conditioning units and broken cinder blocks which appeared to have been used to cause the damage.”

Craft was found hiding under one of the damaged air conditioning units and arrested for felony vandalism (damage more than $400) and misdemeanor trespassing and booked into the Lassen County Jail.
