This evening, between 70 and 75 participants gathered in front of the Bayshore Mall for an anti crime rally sponsored by Operation Safe Streets.

Meanwhile, ironically, across the street, one man accidentally staged his own pro crime protest by trying to break into a car by smashing its window.

Officers from the Eureka Police Department took exception to his behavior. A foot pursuit ensued and, according to Captain Steve Watson, eventually, the suspect, Brandon Wilks was arrested for “resisting arrest and being under the influence of drugs.”
