On July 1, 2018, at about 4:34 a.m., officers responded to a business at the foot of F Street for the report of a burglary alarm activation. The owner of the business had also called and reported that he could see a male suspect inside the business from his remote video surveillance system.

Officers arrived on scene within minutes, but the male suspect had already fled with miscellaneous stolen items. Based on the video surveillance, the male suspect was described as wearing a top hat and leather jacket with distinct stitching on the shoulders. Officers checked the area but were unable to locate the suspect.

On July 2, 2018, at about 3:10 a.m., an officer with the Eureka Police Department conducted a proactive field interview with a male at the 1700 block of Broadway. The male was wearing a top hat and leather jacket matching the description from the burglary surveillance. The male was identified as 59 year old Christian Bradford and determined to be the suspect from the burglary.  

Bradford was arrested and booked into the Humboldt County Correctional Facility for burglary and probation violation.
