Brandon N. McGlover, 32, of Temecula was arrested Wednesday afternoon on suspicion of setting the Cranston Fire, which has destroyed eight homes and has burned 4,700 acres near Idyllwild.
McGlover has been transported to Cois Byrd Detention Center in Murrieta and booked on felony arson charges. He remains jailed on $1 million bail.
According to a U.S. Forest Service-San Bernardino National Forest news release, CAL FIRE investigators, "determined a suspect description and issued a crime bulletin to other local law enforcement agencies. Based on the crime bulletin issued, the Hemet/San Jacinto Valley Gang Task Force located and detained McGlover."
Lieutenant Eric Dickson of the Hemet Police Department said a member of the Gang Task Force just happened to be working at the time and spot the vehicle after CAL FIRE sent out a description of the suspects car. He did not know how CAL FIRE identified the suspect nor how the cause of the fire arson was determined.
According to Riverside County court records, McGlover was cited twice for driving infractions in the past year, once in December 2017 and a second time in June 2018.
Someone please shoot this animal in the head.
Someone who actually deserves a good old fashioned Soweto Township style necklacing.
Kudos to Law Enforcement; that was a FAST capture!
Now, shoot him where he stands...
There should be an instant burning at the stake for these guys.
Unless there is an obvious connection that factor should not be relevant.
In THIS case, YES. Demographics of Idyllwild, CA is 90% white, 1% black.
A week of cruel or unusual punishment first.
“I heard that a witness spotted this demon throwing ROAD FLARES FROM HIS VEHICLE.”
I saw that on the local news. People managed to put out a couple of the fires but I guess he tossed out a number of flares and things quickly got out of control.
The Cops were probably able to check on the cell phones in the area at the time. That, plus with the witnesses description, they were able to zero in on the suspect.
Road Flare Violence. Questions must be asked.
Were these regular Road Flares or Assault Road Flares?
Should someone be allowed to purchase more than one Road Flare a Month?
Why does anyone need to own Road Flares?
Are black Road Flares more dangerous than any other color Road Flares?
Do we need to update the Road Flare Background Check System to catch people like this?
Should we raise the Legal Age to purchase Road Flares from it’s current... OMG, there isn’t a Legal Minimum Age to be able to buy Road Flares, we’re all gonna die!
Either way, good job!
Love your tagline. :)
I've hiked all over Mt. San Jacinto.
Hiked a lot of the PCT around there.............
