If you haven’t already, read this: Battle of Berkeley Bike Lock Bandit Unmasked.
It seems that the citizen vigilantism paid off this time, as the internet detectives were correct about the “bike lock bandit”, or at least it seems they were.
Eric Clanton has been arrested for the suspected assault of three people with a deadly weapon causing great bodily injury. Clanton is being held at Berkeley jail with a bail of $200,000.
These are very serious charges, and they should be seeing the great damage that the victims suffered.
Because of the seriousness of the assault, homicide detectives actually handled the case. I’m sure much browsing of /pol/ was the key aspect of this investigation; as /pol/ brought all this to light.
