Arrest made in case of vandalism at Delaware Law Enforcement Memorial

Dover Police Dept.

Police arrest a Camden man in connection to damage done to Delaware Law Enforcement Memorial at Legislative Mall.

Dover Police say 42 year-old Kyle Bullock was charged with one count of felony criminal mischief over $5,000.

Police reported Friday that the neck of the kneeling officer statue was damaged.  An axe was found at the scene, along with two urine-soaked State of Delaware flags laid in front of the statue, according to authorities.

Police say Bullock’s cell phone was also found at the scene after officers arrived around 5:30 a.m. They say Bullock returned to the area asking if officers if they had seen a cell phone. He claimed he lost it in the area while participating in prior protest activity.

Dover police say Bullock quickly left the scene and officers obtained warrants for his arrest. Delaware State Police took him into custody at his home without incident.

Police say Bullock had earlier become disorderly towards law enforcement and civilians in the area of protests and at the Dover Police Department. But police say he was not part of an organized group that has protested since May 31, noting several protest members told law enforcement during their demonstrations that Bullock was not with them.

Bullock was committed to Sussex Correctional Institution in Georgetown on $5,100 cash bond.
