Concord Man Denied Bail in Vandalism Case
April 29, 2024

A Concord man accused of keying the cars of 11 state Republican party members was denied bail Monday after prosecutors argued that he presented a safety threat to himself and others.

When police searched Dunlap’s van and South Spring Street residence, they found a bag with multiple sets of latex gloves and flex cuffs, a billy club, a medieval mace, and dark clothing and face masks, according to an affidavit.

Police also found a ‘manifesto/suicide note’ that, in addition to an intention to end his own life, stated in part, ‘I truly despise all humanity and all the filth we have accepted as acceptable.’

Eight firearms, including an AR-15, were also found in the home, according to Deputy Chief John Thomas.
