Man Arrested For Arson, Throwing Molotov Cocktails At California Republican Women’s Organization Building


A California man was arrested and charged with arson and “igniting a destructive device with the intent to destroy property” on Thursday for a May attack on the East Valley Republican Women Federated building in La Quinta, California.

The District Attorney’s office in the County of Riverside announced the arrest of the suspect, Carlos Espriu, by the Riverside County Gang Impact Team and the DA’s Special Activity Unit, and stated that he is being held at a Riverside, CA detention center on a $1 million bail. Espriu is also facing federal charges after a criminal complaint by the U.S. Attorney’s Office mentioned his name.

The fire on May 31 was determined to be “intentionally set and caused by an incendiary device.” According to reports, “investigators found three glass bottles containing ignitable liquid inside the building – one bottle that was broken and burned, the other two still intact.” CAL FIRE firefighters were called to the scene shortly after 1:30 a.m.
