Leftist Thug Arrested for Bombing Fed Building, Outed to Cops by Pro-Trump Grandma
Rioter recognised by vest his grandmother bought for him
A 69-year-old Trump-supporting grandmother outed her grandson to police after recognizing him when he reportedly threw an explosive device at the Mark O. Hatfield Federal Courthouse in Portland.
Karla Fox said she recognized her grandson, 18-year-old Gabriel Agard-Berryhill, by the vest she bought for him which he was wearing at the time of the incident, the New York Post reported.
"In the hours after the IED attack, social-media users analyzed videos showing a slim male, wearing a distinctive olive vest with the word ‘ICONS’ printed on it, throwing something over the fence at the Mark O. Hatfield Courthouse,” the New York Post added.
“Seconds later, a large explosion erupts, covering the front door in flames.
"The man picks up something off the ground and sprints off-camera.”
Fox said she had "bought the vest for him after he found one online after getting hit with rubber bullets the night before at the protest.”
"This is my only grandson, I love him to death, and didn't know he was going to do such a bad thing, I had been posting several things about the Antifa and BLM, he knows I am against those riots bigtime...he chose his poison,' she tweeted, from the username @Trumpsgirl2020," Fox tweeted.

Agard-Berryhill was identified by his vest; his grandmother's tweet; and the review of the vest she posted online.
"I got this for my grandson who's a protestor downtown, he uses it every night and says its does the job," she wrote.
"I bought the vest for him after he found one online after getting hit with rubber bullets the night before at the protest," she said.
Fox said her grandson was currently on probation for a felony conviction when he was a minor.
"I believed all his stories," Fox said.
"He said he was just hanging out at Riot Ribs [an anarchist food co-op] and doing peaceful things."
"I don't condone any of this. I am amazed at all of these events."
Agard-Berryhill asked his grandmother to delete the photo of him wearing the vest, and to remove her comment about the purchase.
President Donald Trump strongly condemned the riots in Portland.
“Homeland Security is not leaving Portland until local police complete cleanup of Anarchists and Agitators!” Trump tweeted.

Acting DHS Secretary Chad Wolf later announced the government had devised a plan to work with local law enforcement officials to quell the violence.
“That plan includes a robust presence of Oregon State Police in downtown Portland,” Wolf said in a statement.
“State and local law enforcement will begin securing properties and streets, especially those surrounding federal properties, that have been under nightly attack for the past two months."
