An Everett man is being held in the Snohomish County Jail on $25,000.00 bail after allegedly doing thousands of dollars in damage to cars parked beneath his building in downtown Everett.

Yesterday afternoon Everett Police were called to the 3000 block of Lombard to a report of a man intentionally throwing cans of food from his eighth floor window down onto cars below. According to probable cause papers an arriving officer found cans of tuna and refried beans in the street and fresh damage to a late model Dodge Challenger. The owner of the car told police the damage was in excess of $5000.00.

Employees and residents of the building told police this is not the first time the 59-year-old man had thrown cans of food at the cars below. The man was reportedly upset about the amount of noise made at shift change by workers in the area.

The officer wrote in his report that the man yelled down to officers that it would take a SWAT Team to get him out of his apartment. He also reportedly yelled through his door at officers outside that he would shoot anyone who came through his door. Everett Police obtained a search warrant and just before 10 PM (Thursday night) forcibly entered the apartment and took the man into custody.

An Everett District Court Pro-tem judge found probable cause for the man to be held for felony malicious mischief. He set bail at $25,000.00 and also ordered a mental health evaluation on the man who has a past record of seven felonies and more than 50 misdemeanors.
