San Diego Minutemen Founder has been Raided
NORTH COUNTY ---- San Diego police served search warrants to the homes of San Diego Minutemen founder Jeff Schwilk and migrant camp critic Julie Adams Wednesday morning as part of the investigation into vandalism at migrant camps in Rancho Penasquitos last January, authorities said.
Vandals tore into the camps over the weekend of Jan. 27 and 28, destroying clothing, sleeping bags, jackets and other belongings, San Diego police spokeswoman Monica Munoz said.
According to police, a migrant worker who lives in one of the camps told them that four men and two women were allegedly involved in the vandalism.
An investigation into the case is ongoing and no arrests have been made, Munoz said.
Police also served a search warrant last month to former Minutemen spokeswoman Christie Czajkowski. The search resulted in the confiscation of a personal computer, video camera and video tapes.
Anyone with information in the case is asked to call the San Diego Police Northeastern Division at (858) 538-8000 or Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-TIPS. Crime Stoppers offers up to a $1,000 reward for information leading to arrests and callers may remain anonymous.
