UPDATED – Saturday, June 13 – 9am – Arrest made in the vandalism of the Law Enforcement Memorial in Dover.  Police arrested 42 year old Kyle Bullock, of Camden, after they found a cell phone at the scene.  While police were there Bullock returned looking for his phone – saying he’d lost it during a prior protest.  Police say Bullock had been seen during a protest – and was disorderly towards law enforcement and others he encountered.  However he was not part of the group of organized protesters, who actually asked police to be aware of him.  Bullock is being held at SCI in default of a cash bond.
