Trump-Loving Grandmother Outs Alleged Portland ‘Bomber’ Grandson

By  | 

A 69-year-old Trump-supporting grandmother outed her grandson as the suspect who allegedly threw a makeshift bomb outside a Portland, Oregon, federal courthouse Tuesday.

The New York Post reported that Karla Fox recognized the alleged bomber as her grandson, Gabriel “Rico” Agard-Berryhill.

In the hours after the attack, social media users sifted through videos showing a slim man wearing an olive-colored vest with the word “ICONS” printed on it, throwing an item over the fence at the Mark O. Hatfield Courthouse.

Within seconds, there’s an explosion that covers the courthouse’s front door in flames. The suspect picks something up from the group and slips away from the camera’s view.

Fox immediately recognized her grandson because she gifted him the vest.

“I bought the vest for him after he found one online after getting hit with rubber bullets the night before at the protest,” Fox told the Post. (She even left a positive review on clothing site Hibbett: “I got this for my grandson who’s a protester downtown, he uses it every night and says it does the job.”)

Agard-Berryhill told the Post via text message Thursday that he admitted misguided involvement, but did not outright say he was the bomber.

“The device I’ve been accused of allegedly throwing was allegedly given to me by an unknown [protester] with full face coverings,” he wrote. “I was allegedly told that it was a strobe firework that wouldn’t damage the building or harm anyone around it.”

Later that evening, Agard-Berryhill spoke with his probation officer and turned himself in. U.S. Marshals arrested him and booked him into the Multnomah County Detention Center.

Authorities charged him with felony arson, and he faces at least five years behind bars if convicted. He was released without bail.

The alleged bomb-throwing shocked Fox, a conservative who supports President Donald Trump and claimed that she did not know her grandson’s politics.

Fox says her grandson told her last week that he was peacefully protesting and “protecting a girl.”

“I believed all his stories,” Fox says. “He said he was just hanging out at Riot Ribs [an anarchist food co-op] and doing peaceful things.”

Fox said her grandson is on probation for a felony conviction from when he was a minor. She said he spent two years at Rogue Valley Youth Correctional Facility in southern Oregon and spoke about changing his life for the better and getting a job at Amazon.

    I believe that her grandson did know what he was throwing. These rioters and protesters have got to stop with this crap. They’re hurting our economy and destroying businesses. Seems like they hate America. Well if they hate it this much, then they should leave. Take these Democrats with them. Sick of all this violence.
    God Bless America and President Trump!!! 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸 Trump 2020!!🇺🇸🇺🇸

      I tend to believe as well he didn’t know what he was throwing. That has been Antifa’s M-O to get “peaceful protestors” to do their dirty work. It doesn’t excuse his throwing the “unknown object” over the fence. He should still be prosecuted as a reminder to other demonstrators. If you want to continue “peacefully protesting” then stop acting like a rioter. Don’t let Antifa antagonist convince you into breaking the law.

    Give Gramma a GOLD STAR! All of these idiot’s need to be prosecuted to the MAX. If there’s no real consequences like a fine etc. It Will get paid by people like Oprah or BLM etc. They need to be slapped with felonies & jail. This moron didn’t learn from his prior issues. Maybe others will learn why antifa etc. needs stupid people to do the dirty work. I think they ALL should get on a SLOW boat to CHINA & take ALL the democrats with! & ohh ya take these “peaceful protesters” with!”America LOVE it or leave it” TRUMP 2020 !🗽🇺🇸
