Keith Cav­a­lier, 28, of Gulf­port told po­lice that he in­ten­tion­ally crashed his Toy­ota pickup into the east side of the Har­ri­son County court­house just be­fore dawn Satur­day be­cause it was the best way to let them know his drug para­pher­na­lia had been stolen, a Po­lice Depart­ment news re­lease says.

Po­lice charged Cav­a­lier with firstof­fense DUI and ma­li­cious mis­chief be­cause dam­age to the build­ing was more than $1,000, the news re­lease says.

Har­ri­son County Jus­tice Court Judge Bran­don Lad­ner set Cav­a­lier’s bond at $25,000. He was be­ing held in the Har­ri­son County Adult De­ten­tion Cen­ter.

Har­ri­son County spokesman Jeff Clark does not ex­pect an of­fi­cial es­ti­mate of dam­ages un­til Tues­day. The county is closed Mon­day for Vet­er­ans Day.
