Authorities say he had prior arrests for narcotics-related offenses. Diaz-Villatoro is currently being held on $150,000 bail after a bail enhancement obtained by detectives, the release said.

His original bail was $ .01 but was increased due to “dangers posed to the community by his actions.”

KRON4 reached out to the Marin County Sheriff’s Office for a mugshot of Diaz-Villatoro. The request was denied.
