Murrieta, Riverside County — A Southern California jury on Monday convicted a man of attempted murder in a string of bizarre attacks on police that included improvised booby traps and the firing of a World War II-era bazooka at a police station.

Nicholas John Smit, 41, of San Jacinto, was found guilty of four counts of attempted murder of a police officer, all of them for orchestrating attacks against the same Hemet police detective who had arrested him on a drug charge, Riverside County district attorney’s spokesman John Hall said.

In one instance, natural gas was rerouted into the office of a gang task force and rigged to explode. In the bazooka attack, a training rocket was fired from the roof of a nearby market and started a small fire.
