A white, 40 year old woman was discovered deceased in the early hours of Sunday morning, in the 600 block of Santa Monica Beach, with what appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound. A suicide note was found at the scene. Santa Monica Police stated that no foul play was suspected.
The Family Car
Thursday, July 31, 8:27 a.m. Officers were driving around the Lincoln Boulevard and Ocean Park area when they were flagged down by citizens who told them that there had been an altercation occurring in a white convertible Mercedes Benz. These citizens pointed the car out to the cops, who then followed the vehicle. The officers observed that the driver was leaning over the passenger seat and hitting the person seated in the rear passenger area. The officers decided, at that point, to stop this mobile fracas. Inside this Benz they discovered a female driver, a male passenger, and a male juvenile in the back. It transpired that the driver and passenger were married, and the kid was their son. The officers also discovered that a family dispute had taken place, and the culprit appeared to be the wife (aged 46), who had been driving and hitting both the husband and the kid (unilateral road rage?) whilst doing so. She was arrested and transported to the Santa Monica Jail, and booked for battery on a spouse, and child endangerment.
Where Are You From?
Friday, July 31, 7:18 p.m. Officers received a report of a fight taking place at the Ralph’s supermarket located in the 1600 block of Cloverfield Boulevard, so they sped there to get the low-down, and this is what had happened: A man had entered the store, walked up to an employee and enquired where the employee was from (huh?). The employee elected to not respond to this question, and so this guy left the store, only to return a short time later. The guy then went to the employee lounge area, and again confronted this employee (he really wanted to know where the employee was from!). At that point they both began fighting, but other Ralph’s employees intervened, and the suspect was detained until the cops arrived. This guy, a male Latino aged 21, was taken off to jail, and booked for threatening a crime with the intent to terrorize.
Friday, July 31, 12:28 p.m. Officers were patrolling the area of the 1300 block of Pico Boulevard when they noticed an altercation taking place at the Chevron gas station. The officers pulled in and made their inquiries, whereupon they discovered that two suspects, an 18 year old white female, and an 18 year old Latino male, had been involved in a dispute with the victim over who had arrived at the pump first, and therefore had the right of first use. These two characters proceeded to attack the victim by punching and kicking him, during which time the victim had managed to pull the 18-year-old girls hair. These two gas-guzzlers were arrested and taken to Santa Monica Jail, where they were both booked for battery.
He Was Carded!
Saturday, August 1, 2:58 p.m. Officers went to the First Federal Bank on the aforementioned date, at the aforementioned time, because staff had become suspicious about an individual who had been using various ATM cards with which to obtain money. The officers located this guy, a 31-year-old white male. and when they arrived began their investigation. They discovered that this guy had a bag, within which they found, after a permissible search, a number of credit cards, as well as a quantity of $20.00 bills. The guy, it transpired, had allegedly been fraudulently using credit cards and so was arrested for it and carted off to jail.
