Alert: Police Blotter:

Reconstituted Love Flounders.

Monday, October 5, 9:00 p.m. Officers went to the 2000 block of Virginia Avenue in response to what is generally termed as a domestic dispute . When the officers arrived, they learned from the two participants in said dispute (one male, and one female), that they had at one time been lovers, but that love had mutated into a platonic arrangement, with the intention of conducting the harmonious sharing of a domicile. That particular defined relationship, it appears, went awry, as the officers learned that the female had become upset (lost it?), when she had discovered that the male was departing the living space that evening, in order to conduct a liaison with another woman. One thing led to another, and another thing led to a physical fight, with the male receiving bite marks, and the female having her hair pulled out. Clearly, the officers recognized that both parties were suspects, and so arrested the male, aged 21, and the female, aged 20, and booked them both for assault (upon each other).

Locker Room Lifters Locked Up.

Wednesday, October 7. A Santa Monica College Police Investigator was on the case of a number of locker room burglaries that had been occurring in the men’s locker room, at the college. During the course of this investigation, the investigator contacted an area business, in order to discover if there was a CCTV videotape in existence, of a suspect trying to purchase items with a credit card that had been stolen from the men’s locker room. The business employee confirmed that there indeed was such a recording, so the investigator told this employee that he was on his way down to check it out. No sooner had the investigator hung up (his phone), the business employee called him back, this time to tell him that the suspect guy was back in the store, this time with a buddy, and was making attempts to purchase items again, but that the card they were attempting to use had been…declined (“hey, let’s go back to the scene of the crime, and do the exact same crime again!”). The investigator arrived at the business, and detained these two guys, and determined that they had been attempting to make purchases with a credit card that had just been reported stolen from the men’s locker room. One suspect, a male Latino, aged 23,of Huntington Park was arrested for burglary, and possession of burglary tools. The other suspect, M/L/21 of Los Angeles was arrested for burglary, and possession of stolen property. At the time of writing, neither suspect was reported as having undergone a recent IQ test.

The Recession Hits A 7-11 (employee)!

Thursday, October 8, 3:15 p.m. Officers went to the 7-11 store in the 600 block of Wilshire, because a man was refusing to leave, and had apparently assaulted an employee who was behind the counter. When the officers arrived, they learned that this guy had been panhandling every customer who entered the store, and that he was rather intoxicated (“Got any spare change? Spare change any got? Change got spare any?”). After these efforts had failed to procure any substantial revenue, this intoxicated guy decided that a more “point of sale” approach was required, and so transferred his business plan into the store, in order to ask for spondulics from the customers as they stood in line at the counter. That did it for the 7-11 employee, and he requested that the “entrepreneur” depart the store (“go, just go already!”). This panhandler responded in a fashion that appears to be common in these cases, in that he attempted to strike the employee with his fist. Hence the arrival of the cops, and, hence this 28 year old white male’s arrest for assault, public intoxication, and resisting arrest.

Back Stabbing.

Thursday, October 8, 6:15 p.m. Officers heard about an assault with a deadly weapon in the vicinity of Lincoln and Olympic, so they went there. When they arrived, they discovered a man with knife wounds in the area, and then discovered that this guy with the wounds was in fact the suspect. A witness told the cops that this guy had actually stabbed another individual in the arm and chest, but that the victim had taken the knife off the assailant, and stabbed back, prior to being separated by a (brave?) witness. Both the suspect and victim then took off in opposite directions. The cops arrested the suspect, a male black, aged 42, of no fixed abode, and booked him for attempted murder.
