Made In The U.S.A.
Wednesday, February 3, 1:18 p.m. Officers attended the American Apparel store on Third Street Promenade in response to a theft. Upon arrival, the cops eyed four individuals who matched the description of the suspects. The officers investigated two of these people and found that, low and behold, they were in possession of American Apparel apparel. The suspects admitted that they had removed these items without paying, and thus, according to protocol, the store staff placed them under arrest for petty (coat?) theft. Two females, one aged 18, and one aged 14, were booked for petty theft.
Did I Get Beaten Up?
Wednesday, February 3, 8:50 p.m. Officers went to the Ralph’s store on the 1600 block of Cloverfield Boulevard in order to attend to a combative and intoxicated individual there. When they arrived they realized that this guy was the same one who had been involved in an assault that took place on January 26, at the same location. On that day, at 10:43 p.m. the cops had been called to the Santa Monica Emergency Hospital to speak with a guy who had been assaulted, but didn’t remember if he had been assaulted, but displayed serious injuries obviously sustained as result of being assaulted. The officers did follow up on that day and discovered that the guy that they were now confronted with had assaulted this chap at the Ralph’s store. The officers thus arrested the drunken guy in Ralph’s for felony assault and public intoxication.
Micro Soft In His Pants?
Thursday, February 4, 7:35 p.m. Officers went to the Apple store located at the 1200 block of Third Street Promenade, not to “think different,” but to investigate a theft suspect in custody. When they arrived the security person told them that a man had removed software (with a $99.00 value) from a shelf and put it in his pants. The suspect then left the store. Store personnel then stopped the guy outside the store and, after asking him about the program in his pants, placed him under citizen’s arrest. The suspect, a 20-year-old male, was cited at the store for petty theft.
Three Bad Men
Friday, February 5. Officers arrested three guys, two aged 23, and one aged 52, all of San Bernardino for conspiracy, robbery, kidnapping and grand theft. Here’s why they arrested them: On January 30, shortly before12:05 a.m. these guys entered a residence in the 1300 block of Yale, they were in possession of pork ribs at the time (huh?). These guys ransacked the place and took the victim’s wallet that contained $1,000.00 in U.S. currency. They also took another three grand, a couple of cell phones, and some narcotics. The guys fled the scene before the cops arrived, but due to diligent police work are now safely locked up in custody. All of the items were recovered to boot!
