Alert: Police Blotter: For the Week of June 24 – July 1, 2009

Sleeping…Duty

On Wednesday, June 16, at 4:45 a.m. officers were in the process of conducting a routine check on a property in the 1600 block of 5th Street when they happened to notice a female human being sleeping on the property. This female did not own the property, and was not a party in any form of rental or lease agreement with the owners that would have categorized her from being anything but a trespasser. The cops identified her, advised her that she had no business being on the property, and suggested quite clearly that it would be in her best interest that she leave the property and not return. The police then had to rush off in order to attend to some more pressing police business, but informed her that they would be back. The following night, at 5:27 in the morning, approximately 25 hours later, the cops went back to see if this woman had taken their warnings seriously, and concluded that, because the same woman was doing the same thing, in the same place, that she had not heeded the clear warnings that they had issued. The officers had, in the meantime and possibly expecting a subordinate response to their warnings, had also taken the precaution of obtaining a letter from the owner of the property requesting that anyone found trespassing upon the property be arrested without any further ado. Officers subsequently carried out their duty, and arrested this 56-year-old woman of no fixed abode forthwith, for the aforementioned crime and took her to jail. Bail: $1,000.

Armed Not Dangerous

On Friday, June 18, at 7:49 p.m. officers went to 1200 15th Street in response to a report of domestic violence. Upon arrival the cops spoke with the woman half of this male/female couple, and this woman-half explained to these cops that she had been involved in an argument with her boyfriend. The boyfriend had attempted to leave, but the woman-half explained that she had not wanted this to occur so she blocked his escape route with her arm, so the boyfriend grabbed said left forearm, and physically moved her out of the way. This act resulted in the woman-half feeling some pain in her left forearm. Officers inspected the arm, and noticed that there was some swelling, and thus arrested the male-half, aged 22, for domestic violence. He was not eligible for bail due to an immigration violation.

The Sequence Of Events

On Friday, June 18, at 6:25 p.m. Officers went to the Sears department store, located on the 300 block of Colorado Avenue. The nature of this crime was petty theft. The items involved in this crime were a pair of swimming shorts and a T-Shirt. The nefarious tool utilized in the commission of this crime was a bag. The miscreant perpetrator of this crime was a 41-year-old man. The “hood” from which this rapscallion had traveled from in order to execute this crime was Tarzana. The “Johnny-on-the-spot” who first noticed that this crime was in progress was a store detective, employed by Sears to do just that. The result of this crime was that the alleged thief was arrested, and taken to jail. The bail for this crime: $1,000.
