Alert: Police Blotter:

Angels Spotted

On Thursday, August 5, at 10:30 a.m., officers were called to the Sears department store, at 302 Colorado Avenue, because one of the store’s staff members had detained a suspect whom they believed had been stealing. When the officers arrived at Sears, the Loss Prevention Officer (these employees are typically undercover “store detectives,” who patrol the premises in a clandestine manner that is intended to project the illusion that they are simply just another shopper, perusing the goods, just like any other prospective customer) informed them that the suspect, a 30-year-old male transient had entered the store, and had caught the professional eye of the Loss Prevention Officer, who then observed his activities.

The suspect proceeded to pick up a baseball cap, which was endowed with the unmistakable embroidered logo of the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim baseball team. The suspect then placed this “Angelic” hat into a white bag, thus concealing it from the eyes of the Loss Prevention Officer, and anybody else, for that matter, and attempted to leave the store. The Loss Prevention Officer then prevented the suspect from doing this. After hearing this narration from the Loss Prevention Officer, the officers arrested the suspect, and took him to the Santa Monica Jail. To cap it all off, his bail was set at $1000.

GPS Located

On Thursday, August 5, at 1:20 a.m., officers were on patrol in the 1900 block of Ocean Avenue when they observed some individuals. These individuals were behaving in a way that the officers considered suspicious, so they approached them, and began their investigation in order to determine whether or not some kind of crime had been committed.

The officers discovered that some other subjects, of similar suspicious appearances, had jumped over a nearby fence and taken a bicycle that was there. The cops then questioned them, and discovered that one of these people was still in possession of the bicycle, as well as a global positioning satellite (GPS) machine. The cops used police skills to discover that the GPS machine had been stolen from a vehicle that was parked in the 2800 block of Ocean Front Walk. The police arrested this suspect, a male juvenile, for conspiracy to commit a crime, as well as grand theft. He was later released to the custody of a guardian.

He Had To Face The Music

Shortly before 6:30 a.m. on Friday, August 6, the manager of the building at 1500 block of 5th Street was awoke to the sound of loud music emanating from one of the units in this building. The manager went to the unit and requested that the tenant turn down the volume, indicating that the loud music was causing a disturbance to other tenants. The tenant duly reduced the volume of the music to an acceptable level, and the manager returned to his abode.

About five minutes later the manager noticed that the music had been turned up again, and so returned to the apartment in question. The manager repeated his original request to reduce the decibel level of the music, this time however the guy refused to do so. The manager took it upon himself to turn the volume down, and yes, you guessed it, a fight ensued.

At 6:40 a.m., officers were summoned to the site on a report of assault and battery. The tenant assaulted the manager, and so the police were called. The suspect, a 40-year-old male of Santa Monica, was arrested and booked for assault and battery. His bail is $20,000.
