Alert: Police Blotter:

Expensive Exit For Ejected Ex

On Friday, October 15, at 6:35 p.m. officers went to the 200 block of Marine Street in regard to a domestic violence report. When they arrived they spoke to the victim, a woman, who told them that she had asked her boyfriend (the suspect) to move out of her residence (boyfriend, get out!) on a previous day. She had then given him some money in order to help him find another place in which to live (boyfriend, here’s some money!).

On the above date she had returned home to find her boyfriend was still there (boyfriend, you’re still here!). She then went to the dresser so that she could recover the money that she had given him, and once again offered him the money to leave (boyfriend, for the second time…), adding that if he did not leave she would summon the police. She told the officers that at that point the boyfriend began to mock her, and then grabbed the money from her, whereupon a struggle ensued, and she fell to the ground. The boyfriend (one assumes the prefix “ex” would apply by now) then began to flee the scene with the money. The officers located the suspect as he was attempting to exit the building, and they arrested him for battery on a cohabitant and a warrant. His bail is $42,500.

Passenger Attracts Attention

On Friday, October 15, at 11:15 a.m. officers stopped a vehicle in Santa Monica that had tinting on the passenger-side window. The officers contacted the driver, and in doing so detected the odor of marijuana emitting from the interior of the vehicle. The officers attempted to obtain identification from the occupants, but the passenger verbally gave a date of birth that did not correspond with the ID that was presented.

Officers looked inside a backpack that the passenger had in his possession, and discovered, in addition to some marijuana, Valium, and Ativan (drugs used to treat anxiety disorders), and some Adderall (a drug used to treat attention deficit disorder), both of which are controlled substances. The officers used a fingerprint device in order to obtain the true identity of the passenger, and the result was that the last name was the same, but the first one was not the one given. The officers discovered that this man had attempted to impersonate his own brother in order to avoid arrest, an apparently thoughtless attempt to deceive the police, given the technological resources available to contemporary law enforcement agencies. One may conclude that as a possible result of taking too much of the Valium and Ativan, and not enough of the Adderall, he was perhaps too relaxed to pay attention to the details of the story that he was weaving in order to avoid arrest.

This 25-year-old Topanga man was arrested for false impersonation to avoid prosecution, possession of concentrated cannabis, possession of controlled substances, possession of marijuana, and a warrant. His bail is $55,105.
