Woman on drugs calls police, gets six arrested
On Wednesday, October 15 a call about a possible vehicle theft resulted in the arrest of six people, but it had nothing to do with a stolen car. Amanda Maxwell, 34, had called police around 1 a.m., indicating that her car had been stolen from the parking lot at Hotel Claremont. When officers arrived and located the parked vehicle in the lot, they questioned Ms. Maxwell who admitted she’d smoked methamphetamine earlier in the day. She told officers that her driver’s license and keys were in another room, which resulted in the arrest of five others for various outstanding warrants and/or possession of a controlled substance. The Pomona resident was arrested for being under the influence of a controlled substance and later released on $2,500 bail.
