Officers on patrol at 9:41 p.m. reported seeing a maroon 2014 Honda Accord run a red light at Indian Hill Boulevard and Auto Center Drive. Police conducted a traffic stop on Brandon Williams, 31, of Moreno Valley for the red-light violation. When asked for his identification, Williams only provided a California ID card, and a records check showed his driver’s license had been revoked by the DMV. Williams reportedly told officers the revocation was “because I have all those tickets.” A further check showed he had five Riverside County arrest warrants. He was arrested for driving on the revoked license and the warrants, transported to CPD jail, booked, and later transported to jail in Riverside County for the warrants.

At 4:24 p.m. La Verne Police notified Claremont PD that they were holding a woman who had an outstanding local arrest warrant. Claremont officers responded to the 2400 block of Foothill Blvd. in La Verne to take custody of the woman, La Verne resident Lisa Haring, 31. A records check revealed the Claremont warrant was for felony identity theft and that a judge had set bail at $375,000. She also had two other felony ID theft warrants from the Fresno County Sheriff’s Office, one with bail set at $40,000 and a second at $46,000. Officers verified Haring’s identification at the scene, took her into custody and transported her to Claremont jail, where she was held for a court appearance on Monday, November 28.


Saturday, November 26

Police on patrol at 4:06 a.m. spotted a silver 2006 Ford Explorer near College and San Jose avenues they say was driving slowly through residential neighborhoods and had made several turns. When officers caught up with the vehicle, they saw its registration had expired in January 2019. Police conducted a traffic stop for the expired registration and questioned the driver, Megan Satterfield, 26, of Ontario. A records check showed she had a suspended license for an unpaid traffic ticket and an outstanding arrest warrant in Glendora. Officers said when they looked into the SUV they saw large red and black bolt cutters and a large mallet sitting on the floor between the feet of Ontario resident Juan Ortiz, 38. Police say Ortiz had a screwdriver in a jacket pocket and three keys with the teeth filed off in his pants pocket, a common tool used for stealing cars. Another passenger, a 44-year-old unhoused Pomona man, reportedly had two warrants, one in Pomona and the other in San Bernardino County. During a search police say they located a methamphetamine pipe with burnt black residue in the unhoused man’s waistband. A final passenger presented an ID and was released. Satterfield was arrested for the suspended license and a misdemeanor Glendora warrant for shoplifting, and Ortiz was arrested for possession of burglary tools. The unhoused man was arrested for a L.A. County Sheriff’s Department warrant for misdemeanor possession of paraphernalia, and a misdemeanor San Bernardino County warrant for possession of controlled substance. All three were transported, booked, and released with citations to appear in court.

Police conducted a welfare check at 2:50 p.m. on a man lying on the ground in front of a business in the 400 block of Auto Center Drive. The unhoused 29-year-old Pomona man identified himself and told police he was on probation. A records check showed he had a no bail felony warrant for a parole violation and a second misdemeanor warrant from the Los Angeles Police Department. He was transported to the Claremont jail, booked, and transferred to the Inmate Reception Center in Los Angeles, where he was held for court.


At 3:56 p.m. police received a call from a homeowner who had been tipped off by a neighbor that people were inside his vacant home in the 1400 block of Lynoak Drive. According to the caller, the home was in the process of being remodeled. When officers arrived, they saw blankets and sheets hung up to cover windows and doors. Police went into the back yard and entered the home through unlocked French doors, where they reportedly saw two people inside. As police ordered the pair to come outside, a third person fell headfirst out of a back window. That person started to run but complied when officers told him to stop and sit down. Police say they found a total of five people inside the home, and it appeared they were using it as a place to sleep. Police contacted the homeowner who wanted all five prosecuted for trespassing. Tanya Hennessey, 36, of Pomona and Susanne Sexton, 54, and Kevin Rosales, 23, both of Victorville, presented valid identification and were cited and released at the scene. Rosendo Ponce, 35, from Strathmore in central California was taken to the Claremont jail where he was issued a citation and released. Pomona resident Jeremy Daniel Uribe, 26, had an active felony no-bail parole violation warrant in L.A. County. He was booked, issued citation for trespass, transferred to the Inmate Reception Center in L.A., and held for court.
