Police Blotter: December 9, 2022

Monday, November 28

At 12:31 a.m. Claremont Police Department officers on patrol near San Jose Avenue and Indian Hill Boulevard spotted a black Mercedes Benz CLK 320 with an inoperable brake light and conducted a traffic stop. After questioning the driver, Fresno resident Tarrayn Billings, 19, a records check turned up an outstanding misdemeanor warrant for shoplifting in the central California town of Los Baños. Billings’ passenger, later identified as Teantre Millro, 27, also of Fresno, refused to present ID or give his name. Police said he appeared to be under the influence of marijuana and reported that a suspected marijuana cigar, or “blunt,” was in plain view. Officers also stated he appeared confused and had trouble answering questions. Police determined Millro was unable to care for himself and arrested him for public intoxication. The pair was transported to the Claremont jail, booked, and Billings was released with a citation to appear at Pomona Superior Court. A records check based on fingerprints showed that Millro was on probation in Fresno county for a previous making criminal threats conviction. He was held for detoxification and released with a citation.

An assistant manager at Claremont Toyota, 601 Auto Center Dr., called police at 8:52 p.m. to report a 2016 Chevy Silverado had been stolen from the sales lot. Surveillance video showed an unknown suspect in a dark sweater, red pants and white shoes enter the lot. It’s also unknown how the person gained access to the truck, which is seen a short time later heading east on Auto Center Drive. The Silverado was recovered by another law enforcement agency the next day, although the report did not say where it was located.

At 7:30 p.m. officers responded to a domestic disturbance call from a home on Mountain Avenue north of Base Line Road. Upon arrival they located a female suspect in the home’s driveway and detained her in the back of a patrol car. They also found a victim who had visible lacerations on the back of both hands. The suspect allegedly used a metal alarm company sign to hit the victim multiple times and also punched the victim in the face. The suspect also reportedly broke a window in the home’s front door. While in the patrol car, the suspect allegedly began banging her head on the car window. When an officer opened the door in an attempt to calm her down, the suspect reportedly spat in the officer’s face. L.A. County Fire responded to assess the suspect, but police say she then became combative with firefighters and refused to be evaluated. The suspect was arrested and transported to CPD jail. A judge approved and signed an emergency protective order for the victim, which was served on the subject in her jail cell. While in the holding cell she reportedly became irate and smashed a jail phone. The suspect was charged with two felonies, domestic violence and damaging jail property, and misdemeanor battery on a police officer. Later, a bond agent posted bail on her behalf. At 3:55 a.m. Saturday, officers again responded to the residence because the suspect allegedly called the victim, a violation of the protective order. Police reviewed the victim’s phone, which they say showed the suspect called the victim seven times over a roughly 20-minute period. Police informed the bail agent of the alleged court order violation, and the agent revoked the suspect’s bond. The bail agent then located the suspect, took her into custody, and transported her back to CPD jail, where she was held in front of a Tuesday, December 6 arraignment in Pomona Superior Court.

Police responded to a 10:02 p.m. call regarding a man lying in the front yard of a home in the 500 block of E. Sixth Street on the Claremont McKenna College campus. Police contacted Etiwanda resident Jacob Toy, 31, and a records check showed he had an active no-bail felony warrant in San Bernardino County for violation of his post-release community supervision, which is a type of parole. He was arrested, booked, and later transported to West Valley Detention Center in Rancho Cucamonga.

Police received a call at 11:30 p.m. about a customer at The Whisper House, 502 W. First St., who was refusing to pay his bill. Police say the man, Machun Ming, 43, who had no apparent city of residence, had finished his meal but apparently did not understand why he had to pay and began arguing with employees. Officers arrived and contacted Ming, who initially provided a false name and had several foreign identification cards with various names. In an attempt to locate his real ID, police searched his backpack, where they allegedly found a loaded handgun. He was arrested for misdemeanor possession of loaded firearm in public and transported to the CPD jail. Due to medical problems, he was subsequently released and transported to an area hospital.
