Police blotter 1-30-15

Wednesday, January 21

A man with no plan and a belly full of beer figured out exactly where he was going after speaking with Claremont police. Peter Lazos was contacted by officers on the northwest corner of Indian Hill and Foothill Boulevards around 12:19 a.m. after receiving a report of an intoxicated man walking on the streets. The La Verne resident appeared disoriented, his speech was slurred and he was leaning on a pole to keep himself from falling down. When questioned by police, the 26-year-old admitted that he’d had three double IPA’s at a bar in Claremont, he didn’t know where he was and he didn’t have a plan to get back home. “I’m going to the police department,” he told officers when asked, adding “I’m jacked-up!” Mr. Lazos was arrested and booked for being drunk and disorderly. He was later released without charges.


A mountain man heading for the hills took an unexpected detour after police arrested him for driving under the influence. According to Lieutenant Mike Ciszek, officers discovered Pavel Dvorak asleep behind the wheel of his vehicle, with his car in drive and his foot on the brake, in a southbound lane on Monte Vista Avenue. Police made contact with the Mt. Baldy resident around 6 p.m. at the Foothill Boulevard intersection and detected symptoms of alcohol intoxication. Officers questioned the driver, asking the 50-year-old if he knew where he was, to which he responded, “What do you mean?” several times. He then looked up at the street signs and said, “I don’t know.” Mr. Dvorak told officers he’d left his child’s school and was going to Mt. Baldy. When asked why he was traveling south he said, “Maybe I’m going the wrong way, but I’m going to Mt. Baldy.” A field sobriety test determined the 6’6” 280 pound man was more than twice the legal limit and he was taken into custody.


Two teenage girls, an open can of Coors Light and a condom were found with a Montclair man, resulting in his arrest. Officers stopped the vehicle driven by 32-year-old Cristian Reyes around 9:30 p.m. at Padua and Base Line Road. After approaching the vehicle, the officer discovered an open container in plain sight in the rear passenger area alongside a plastic bag containing more beer. Officers determined one of the juveniles had consumed a small amount of the beer and they found a condom in the wallet of the driver. Mr. Reyes was arrested for furnishing alcohol to minors and annoying/molesting children under 18. The girls were 14 and 15 years old.

A Claremont homeowner contacted police after discovering her property was fraudulently listed for rent on a popular real estate website. An unknown perpetrator created a rental listing for the Huron Drive home and posted it on Trulia.com without the homeowner’s knowledge.  According to Lt. Ciszek, the 47-year-old victim did not give permission for the beguiler to list the property for rent or to post it online.


A self-employed Pomona female, suspected of vandalizing the car of one of her clients, caught a break after he refused to press charges. Police responded to the 400 block of Auto Center Drive around 6 p.m. following a report of vandalism in progress. Brandy Revell, 27, was contacted by officers as she walked away from the victim’s maroon Hyundai Elantra. The 52-year-old owner of the Hyundai was located shortly thereafter and advised of the incident, but declined to prosecute. A records check revealed Ms. Revell had an outstanding warrant for her arrest and she was taken into custody anyway.
