Claremont police on patrol at 1:30 p.m. near Indian Hill Blvd. and Arrow Highway allegedly saw 

Oscar Canasvasquez, 29, from Ontario, using a black marker to tag a city sign. Cops approached with the intent of arresting him for vandalism, but Mr. Canasvasquez was allegedly non-compliant. He was also in possession of a methamphetamine pipe. Mr. Canasvasquez was subsequently arrested on three misdemeanor charges: vandalism, resisting arrest and possession of unlawful paraphernalia. 

 

Police were called to Slick Threading, 1011 W. Foothill Blvd., at 2:30 p.m. regarding a man hanging around outside with a beer in his hand. They found John Mancha, 60, from Bell, and after questioning arrested him for public intoxication and an outstanding misdemeanor warrant. Mr. Mancha was booked, and after sobering up for some time in the Claremont jail, released with a citation. 

 

Police on patrol at 6:45 p.m. near Indian Hill Blvd. and San Jose Ave. pulled over a car driven by Cyria Ford, 23, from Los Angeles, for a vehicle code violation. Ms. Ford allegedly showed signs of being intoxicated and was given a field sobriety test. She apparently failed, because she was arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol and drugs, a misdemeanor. Police are awaiting the results of a toxicology test so as to determine which drug or drugs she was allegedly under the influence of.

In yet another in the long line of Blotter blurbs featuring the violation of the number one rule of criminality, Claremont PD arrested Delcenore Dunford at the Chevron/McDonald’s at 8:20 a.m. after he returned to the scene of his alleged crime. After being asked to leave the store at 860 S. Indian Hill Blvd. earlier that morning due to loitering, Mr. Dunford, 33, from Walnut, returned, and cops were called. A CPD officer determined Mr. Dunford was high on an unknown drug, and a search allegedly turned up some food items police suspect were stolen from the market, presumably during his previous visit. So, Mr. Dunford was arrested on the three misdemeanor charges, booked, and released with a citation to appear in court.
