Police blotter 7.26.13

Tuesday, July 16

Forty-year-old Ana Romero of Los Angeles gave a whole new meaning to getting high. Ms. Romero was spotted climbing in a tree at Larkin Park on Tuesday night, but it wasn’t her choice of evening exercise that got police attention. Her car, found parked on the grass with the engine still running, first drew officers’ attention, according to Lieutenant Mike Ciszek. She was also found to be under the influence of methamphetamine. Her trip to jail by contrast, was a downer.

One man’s junk is another man’s treasure. Costume jewelry, a Rolex and personal identification documents were found nestled in a pillowcase that had been dumped into a residential trashcan in the 100 block of East Base Line Road. It is unknown where the bundle came from. Police have obtained the property and are working to locate the owners.

A little sugar wasn’t so sweet for a resident in the 100 block of Eighth Street, who awoke Friday morning to an unsavory surprise. Breakfast had apparently been served on the resident’s car and house, smashed eggs causing damage to the paint. Eggs weren’t the only part of the vandalism. Sugar had been poured into the car’s gas tank. A report was taken, but there are no known suspects.

A less-than-friendly game of tag ended in arrest on Saturday morning. At first Andre Bradshaw, 31, of Compton and Erma Holmes, 26, of Riverside told police they had been fighting. The next moment, they were running after each other down Bonita. Police caught up with them shortly after. Both were wanted for outstanding warrants (Ms. Holmes for loitering with the intent to prostitute, Mr. Bradshaw for driving with a suspended license) and arrested.

A Claremont resident on probation has found himself once again behind bars. Police caught up with 25-year-old Michael Woll at his Claremont residence on Monday to conduct a search of his property. Mr. Woll was not only found to be in possession of narcotic paraphernalia, but also an estimated 28 grams of methamphetamine, according to police. He was arrested for the drug violation as well as for being a convicted felon in possession of ammunition.


A routine Monday workday for police department employees took an unexpected turn when a resident walked in to the department lobby screaming about the Mexican cartel. They were transferred from the police department to a local hospital.

A late night swim was not in the cards for 32-year-old Cheyne Cook of Hesperia, seen trying to enjoy some pool time in a complex off Reed and Regis on Tuesday. There were 2 things working against him. The fact he was wanted for an outstanding San Bernardino County warrant and the fact he was caught breaking into the pool complex area he didn’t live in. The only relaxation he was granted was some down-time in jail.
