Enjoy a few good laughs with Murrieta PD’s Weekly Roundup 11/29

From Murrieta PD Facebook:

– Don’t you hate it when you have plans for the day and someone comes along and ruins it? #partypooper Steven Kuhn had gone to the store for provisions for his party when people started chasing him. #whoareyou #whyareyoufollowingme He really shouldn’t be surprised though, that’s usually what happens when you get caught stealing. He zigged and zagged. He jumped over fences and hid on balconies, but he couldn’t lose them. #police #lossprevention Maybe next time he’ll just pay for his goods like everyone else.

– What do you do when you hang out with friends? Most people go golfing, to the wineries, or hang out and watch sports. Not Francisco Rivera, Brent Willett and Marcos Hernandez. They go to jail together. #friendswhocrimetogether #havethesamecourtdate #carpool The trio was contacted after a local sporting goods store reported subjects matching their description were possibly stealing from the location. Officers quickly located the boys and discovered their narcotics and warrants. #reservationatthebyrdhouse #partyofthree

– Some people don’t enjoy the holidays and the functions that go along with them. There are people that avoid these functions by working or even claiming to be sick. Another way of getting out of family holiday obligations is to get arrested. #notrecommended #fakeaheadacheinstead Stephanie Orosco missed her Thanksgiving dinner after getting into a traffic collision Wednesday evening. The responding officers discovered that Ms. Orosco had been driving under the influence of an alcoholic beverage. #DUI She was less than happy about her situation and was pretty vocal about her feelings. #dontforget #Santaiswatching #naughtylist Ms. Orosco spent her holiday at #thebyrdhouse. #doesthebyrdhousehaveturkeydinners

– Saturday evening MPD Dispatch received a report of a traffic collision where one of the involved parties fled the scene. #hitandrun Witnesses updated dispatch with the location of the fleeing motorist and Officer Bradley was able to detain her before she fled again. #wegotarunner It didn’t take long for Officer Bradley to figure out why Michelle Stankey ran, it was because she was driving under the influence. #DUI #noreason #taxi #uber #lyft #callyourmomma

– Monday morning Officers Baker and Martin were conducting patrol in the area of Scott and Antelope when they located an occupied stolen vehicle. #rollinstolen They discovered that the driver, Michael Gomez was on parole and the passenger John Shaw had some meth. Possessing a stolen vehicle while on parole and having a significant amount of meth is frowned upon. #incaseyouwerewondering #justdontdoit

– Officer Miller contacted Deston Sevilla Monday evening after seeing him run through traffic. #dangerous #frogger #notagoodidea Unfortunately for Deston, possessing meth was a violation of the terms of his parole. #youcantdothat #readthefineprint

– Wednesday morning officers responded to the area of California Oaks and California Oaks Plaza regarding a suspicious male looking into cars. #observantcitizen #lockyourcars #takeyourpurse The PPCT team responded and quickly located the suspect vehicle as it was leaving the area. The officers contacted Chase Cardwell and three of his friends. Unfortunately for one of those friends, she had an outstanding felony warrant. Chase also had an outstanding misdemeanor warrant as well as some stolen property. Chase and his gal-pal went to #thebyrdhouse and their friends were sent on their way.

– As you’re out this weekend holiday shopping, please remember that there are people out there looking to do some “shopping” of their own. #wecallthemtheives If you can, drop off your purchases off at home before going to the next store. If you can’t, remember to not leave your purchases in plain sight in your vehicle. Breaking a car window and grabbing your gifts takes only seconds. Remember to #hide and #lock before you shop.
