Enjoy a good laugh with Murrieta PD’s Weekly Roundup 6/7

From Murrieta PD/Facebook

– Friday night Officer Baker contacted Samantha Esparza, Joseph Garcia and a female companion in the parking lot of a fast food restaurant. Officer Baker conducted a records check of the vehicle they were in and discovered that it had been reported stolen out of Lake Elsinore in April. #rollinstolen The duo probably thought that they were pretty clever by putting different license plates on the car to try and cover their nefarious activity. #nicetry See, it wasn’t their first rodeo. Samantha is on probation for vehicle theft and Joseph is on #PRCS for the same. #shocker The #crimingcouple won another trip to #thebyrdhouse and their companion was sent on her way.

– Things you want to avoid: getting audited by the IRS, going to the DMV without an appointment, and getting on the SET team’s radar. #allarenofun Sama Kazimi realized Thursday afternoon that the first two are a lot better options than the third. #dontmesswithSET The SET team served a search warrant at his house and located cocaine, THC oil, ecstasy, marijuana, brass knuckles, and a handgun. Sama was arrested and booked into #CBDC on an array of narcotics and weapons charges and his girlfriend was arrested for narcotics related charges and destroying evidence. Keanu Hughes has also made the SET Team’s list. #notagoodlisttobeon The Team served a warrant at his house on Friday and guess what they found. #youllneverguess Yep, they found cocaine. #ifyoudontwanttogotojail #dontselldrugs #itsprettysimple #MPDSET #hookinandbookin

– The Parole Probation Compliance Team #PPCT has been pretty busy lately. Friday afternoon they conducted a probation check at the residence of Tera Lyche. It wasn’t a good day for Tera or her friend Armando Martinez. Turns out that having meth, prescription medication that isn’t yours and narcotics paraphernalia is a violation of your probation. #whowouldathunk Plus, Armando had some outstanding warrants, so there went their weekend. #bummer #makebetterchoices

– If you’re going to steal someone’s checkbook (which we highly recommend that you don’t do) and you choose to write yourself a check from said stolen checkbook (which we highly recommend that you don’t do) don’t be surprised when we arrest you. I mean come on, you wrote your own name on the check. That’s a pretty good clue. #justsayin Rachel Cote was arrested for forgery, fraud, burglary and violating her probation.

– This has been a bad week for impaired drivers. We take all DUI’s very seriously and will continue to stop, arrest and prosecute impaired drivers. There were actually two people arrested for DUI within two and an half hours Monday night . #notacceptable David Martin was arrested after he was involved in a traffic collision on Jefferson Avenue. Less than a mile away, Jacob Cardona was stopped when an officer observed him driving nearly twice the speed limit on Jefferson Avenue and was found to be DUI. There really is no excuse to drive impaired. #noexcuses #uber #lyft #taxi #callyourmomma
