Featured arrest:

On December 29, 2014, at approximately 2 a.m.

Officers working a uniformed burglary suppression detail in an unmarked police car observed a Hyundai Elantra repeatedly circling several blocks in an area recently impacted by an increase in theft and burglary-related crimes. The officers performed a DMV check of the vehicle’s license plate and found it was a rental car. Based on the suspicious driving behavior, the officers stopped the vehicle in the 800 block of Wilshire Boulevard and contacted the male driver and his two female passengers. The officers noted a strong odor of marijuana coming from the interior of the vehicle. A subsequent search of the vehicle turned up 0.18 grams of concentrated cannabis and a black metal flashlight/stun gun. The driver, identified by his driver license as Joseph Ryan Felix, had a misdemeanor warrant for his arrest issued by San Bernardino County. The passengers were interviewed and released; Felix was placed under arrest for illegal possession of a stun gun and possession of concentrated cannabis and transported to the Santa Monica Jail for booking. San Bernardino Sheriffs declined arrest on the warrant at this time. Joseph Ryan Felix, 28, of San Bernardino, had bail set at $500.
