Incident of the day
On Dec.31, 2014, at about 10:15 a.m., day watch patrol officers responded to a call of a vehicle theft that had just occurred in the area of Ocean and Washington avenues. The stolen vehicle, a City of Santa Monica-owned pressure washing truck, was last seen driving away northbound on Ocean Avenue with a male suspect at the wheel. Officers located the vehicle almost immediately, weaving in and out of the bicycle lane on Montana Avenue and coming perilously close to parked cars. Fearing the driver might strike a pedestrian or cyclist, officers immediately turned on their lights and sirens for a high-risk traffic stop. The vehicle yielded along the south curb in the 400 block of Montana and the driver was taken into custody without incident. During their investigation, officers located fresh accident damage to the city truck that corresponded to damage to a black Audi parked in the 300 block of Montana. The suspect was arrested for vehicle theft, misdemeanor hit and run, and driving without a license, and transported to the Santa Monica Jail for booking. Martin Carlisle, 67, of Los Angeles, had bail set at $25,000.
