Incident of the day

On March 6 at approximately 5:40 p.m., a Santa Monica police officer working a plain-clothes detail in the downtown area saw a suspicious man, later identified as Jose Luis Sanchez, loitering near the ground-level elevators of Structure 4 (1321 2nd St.).

Since a burglary to a vehicle had recently been reported at Structure 6, the undercover officer asked uniformed officers to stop Sanchez and watched him as he left the parking structure.

Sanchez then crossed the street and entered a vehicle parked in a public parking lot nearby.

The uniformed officers located Sanchez and saw he had a passenger, later identified as Damien Holland, in his vehicle.

The officers learned Holland was on parole, so they conducted a search of the vehicle. The officers then found several credit cards that belonged to other people, as well as several items that had been purchased from Nordstrom with the credit cards.

Nordstrom’s security camera video later showed that both Sanchez and Holland used the credit cards to make the purchases. Both men were then taken into custody and booked at the Santa Monica jail.

Sanchez, 34, of Woodland Hills, had bail set at $20,000. Holland, 34, of Santa Monica, had bail set at $20,000.
