Crime watch

On April 3, a patrol officer at the intersection of 4th Street and Raymond Avenue observed a green Chevrolet SUV with tinted front windows, a violation of the Vehicle Code. As the vehicle passed, the officer noted that the SUV’s registration stickers were expired (January 2015).

When the officer pulled the vehicle over a few blocks away and made contact with the driver, she was surprised to see the steering column of the vehicle was wired with a second ignition that was used by the driver to turn the vehicle off and on. When she asked the driver how the second ignition worked, he showed her that it allowed him to use any key to start the vehicle.

The driver, who admitted he did not have a license, explained that he received the vehicle with the second ignition already installed when he borrowed it from a friend.

The driver, who was later identified as Cosme Medina Corrales, 37, Montebello, only knew the first name of the registered owner and a possible phone number. The officer tried several times to contact the owner before eventually impounding the vehicle.

Corrales was arrested for driving without a license and held on $100 bail.
