John Wesley Ewell, a 62 year-old man pled no contest to four counts of first-degree murder and four counts of first-degree residential robbery in a negotiated plea agreement, which included admitting special circumstance allegation of murder during a residential robbery.  He was sentenced to life in state prison without the possibility of parole.    

September 24, 2010, Suspect Ewell broke into the Hawthorne home of 80 year-old Hanna Marcos.  Before he robbed her home, Ewell choked and hit Ms. Marcos causing her to have a heart attack resulting in her death.

#BearGoesEverywhere visited the east side of Los Angeles County to visit Bonelli Regional Park, in the City of San Dimas.

The park is a man-made recreational area and it’s named after former L.A. County Supervisor Frank G. Bonelli. The park includes a 250 acre lake called Puddingstone Reservoir. Along with a waterfall, the park provides a place for fishing, swimming, sailing, wind surfing, boating, kayaking and jet skiing.

Other fun activities including hiking and biking may be enjoyed. There are RV campgrounds adjacent to the park, as well as family picnic areas, which can be used for a variety of group events and gatherings.

Bonelli Regional Park happens to be located next to one of the nation’s largest water parks, Raging Waters.

The San Dimas Sheriffs Station serves not only San Dimas, but also the surrounding communities of Covina, Azusa, Glendora, La Verne, Claremont, Azusa Canyon, Mount Baldy and Angeles National Forest (State Route 39).

Until next time, everyone stay safe and look out for the Bear in your city.#LASD

#FraudFriday- Friendship Scam

We are always willing to help a friend in need. But when does it become questionable. Recently, there have been emails received by people indicating that a friend is in a bit of a financial situation. But look closely. Does it sound like your friend, or more like a possible scam. Con artists are always looking for new ways to steal money from vulnerable victims.

This is how the scam works:
• You may receive an email from someone you know (friend or family)
• Within the email, your so-called friend says they are out of the country and needs you to wire them money.
• You may later talk to your friend, after the money has been received by the scammer, and realize the email was fake.

Tips to avoid being scammed:
• After reading the email, notice if your friend's requests sounds unusual.
• Call or text your friend, or send them an email (do not reply to the current email) to verify the request.
• Never give personal information or money without confirming the recipient.

Con artists are targeting victims on a personal level. Always verify before believing what you read. Don’t be a victim.

Additional Information and Links

Cerritos Station provides law enforcement services exclusively to the city of Cerritos on a 100% contract bases. Cerritos Station is incorporated within a 28,000 square foot facility that is connected to Cerritos City Hall. The facility is owned and operated by the city of Cerritos.

Cerritos Station was built in 1997 to provide high-quality public safety services, emphasizing community oriented policing. Cerritos Station is staffed with 63 sworn and 23 civilian employees who serve a culturally diverse community spanning a geographical area of approximately nine square miles. In addition to providing the traditional law enforcement services, the city’s Community Safety Center is also housed in the same facility with Cerritos Station. This partnership joins city and Sheriff’s Department personnel in a central location to better address community issues. The Sheriff’s Department has provided law enforcement services to the city of Cerritos for more than 45 years. The establishment of a local Sheriff’s station, funded by the city, underscores this longstanding relationship and solidifies the commitment to the community shared by the two governmental entities.

In December 2001, the city of Cerritos and Cerritos Sheriff Station developed a program to provide the community with a higher level of service and quicker responses to collect latent fingerprint evidence. The city of Cerritos wanted to provide an increased level of service, which included a more rapid check through CAL ID for property crime incidents. Likewise, the city wanted to provide station detectives with the identification of suspects to solve more crimes and hopefully recover stolen property as rapidly as possible.

To that end, the city of Cerritos contracted for its own full-time Forensic Identification Specialist II (FIS II) to be assigned at the station and the Sheriff’s Department arranged for the installation of an Automated Fingerprint Identification System (AFIS) workstation at Cerritos Station. Additionally, the city hired Community Safety Officers (CSO) who were then trained by Scientific Services Bureau in latent fingerprint recovery. The CSO’s respond to all requests for latent fingerprint involving property crimes. Since the inception of the Cerritos Station fingerprint program, almost all latent fingerprint searches have returned with a match or no record within 48 hours.

The Cerritos fingerprint identification program also services the cities of Norwalk, La Marada, Artesia, Lakewood, Bellflower, Paramount and Carson on a cost recovery bases. This program has been phenomenally successful.
