The pair fled with some property.

July 19, 2017 by · Leave a Comment 

La policía está pidiendo la ayuda del público para identificar a un hombre que se arrodillo para orar antes de robar donaciones para los pobres en una iglesia de Bell Gardens.

El sospechoso, descrito como un hombre hispano, fue captado por las cameras de vigilancia el 15 de junio mientras robaba la caja de donaciones en la iglesia St. Gertrudes en la avenida Garfield.

Según la policía de Bell Gardens, el sospechoso entró a la iglesia a través de una puerta de salida y se dirigió a la Capilla de Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe, donde procedió a pretender que estaba rezando. Luego forzó abrir una caja de donaciones de madera y robó el dinero adentro, dijo la policía en un comunicado. La cantidad de dinero que consiguió es desconocida, dijo la policía.

La policía llamo la atención sobre las acciones del hombre que, según ellos, parecían ser un intento de mezclarse con los feligreses de la iglesia.

El sospechoso, que pasó menos de 15 minutos en la iglesia, hizo una pausa varias veces para orar en el altar, y luego se ve en el video haciendo el signo de la cruz mientras sale de la iglesia.

A partir de ahora, la investigación es “más como una expedición de pesca”, le dijo el Detective de Bell Gardens Don Leuschen a EGP. A partir del miércoles por la mañana, la policía había recibido dos llamadas; uno diciendo que el sospechoso estaba comiendo en un Subway y otro que podría conducir a un nuevo rastro para que la policía lo siguiera.

El sospechoso fue visto por última vez con una camisa azul y pantalones cortos del color café claro.

El robo enojo a los feligreses, especialmente por uso de prácticas religiosas por parte del sospechoso.

“Si usted va tomar algo así y todavía tiene el valor de arrodillarse y orar y hacer el signo de la cruz, se burla de lo que creemos”, dijo la feligresa Krystal Ledezma para el Canal 2 de CBS.

A cualquier persona con información se le pide que llame al Departamento de Policía de Bell Gardens al (562) 843-4031.

Rams Will Pay for Police and Other City Services

September 15, 2016 by · Leave a Comment 

The Los Angeles Rams have agreed to reimburse thefull cost of city services incurred during home games at the Coliseum, including for police, fire and street services, Mayor Eric Garcetti announced
Tuesday.

“(Team owner) Stan Kroenke and the Rams organization made it clear to me from the start that they intended to be partners with the city and good neighbors to the people of Los Angeles and the region,” Garcetti said. “The commitment they made today, to cover the cost of game-day impacts to the city — including police, fire and sanitation support at and around the Coliseum — is a win for

Police presence at the games will also not take officers away from existing patrols around the city, Garcetti said. Only off-duty police officers will provide security outside the Coliseum during games.

“This partnership ensures that fans will continue to enjoy a secure and family-friendly experience at the venue, with no impact on our ability to provide public safety to all of our communities,” he said.

The officers working inside the Coliseum gates will still be on “regular duty and pay,” according to Garcetti spokesman Carl Marziali.

The Rams will also make retroactive payments for two pre-season games held last month, under the agreement. The team’s first regular-season home game will be on Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks.

Marziali said the team was already paying for the costs of transportation officers.

The Los Angeles Police Protective League, the union that represents LAPD officers, has been pushing the team to pony up money for security costs. The LAPPL estimated that the security will cost the city about $2 million a year, with more than 200 officers needed at each game. Union officials released a statement saying they are “pleased that the Rams receipt of taxpayer-funded police patrols to secure their games will now end and that they will pay their bill.”

“Keeping police officers on duty fighting crime was the reason the League exposed this arrangement and we now hope that other organizations, such as USC, will follow Mr. Kroenke’s lead and to no longer accept free police officers for their events at the expense of neighborhood safety,” according to the union.

The union noted that the agreement “shouldn’t have taken so much effort to achieve.” Former City Councilman Dennis Zine and Los Angeles resident James Bibeau filed a taxpayer lawsuit last month looking to force the team to fund the security cost, saying it would otherwise be an unlawful gift of public funds to the Rams.

Four Los Angeles City Council members also sent a letter last month urging Kroenke to commit to covering all the public safety costs incurred at games played at Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. One of the council members who signed the letter, Mitch O’Farrell, said the agreement “is exactly the outcome we were hoping for.”

He said the use of police officers at the recent games necessitate shifting officers from around the city, and the agreement means officers can now “just focus on the core mission of making the community safer.”
