Teens Arrested for Robbery and Assault in Costa Mesa


Four Costa Mesa teenagers face serious charges after an atempting to shoplift from a Ralphs supermarket escalated quickly to a hostile confrontation with police and an attempt to remove an officer’s handgun.


The Costa Mesa Police Department received a report of “uncooperative, hostile” shoplifting suspects from a Ralphs supermarket on 17th Street Tuesday afternoon. Allegedly, three males and one female attempted to grab beer and run toward the exit. Store security captured one of the teenagers and held him in a secure office. Four accomplices later returned and attempted to break down the door.


The first responding police officer found a male and a female suspect physically fighting with the store’s loss-prevention personnel. While the officer was handcuffing one female assailant, a second female suspect approached the officer from behind and attempted to forcibly remove his handgun from his belt holster, police said.


Luckily, an off-duty female Orange County sheriff’s deputy, who happened to be in the store, assisted the police officer in physically restraining and handcuffing the second female suspect. The situation took a turn when the officer grabbed a nearby uncooperative male suspect. The male suspect then allegedly punched the officer in the face. The officer and a second arriving officer wrestled the suspect to the ground and detained him.


The four suspects were booked for attempting to forcibly steal liquor from the store, police said. Two Costa Mesa girls, ages 15 and 16, and two Costa Mesa boys, ages 14 and 15, were booked on various charges including conspiracy to commit robbery, resisting an officer, assaulting an officer and attempting to take an officer’s firearm. They were held without bail.

132 Arrests in Newport and Costa Mesa over July 4th Holiday

Police made 132 Fourth of July-related arrests in Newport Beach and Costa Mesa, police said Friday. Newport Beach police arrested 123 revelers between Thursday and 5:30 a.m. Friday. The arrests were largely related to alcohol and parties, although specifics were not immediately available, police said.

This year’s arrest total was similar to those of the past few years. Newport Beach made 119 arrests last year, according to Newport police spokeswoman Jennifer Manzella.

In Newport Beach there were 943 events logged from midnight on the Fourth of July to 5:30 a.m. Friday, according to Newport Beach Police Lt. Jon Lewis. Those events include self-initiated police activity and citizen calls for service, Lewis said. A more specific breakdown was not available.

Newport, with assistance from the Orange County Sheriff’s Department, Irvine Police Department, California Highway Patrol and the Orange County Regional Mounted Enforcement Unit, had 200 safety personnel on patrol Thursday,, Manzella said.



Costa Mesa police said they arrested nine people from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. Thursday — four for impaired driving, one for drug possession, one for being drunk in public, one for an arrest warrant, one for an arsonist failing to register with the Police Department and one for a fireworks-related citation.

 

The Costa Mesa Police Department deployed 14 to 26 officers throughout the city on the Fourth of July, police said. Costa Mesa authorities received 224 fireworks calls, and officers were dispatched to 40, police said. Authorities received 47 calls in Costa Mesa related to disturbances or fights that were handled by officers, police said.


 

This Fourth of July Orange County celebrated with fireworks, barbeques, sparklers and sunshine. It was a great day to celebrate our nations independence to remember those who serve and protect our country. However, oftentimes the celebration does not end with applause at the fireworks bursting in the sky but rather handcuffs in the back of a police cruiser.


 

If you or a loved one were charged with driving under the influence or with other crimes, contact an experienced criminal defense attorney to fight your charges and reduce your fines. A DUI or criminal conviction can be costly, you can lose your license, lose your transportation, and will have to pay hefty fines. DonHo, an established criminal defense attorney, will fight the charges on your behalf.
