35 Year Old Jesus N. Ibarra Arrested for Grand Theft of a Cargo & Possessing Stolen Candy Bars

TRY EXPLAINING THIS ONE WHY YOU ARE IN PRISON TO YOUR FELLOW RAPIST AND MURDERING CONS … 

THE CANDY MAN THIEF … 35 year old Jesus N. Ibarra was arrested last week and charged with grand theft of a cargo and possessing stolen property. The stolen property was 7,500 pounds of candy! The candy, which had not passed inspection, was supposed to be hauled to a San Bernardino county location for destruction. However, Jesus N. Ibarra decided to steal the candy and put it in his garage. According to the police reports, when the truck arrived to its location, about 7,500 pounds of candy were missing. This is where the greed and stupidity of those that commit crimes once again comes into play. The police were tipped off when they saw an ad turned up on Craigslist and a Facebook site for High Desert Deals.

The Candy man – Sammy Davis Jr.

Candy bars led to jail bars for a 35-year-old desert man caught with a garageful of stolen sweets, say San Bernardino County sheriff’s officials.

Hesperia resident Jesus N. Ibarra was arrested a 1:14 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 7, at his home along the 13100 block of Modesto Court and booked for investigation of a grand theft of a cargo and possessing stolen property, jail records show. He was released on bail.

The trouble started after Excel Corporation — the West Coast distributor for Mars Candy Company — contracted with a trucking company to haul a load of candy that hadn’t passed inspection to a San Bernardino county location for destruction.

When the truck arrived, about 7,500 pounds of candy were missing, sheriff’s officials said in a written statement.

Deputies caught a break when advertisements turned up on Craigslist and a Facebook site for High Desert Deals. That prompted a search warrant for Ibarra’s home.

I think i wrote on this story just so that I could use the Candy man video by Sammy Davis Jr.

11 Foot Alligator Killed 22 Year Old Matthew Riggins, Accused Burglar Hiding in Pond At the Wrong Time

GATOR JUSTICE: JUST SAY KARMA, BABY …

An 11 foot long alligator in Brevard County, Florida turned out to be judge, jury and executioner of 22 year old Matthew Riggins of Palm Bay, who is an accused burglar. Riggins was reported missing, he called his girlfriend and told her he’d be in the area breaking into homes. The police and the canine unit could not find suspected home robber, Matthew Riggins, but you know who did, the GATOR!

The animal was later found and had to be euthanized by a trapper from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. It turns out that inside the gator’s stomach, the medical examiner found proof of how Riggins was killed. Euthanized? They should have pinned a medal on the gator’s chest for crime prevention!!! Sorry, I have to agree with Barefoot Bay resident Chuck Stokes who said, “I would say it’s poetic justice, you want to sit there and steal from people.”

Matthew Riggins of Palm Bay (Brevard County Sheriff’s Office)

An accused burglar is dead after Brevard County deputies said he hid in a pond while on the run and was killed by an 11-foot-long alligator.

Matthew Riggins, 22, of Palm Bay was reported missing Nov. 13. His body was found 10 days later floating in a pond near Latan Court and Barefoot Circle, in Barefoot Bay. Investigators said it had the makings of a gator attack.

Shortly before Riggins was reported missing, he called his girlfriend and told her he’d be in the area breaking into homes, deputies said.

“He was going to do burglaries in the Barefoot Bay area with another individual,” said Maj. Tod Goodyear, with the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office.

Neighbors reported to authorities that they saw two men dressed in black lurking behind homes. Deputies began searching the area and were later joined by more deputies, K-9 units and a sheriff’s helicopter.

Investigators said Riggins then called his girlfriend to tell her they were being chased and lying low.

“Do you still hear them hollering, or did they hunker down?” deputies could be heard saying on radio traffic.

Suspected Burglar Tries to Play Santa and Failes Badly … Thief Gets Stuck in Chimney & Dies After Home Owner Lights Fire

WE REFER TO THIS AS THE THINNING OF THE HERD … ONLY SANTA CLAUS KNOWS HOW TO USE A CHIMNEY PROPERLY.

Crime really doesn’t pay … Maybe the following story from the Fresno Bee will be a future deterrent for would-be robbers use of a chimney as a means of entering a home. Then again, maybe not. A man attempting to rob a home in Huron died Saturday after his botched burglary attempt ended in his getting stuck in the chimney and then really ended when the home owners lit a fire in the fireplace. After the fire was set, police reported that the home owner heard screams coming from inside the house. At that point the home owner realized that there was some one n the chimney and put the fire out. Can you say roasted robber? The burglar was pronounced dead at the scene.  The man’s identity is being withheld pending notification of his family.

Watch the VIDEO via FOX News and listen to the anchor try and control her laughter …

A man who apparently got stuck in the chimney of a Huron home during a botched burglary attempt died Saturday after the homeowners lit a fire in the fireplace, the Fresno County Sheriff’s Office said.

Lt. Brandon Pursell said deputies received a 911 call to the 16000 block of West Gale Avenue just before 3 p.m. After lighting a fire, the male homeowner heard screaming coming from somewhere inside the house. When the resident realized a person was in the chimney, he extinguished the fire.

Deputies and firefighters had to smash the chimney to get the man out. He was pronounced dead at the scene. The Fresno County coroner will perform an autopsy to confirm a cause of death. The man’s identity is being withheld pending notification of his family.

Are you kidding me that they had to bust the chimney to get the dead criminal out? That probably caused more damage and expense to the homeowner than anything the man could have stolen.

75 Year Old Army Vet James Vernon Saves 16 Children From Knife Attack by 19 Year Old Dustin Brown at at Morton Public Library in Illinois

SCARED MONKEYS HERO OF THE WEEK … 75 YEAR OLD RETIRED VETERAN JAMES VERNON.

75 year old US military vet James Vernon saves that day as he fought off a crazed knife wielding lunatic, 19 year old Dustin Brown, and saved 16 children at a public library in Illinois. James Vernon was teaching a chess class with 16 children at Morton Public Library when authorities say 19-year-old Dustin Brown entered the room with two knives. That is when the 75 year old vet took action. Vernon suffered “two cut arteries and a tendon” while defending the kids and credited his knife-fighting skills he learned in the US Army for allowing him to delay Brown enough to get the kids to safety. According to a court affidavit, Dustin Brown told police afterward that he “failed in his mission to kill everyone.” Thanks to the efforts of hero James Vernon. Brown was ordered held on $800,000 bond pending a November 5 court appearance on charges of attempted murder, armed violence, aggravated battery to a person over age 60 and burglary for entering the library with intent to commit a crime. This POS is also due in court Monday, Oct 22 on child pornography charges filed against him in March.

James Vernon_hero

Pekin Daily Times:

Sixteen children and a handful of their mothers found the only door to their library room blocked by a man who held hunting knives in each hand as he screamed, “I’m going to kill some people!”

Dustin Brown, 19, specifically wanted to kill children Tuesday at Morton Public Library, he said after the would-be victims escaped safely.

Had he brought a firearm instead, “It would’ve been a different story,” James Vernon said Thursday.

Blood was shed, but mostly Vernon’s, because the retired chess club teacher kept his cool, gave his class an avenue of flight and remembered the knife-fight training the Army gave him five decades ago.

Vernon, 75, won his “90 seconds of combat” with Brown, “but I felt like I lost the war,” he chuckled. He cut two arteries and a tendon on Vernon’s left hand as Vernon blocked Brown’s knife swipe.

“I failed my mission to kill everyone,” Brown told police, according to a prosecutor’s court affidavit that accompanied formal charges Thursday that included attempted murder.

More Baltimore Murders … 16 Year Old Arnesha Bowers Found Sexually Assaulted, Strangled and Set Her on Fire (Two Gang Members Arrested for Murder, Adonay Dixon and John Childs)

Do black lives matter when its black on black crime, or is that only used when they are killed by white police?

16 year old Arnesha Bowers, a promising, young, black high school student had her life cut far too short by the acts of two savage black gang members. Arnesha Bowers was found sexually assaulted, bound and strangled to death in her Northeast Baltimore home that had been set on fire in an attempt to cover up the crime. Investigators say that Arnesha Bowers knew her attackers and they used her cell phone records to track them down. This is just one in the long line of murders that have taken place in Baltimore; however, all the MSM and liberal politicians care about is going after police officers so to hide their pathetic and terrible record on crime.

Where is Al Sharpton protesting this heinous murder? Or does this murder not fit his narrative like Freddie Gray?

Arnesha Bowers_murdered

16-year-old girl was killed before her Northeast Baltimore home was set on fire, police said Monday, the latest child caught up in the surge of violence afflicting the city.

In Curtis Bay, officials canceled classes Monday at an elementary school after police found the body of a man outside. Four children were wounded during the weekend; three by gunfire.

“As a mother, to know that this violence has impacted our young people is stressing,” Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake said Monday night at an anti-crime walk in South Clifton Park.

“We have to be present in every neighborhood around the city. We have to be present as one unified. The police and the community together, and that’s what this is about.”

The City Council held a moment of silence Monday for Arnesha Bowers, a 16-year-old City College high school student whose body firefighters found in a burning house. She was one of six people killed in Baltimore between Saturday and early Monday, bringing the total for June to 13.

UPDATE I: Gang Members 23-year-old Adonay Dixon and 20-year-old John Childs Charged with Murder.

According to court documents, Childs and Dixon were hanging out with the teen at a party when they followed her home and plotted a burglary.

Investigators say Childs and Dixon broke into the home through a basement window, but were soon discovered by Bowers.

Childs told police while he ransacked the house for money, Dixon dragged the teen into the basement. Detectives say she was strangled with an electrical cord before the house went up in flames.

Childs and Dixon face multiple charges, including first-degree murder.

John Childs was released on bond from the Baltimore County jail on a burglary charge just five days before the murder.

Daron Dylon Wint, Suspected in Quadruple Washington, D.C Murder Arrested and Charged with Murder (Update: Police Say Wint May Not Have Acted Alone)

Daron Dylon Wint was arrested by police Thursday night and charged with the quadruple murder of the Savopoulos family and their house keeper.

34 year old Daron Dylon Wint was arrested Thursday night in Northeast Washington, DC by the Capital Area Regional Fugitive Task Force. Wint is the prime suspect in the quadruple murder of the  Savopoulos family and their housekeeper. Wint was charged with first degree felony murder while armed. According to accounts, Wint was tracked to New York City; however, was ultimately taken into custody at 11 p.m. on Rhode Island Avenue in Northeast Washington.  Savvas Savopoulos was the CEO of American Iron Works, where Darron Dylon Wint was reported to have been a previous  employee of the company.

Wint, 34, was arrested at 11 p.m. on Rhode Island Avenue in Northeast Washington, Metropolitan Police said. He is charged with first degree felony murder while armed. Members of the Capital Area Regional Fugitive Task Force made the arrest. He is slated to be arraigned later today.

Robert Fernandez, Commander of the Capital Area Regional Fugitive Task Force, says Wint’s arrest occurred after officers trailed two vehicles leaving a Maryland hotel. The capture apparently followed a missed opportunity for an arrest.

“We tracked him up to New York City and we barely missed him,” Fernandez said.

“It was a very fluid situation. We were planning on figuring out where he was in the hotel and then taking him down. When we were approaching, we realized he was in a vehicle.”

UPDATE I: Suspect in DC quadruple murder Arrested with four associates.

From the NY Post domes the following, Robin Ficker, an attorney who represented Daron Dylon Wint years ago, said he did not believe Wint could “hurt a fly.” What do you say now counselor?

The massive manhunt for a suspect in the horrific murders of a Washington businessman’s family and their housekeeper ended late Thursday when police grabbed suspect Daron Dylon Wint and four associates in the nation’s capital.

“Just got him,” D.C. Police Chief Cathy Lanier said shortly before 11:30 p.m.

The arrest capped a day that began with the revelation Wint had been identified in last week’s murders of Savvas Savopoulos, 46; his wife Amy, 47; the couple’s 10-year-old son Philip, and housekeeper Veralicia Figueroa, 57, by DNA left on pizza crust during what may have been an extended home invasion. Police traced Wint, a 34-year-old ex-con from Maryland, to Brooklyn, N.Y., and then back to Washington in the afternoon.

UPDATE II: Following the arrest, the Savopoulos family released a statement:

“We are thankful to law enforcement who have worked so diligently to bring about an arrest in this case. While it does not abate our pain, we hope that it begins to restore a sense of calm and security to our neighborhood and to our city. We are blessed to live in a community comprised of close circles of friends who have supported us and grieve with us.”

UPDATE III: D.C. Quadruple murder suspect Daron Dylon Wint once bragged ‘he was good with a knife’.

With a past record like this, it was only a matter of time before it escalated to murder.

Daron Dylon Wint, the man accused of slaying a wealthy family and a housekeeper inside their D.C. mansion, once bragged he was “good with a knife” and “not afraid of the police,” according to court records.

Wint, who was captured after a massive manhunt Thursday night, boasted about his ability to murder “easily” and has a pattern of alleged violence, records show.

He reportedly bragged while threatening to kill a woman and her infant daughter after he went to a nightclub with her in 2010, according to records.

“I’m going to come over there and kill you, your daughter and friends,” Wint told that woman, according to records. “The defendant advised he was good with a knife and could kill them easily and was not afraid of the police,” a detective said.

According to the Washington Post, Wint, who “became very violent,” threatened another woman and her family that “he will drop us one by one” over a parking dispute.

Again in 2010, Wint was arrested for carrying a 2-foot-long machete and a BB pistol outside the headquarters of American Iron Works, the company owned by Savvas Savopoulos.

Wint’s alleged violence began in his own family.

  •  In 2005, Wint was ordered to stay away from his father, stepmother and younger sister after allegedly threatening to shoot them.
  • His friends weren’t immune from his rages either; Wint punched and groped a former acquaintance and “drinking buddy” at the bar where she worked, alleged victim Jacinta Council told the Post. She eventually dropped the charged.
  • In 2006, he punched a housemate during a fight over loud music.
  • In 2006, he was arrested for stabbing a man.
  • Wint was arrested for assault charges at least three times in the late 2000s.

UPDATE IV: Police Say, Suspect in 4 gruesome D.C. killings might not have acted alone.

D.C. Police believe more than one person may have been involved in the gruesome slayings of the Savopoulos family and their housekeeper, and said the victims were held captive beginning the evening before they were killed.

The four were slain the afternoon of May 14, according to new documents filed in D.C. Superior Court, soon after an employee of Savvas Savopoulos dropped off $40,000 in cash at the home.

The entire attack was caught on the home’s surveillance security video.  Thankfully, the middle school teen was able to fight off her attacker before things became much, much worse. According to the police,  the sexual predator  was wearing a black beanie, a blue long-sleeved button-down shirt, light-colored cargo shorts and a dark messenger bag. He may have been riding a light-blue 10-speed bicycle as well.

Girl Attacked Pics_San Jose CA2

San Jose police are trying to track down a man who tried to sexually assault a woman in a grocery store restroom last month and this week forced his way into the home of a 13-year-old girl as she arrived home from school.

On Tuesday, the man followed the 13-year-old girl as she walked home from school. Police responded to the girl’s home in the 4000 block of Rio Vista Avenue and she told investigators he had forced his way through the front door of her home as she went inside. She fought him off and he fled before police arrived.

The girl then locked the door after he left, hid in a closet and texted her father: “DADDY COME HOME NOW. SOME GUY TRIED TO RAPE ME.”

Home surveillance video of assault

Authorities stated that the man in the video is wanted in another alleged sexual assault. In April, police said the man seen in the video had also followed a 28-year-old woman into a grocery store restroom and attempted to sexually assault her in West San Jose.

SJPD Ramps Up Search for Man in Attacks on Woman, Girl.

Home surveillance video shows the suspect pushing up against the girl and cornering her against a wall before the victim was able to get away.

“I had to fight this guy and I’m thinking, ‘Help me, help me please.’ That was actually the only thing that was going through my mind,” the teen girl said in an interview with NBC Bay Area on Wednesday.

The girl also said it appeared the man was recording the encounter on his phone.

The suspect left after the attack and fled before police arrived.

The girl said she took her phone and started texting her father and “running to the best hiding spot I could find.” She also reported the suspect had a strong smell of either alcohol or cologne.

The suspect remains at large. Anyone with information about him has been asked to call San Jose police Detective Brandon Scholten at (408) 277-4102. Anonymous tips can be left at the Crime Stoppers tip line at (408) 947-7867.

UPDATE I:  31 Year Old Mohammad Khaliqi Arrested.

Who would have thought that it was an individual with the name of Mohammad Khaliqi who tried to sexually assault a 13 year old girl? Thankfully, this POS was arrested. With all the misguided backlash against Pam Gellar and the ‘Draw the Prophet’ get-together, its only a matter of time before the liberal MSM expects an apology from the 13 year old for provoking the sexual assault.

San Jose police have arrested a man accused of forcing himself on a 13-year-old girl as she returned home from school.

The suspect has been identified as Mohammad Khaliqi, 31, of San Jose. Police arrested Khaliqi in the 1400 block of School St. in San Leandro on Friday morning.

He’s facing multiple counts of burglary, attempted sexual assault and false imprisonment.

Joshua Williams … Ferguson, MO’s “Peaceful” Protester Charged with Setting Fire at Berkeley Quik Trip During Riot

IT ALL DEPENDS ON HOW ONE DEFINES PEACEFUL: It is safe to say, anything you hear that the protesters are in Ferguson, Missouri, you can almost count on the opposite.

19 year old Joshua Williams has been arrested by St. Louis police on Friday after several local media outlets and store surveillance captured images of him trying to set a pile of wood on fire outside the QuikTrip on North Hanley Road in Berkeley early Wednesday during the riots following the police shooting of an armed black teenager.  According to court documents, Williams confessed to setting fires at the store in a videotaped interview.  Williams was charged with arson in the first degree, a felony. He is also charged with felony burglary and misdemeanor stealing for allegedly taking a lighter, gum and money from the store. Williams was being held Saturday on $30,000 bond.

One of the most frequently quoted and photographed Ferguson protesters was charged Saturday with setting fire to a Berkeley convenience store last week.

St. Louis County police arrested Joshua Williams, 19, of St. Louis, on Friday after several local media outlets and store surveillance captured images of him trying to set a pile of wood on fire outside the QuikTrip on North Hanley Road early Wednesday.

Williams confessed to setting fires at the store in a videotaped interview, according to court documents.

Police say Williams entered the QuikTrip shortly after looters shattered its glass doors during protests of the death of Antonio Martin, 18, who a police officer had shot earlier at the Mobil station across the street. Surveillance footage from the Mobil store shows Martin point what police say is a gun at a Berkeley officer before the officer fatally shoots him.

Williams can be seen in videos both inside and outside the looted QuikTrip, authorities said.

MSNBC profiled Joshua Williams as an advocate of peaceful protests. Of course they did. They also employ race hustler Al Sharpton and call him a journalist and doctored the George Zimmerman 911 calls to make him sound like a racist. Once again, those that the liberals make out to be heroes, turn out to be frauds.

Williams has been quoted as an advocate for peaceful protests.

An MSNBC profile of Williams in September quoted him as saying, “We have to come together as one and show them we can be peaceful, that we can do this. If not, they’re going to just want us to act up so (police) can pull out their toys on us again.”

Later, he continued: “I learned that we have to stand up and that you can’t get nowhere with violence but you can always move people without it.”

MSNBC – Portrait of a protester in Ferguson, Missouri:

When someone from the crowd threw a rock or a bottle, the officers fired rubber bullets and tear gas into the crowd of overwhelmingly peaceful protesters.

During one emotionally raw moment, Williams, also 18, screamed at officers until his eyes were red and wet. Beads of sweat bubbled from his brow and his body grew tense. His voice strained under the shrill of pain swelling from his throat.

As he stepped closer and closer to the police line, a young pastor, Willis Johnson, wrapped Williams in a hug and pleaded with him to calm down. Williams broke down in the older man’s arms and a single tear tumbled down each of their cheeks.

“I don’t know if most people will get over this or want to get over this,” Williams said, sitting across from the police station earlier this week. “I think we can be better if we can all come together. We might have to come together and show that we can work together and overthrow the system. But we have to come together as one and show them we can be peaceful, that we can do this. If not they’re going to just want us to act up so they can pull out their toys on us again.”
