Laguna Beach PD Cracks Down On Drum Circle

July 23, 2014 Comments Off on Laguna Beach PD Cracks Down On Drum Circle posted by: admin

The monthly, full moon drum circle has become a popular event in Laguna Beach, but the local police department may have tried to shut the most recent one down due to a predicted large turnout.

A spokesperson for the Laguna Beach Police said they deployed 12 officers, a fire department chef and two park rangers to the parking lots at Aliso Beach about two hours before the drumming was set to start.

Two free parking lots were blocked off, they said, and no one was allowed to enter.  Drummers said this was the first time anything like this has happened in the 12-years the circle has been taking place.

Early predictions indicated nearly 3,000 people had planned on coming out, according to officers, but the final tally, despite the lot closures, capped out at less than a thousand.

Although no one was arrested a spokesperson for the Laguna Beach PD said they did issue 15 citations.  Residents say they’re happy that officers were on hand because drug and alcohol consumption are likely consumed by those who attend the event.

If someone had been charged with drug possession, though, they would have been booked into the local jail where they would have been held until they could arrange for bail bonds.

Laguna Beach PD arrest Logs

June 23, 2014 Comments Off on Laguna Beach PD arrest Logs posted by: admin

Members of the Laguna Beach Police Department have been quite busy in the past several weeks.  Below are just a few of the incidents they’ve responded to.

On June 9th, officers were called to investigate a theft at a local residence.  The homeowner said she suspected a housekeeper may have stolen up to $800 in merchandise.  If this in in fact the case, the suspect will be booked into the Laguna Beach Jail where she will be held pending bail bonds.

The following day, authorities arrested a man for indecent exposure and outstanding warrants.  He also provided false information to police at the time he was taken into custody, which is a very big no no.

If that man is not bailed out of the local jail he’ll eventually be taken to the Orange County Jail in Santa Ana.  From there, he’ll remain in custody until a friend or family member is able to hire a bondsman or until his case is over.
