Los Angeles Electrician Gets Multiple Vehicle Theft Charges

HAWTHORNE, CA—Was his occupation as an electrician a cover for casing for burglary and/or theft?

Sam Ezy Higginbotham, 37, was apprehended by Hawthorne police officers for a number of vehicle theft charges and other violations on Tuesday, October 28 at approximately 5:15 p.m. He was stopped along the 4000 block of West 133rd Street in Hawthorne.

He was charged with grand theft auto—GTA—(487(D)PCGTA), taking a vehicle without owning it (10851(A)VC), obstructing/resisting/etc. an officer (148(A)(1)PC), receiving/etc. known stolen property (496(A)PC) and vehicle theft with a prior felony (666.5(A)PC).

Records show that Higginbotham has been arrested multiple times over the past several years, including a charge of burglary and grand theft in 2007. He was also charged with several drug possession offenses, and outstanding warrants. His most recent was a July arrest by Hermosa Beach Police for possession of a controlled substance.

Bail for the current charges was set at $35,000 for the GTA, $25,000 for taking the vehicle, $10,000 for the obstruction, $20,000 for stolen goods and $20,000 for felony-related violation.

Then again, one couldn’t imagine getting enough money for a single stolen vehicle as would cover all that cash needed to post bail and pay an attorney. Perhaps it was just for the pun of an electrician getting multiple “charges” that he decided to do it?
