Long Beach Man Arrested for Bike, Drug Violations

HAWTHORNE, CA—Some drug dealers drive flashy sports and luxury cars, whereas others try to appear a lot less classy or are simply not business-savvy enough to afford bicycle reflectors and lighting.

David Manuel Hernandez, 36, was apprehended by Hawthorne police officers on Monday, February 23 at approximately 11 p.m. at the corner of 129th Street and Jefferson Avenue in Hawthorne. He was picked up just one block from two schools: Washington Elementary and Hawthorne Middle Schools. He was charged with transporting/selling controlled substances (11379(A)HS), possession of a controlled substance:methamphetamine (11378HS), simple possession of a controlled substance (11377HS), obstructing/resisting a peace officer (148(A)(1)PC), failing to have required bicycle lighting at night (21201(D)1VC) and operating a vehicle on a sidewalk (HAMC 10.60.01).

Bail for the unemployed Long Beach resident was $80,525. The two largest amounts, $30,000, were for the transport and meth possession, and the smallest was $25 for the lack of bike lighting.

Perhaps next time he’ll take the bus or the train to deliver his drugs, and hope that won’t be the day the sheriffs board with drug-sniffing dogs.
