INGLEWOOD — Desperate times call for desperate measures, and in this on-going recession, it appears that anything goes.
Jose Inez Avila, 25, was arrested by Inglewood Police Department officers on Tuesday, June 10 at approximately 4 p.m. The self-proclaimed “sales clerk” was stopped at the corner of Market Street and Ivy Street for violating California vehicle code 27007VC, “playing loud music from [an] automobile.” A number of other charges were also made: a warrant issued by Huntington park police for driving while license is suspended, and two new charges: possession of marijuana (less than 1 oz.) while driving and carrying a loaded firearm.
Total bail for the Los Angeles resident was set at $65,095: $35,000 for the firearm, $30,000 for the suspended license, $70 for the marijuana charge and a pithy $25 for the loud music.
While it is unknown the area of expertise in which Avila may be a “sales clerk,” the charges brought by police suggest that his loaded firearm may be a typical tool in his trade.
