INGLEWOOD —Religion may be “the opiate of the masses,” but opium is apparently blissful for motorists.
Adriana Gazcon-Cervantes, 32, was apprehended by Inglewood Police Department (IPD) officers for a number of charges involving opium, alcohol and prior warrants. The Los Angeles resident was arrested on Thursday, September 9 at approximately 9:30 p.m. at the intersection of West Manchester Boulevard and South La Brea Avenue.
Within a minute’s walk of the intersection is IPD headquarters, city hall and the Inglewood locale of Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department (LASD).
The 5’4”, 140-lb. resident from the 6300 South Harcourt Avenue was charged with four violations: felony possession of a controlled substance (11377(A)HS), possession of an opium pipe or any similar device (11364(A)HS), driving with a license (12500(A)VC and possession of an open container while driving (23223(A)VC). She also had two prior warrants. Both were failures to appear, and one was from IPD where as the other was from LASD.
Bail for the four new violations was set at $10,385. The bail set for the two prior warrants $1,936.
In any case, waking up in jail after a night of opium and drinking is not a dream anyone wants.
