HAWTHORNE, CA—He lives in the state of Washington, but he gets arrested and collects warrants in southern California.
Abelardo Sepulveda, 25, was arrested by Hawthorne police officers on Wednesday, January 7 at approximately 1:30 p.m. He was picked up along the 3700 block of Rosecrans Avenue in Hawthorne. He was charged with failure to present identification (40302(A)VC), driving without a license (12500(A)VC) and failure to properly use seatbelts (27315(D)(1)VC).
Bail for the three arrests totaled $420.
He also had a number of warrants. From Inglewood, a charter city that is the northern-most South Bay city, issued one for driving with a suspended license (14601.5AVC) and which added $26,000 to the bail amount. Hermosa Beach, which is a South Bay city along the shore, also issued one for his driving without a license (12500(A)VC), which put another $250 on the tour’s tab. And there was a third one from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s department (LASD), which has jurisdiction throughout South Bay. There was no bail amount posted for the LASD warrant.
It is unknown if the self-proclaimed carpet installer was in the area for work or for collecting warrants and arrest charges, but with a grand total bail of $26,670, he’ll be down here for a long time to come.
