Oil Refinery Employee Greets New Year with Plethora of Felony Charges
HAWTHORNE, CA—What worse way to get into the new year than by eschewing any resolutions and going right for a handful of serious felonies?
Derrell Bryson Seymore, 31, was arrested by Hawthorne police officers on Tuesday, January 6 at approximately 2:20 a.m. The oil refinery employee was picked up along the 13000 block of Lemoli Avenue, a thoroughfare that runs north/south, in Hawthorne. The address is a cul-de-sac that is blocked to the north by a huge shopping complex separated from the residential area by a ditch with signs proclaiming it to be unlawful to enter the ditch area.
The Carson resident was charged with eight violations, seven of which were felonies: grand theft auto (487(D)PCGTA), attempting to commit 496 crime—which means any crime involved with receiving stolen goods—(496(D)PC), accessing card account information with intent to sell, transfer or acquire a credit or debit card without the true cardholder’s consent (484E(D)PC), taking a vehicle without owning it (10851(A)VC), carrying a loaded firearm in public (25850(A)PC), ownership/possession of a firearm by a convicted felon/addict (29800(A)1PC), carrying a concealed weapon in a vehicle (25400(A)1PC) and the one misdemeanor, driving with a suspended or revoked license (14601.1AVC).
The total bail was set at $231,300.
One wonders how much oil refinery employees are paid if the occasional employee is given to acts of armed grand theft in an area filled with oil refineries.
