Preloader Gets Popped for Possession, Vehicular Violations

INGLEWOOD, CA—Sometimes the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, and sometimes that tree is an international airport while that apple is drug trafficking.

Melissa Monet Shackleford, 26, was arrested by Inglewood police officers on Saturday, January 3 at approximately 11:10 a.m. She was stopped along the 10800 block of Crenshaw Boulevard—a stretch of street that is notorious for drive-bys, shooting homicides—and drug arrests.

The self-proclaimed preloader was charged with driving with a suspended license (14601.1AVC), obstructing/resisting police officers (148(A)(1)PC), operating an unregistered motor vehicle on a highway (4000(A)VC), improper display of vehiclular license plates (5200VC), simple possession of a controlled substance (11377HS) and bringing a controlled substance/paraphernalia into a jail or prison (4573PC).

According to United Parcel Service (UPS) employee chatboards such as (which is “not sponsored by UPS”), a preloader appears to be an employee classification at UPS that pays approximately $9.50 an hour.

The total bail for the Inglewood woman was set at $46,075.

It is going to be many years of preloading before she makes that bail.
