Pasadena Chef Arrested in Inglewood for Forgery, Burglary, Theft
INGLEWOOD, CA—Why did the chef cross the county? To forge, burglarize and steal, it seems.
Tony McClendon, 37, was arrested by Inglewood police officers along the 4200 block of West Century Boulevard in Inglewood. He was arrested on Monday, March 23 at approximately 2:30 p.m. and charged with seven felonies and misdemeanors, and was also found to have two outstanding warrants.
Police charged the Pasadena resident with forgery (470(A)PC), possession of a check with intent to commit forgery (475(C)PC), receiving known stolen property (496(A)PC), obtaining another person’s credit card (530.5(A)PC), petty theft (484(A)PC), burglary (459PC) and theft committed with forged access card (484G(A)PC. Of the two warrants, one was from LAPD for battery on a spouse (243(E)(1)PC) and the other was from L.A. County Sheriff’s Department for simple possession of a controlled substance (11377HS).
According to available records, he had been arrested as recently as January for vehicle theft, in November for vandalism, and in October for possession of marijuana, controlled substances, stolen property, and writing a bad check.
Bail for the new charges totaled $151,000. The two warrants added $165,000 for a grand total of $316,000.
The big question is: How much should the tip be for that bill? (At least $45,000??)
