Carpenter Busted for Taking Drugs Into Jail, Drug Possession and Improper Parking
INGLEWOOD — Ernesto Hernandez, 24, was popped by Inglewood police officers for a number of drug charges, one warrant, and one for improper parking violation (INMC 3-53).
Inglewood Municipal Code 3-53, identified above as INMC 3-53, is defined as “Unless permitted by other provisions of this Article, it shall be unlawful for any person to stand or park a vehicle in a roadway other than parallel with the edge of the roadway headed in the direction of traffic and with the right hand wheels of the vehicle within eighteen inches of the curbline or edge of the roadway.” He must have either parked at quite an angle, or facing the wrong direction.
The more serious charges, however, were for possession/purchase of cocaine base (11351.5HS), possession of a controlled substance (11378HS), possession of marijuana less than 28.5 grams (11357(B)HS), and taking a controlled substance into a jail or prison (4573PC), meaning he probably didn’t empty his pockets completely before he was booked. Hernandez, who reported his occupation as carpenter, was also found to have a warrant issued by Inglewood PD for failure to appear in court (853.7PC).
The total bail for the charges and warrant came out to be $86,606. At the typical one-tenth required to post bail under a bond, such a “tithe” is still sure to be high for a working man.
