CHINO HILLS – With all good intentions, many adjustments and allowances for social-distancing needed to be made between the recently-jailed, time-serving inmates, and staff during the Covid-19 pandemic.
What seemed like appropriate mandatory measures to prevent viral spread has spurned frightening, quickly-released arrestees’ interactions outside the walls.
Cutting back on the numbers of inmates, as well as the decision to send light-felony arrestees back into society has become a dark, extra burden for law enforcement and the community during this dilemma. Such is the case when Allan Carroll (35) of Chino Hills was arrested twice in 24 hours for aggravated felony trespassing.
First, on 04/26/2020, at about 3:42 PM, Chino Hills Station Deputies were dispatched to the 15000 block of Hibiscus Ave. regarding trespassing. SBSD-CHPD Deputies arrived on-scene and detained Carroll.
Deputies’ investigation found Carroll’s previous arrest for trespassing twice on the same property within the last 30 days. He also had since threatened to harm the victim.
Investigation evidence was obtained and Carroll was arrested for aggravated felony trespassing. Lack of pandemic distancing was the least of the worries, when the felon was let loose in compliance with the statewide Emergency Bail Schedule – as bail for most misdemeanor and felony offenses must be set at $0.
“Because of this criteria, Carroll was booked into West Valley Detention Center and released from custody following the booking process,” said Deputy F. Figueroa. Less than 24 hours later, on 04/27/2020, at about 10:31.AM, an emboldened Carroll returned to the confidential victim’s residence and again threatened harm.
Deputies arrived on-scene and detained Carroll. “After investigation, Carrol was arrested again for Aggravated Felony Trespassing,” said Deputy Figueroa.
Additionally,”for the safety of the victim, deputies requested a bail enhancement on Carroll that was approved by a Judge with the San Bernardino County Superior Court District,” said Deputy Figueroa. “Carroll was booked into West Valley Detention Center and his bail was set at $50,000.00.”
