In recent days, the California Highway Patrol stopped a vehicle in Big Pine for seatbelt violations. Officers said it was later revealed that the 1996 Ford F150 pickup was stolen.

Officers also said that the driver of the vehicle, Gabriel Michael Anderson, 29 of Corona, was wanted on two outstanding felony warrants. The CHP said that both Anderson and his passenger, Alisa Erl, 28 of Perris, California, were arrested on a charge of stolen vehicle along with Anderson’s outstanding warrants.

Officers said they searched Anderson and found burglary tools in his pockets. They said a search of the vehicle revealed additional burglary tools, various bank cards with different names, several lists containing credit card information with security codes, social security numbers with attached names and birth dates, personal information, along with a State of California benefits identification card.

Officers also said they found a counterfeit one-hundred dollar bill. The CHP said they also found a neon-yellow fluid in a jar

      Wayne, another news source said they had recently relocated to Big Pine from Southern California. So not passing through but thinking small town cops must be easy to fool.

    A carstop is “Like a box of chocolates…you never know what you’re gonna get”. Counterfeiting tweaker crooks in a rollin’ stolen on welfare…CLASSIC !

    Roick O’Brian….You forgot also dumb enough to be rollin’stolen and not wearing their seatbelts..Maybe I’m wrong,but if your driving a stolen vehicle,have warrants, burglary tools,a stash of dope,a bunch of stolen identity items, AND your tweeking,isn’t it a good idea to wear your seat belts so maybe the cops won’t have an easy reason to pull you over in the first place ????

      Crooks generally aren’t the sharpest tools in the shed, and that’s often how they got to where they are to begin with.

    Thank you CHP!
    Very grateful to you, we don’t need that element around here.

    Yeah be sure to smile for the camera, no matter how hideous your actions are to have that picture taken…….when people smile in mug shot’s, the joke is on them…

    why does everybody have to weigh in and say “hey good job” for someone doing what they are intended to do? when is the last time you said that to a fast food worker? or construction worker, nurse, doctor or teacher??? they are under appreciated and serve the public as well.. I’ll just say it; the ones who are quick to give law enforcement a pat on the back are also the ones who dismiss and claim the current negative impacts that happen to the people as irrelevant…. I mean geez we live in a society where some people feel obligated to go out of there way to take a picture of a cop that is actually doing something to serve the public, and if you can’t understand that, then understand that not everyone lives in the same context that you do.

      I try to acknowledge people for the work they do on a regular basis. I would hope you do too. And that includes food workers, construction workers, healthcare workers, teachers, and even those who work in law enforcement.

      Perhaps you should take a dose of your own advice and understand that everyone doesn’t live in the same context that you do. And try to overcome the obvious prejudices you hold against the members of our communities who happen work in law enforcement.

    Aggressive Progressive…..Maybe it’s because,in many instances when LE “does their job”,with posts here on this site, and other places,there is always someone (or a few) that say how the parties being pulled over and/or arrested have had their “rights violated” with the traffic stop,what they had with them to warrant an arrest after the traffic stop,or with something they happened to find in the vehicle when it was searched…at least not being done with this story…..yet……..As far as the “smiling faces” on the mug shots,my guess is,this isn’t their first rodeo,and able to be smiling because they know how the court system works most of the time…in jail…..out on OR or low bail in a day or two….then either a slap-on-the-wrist fine or probation IF they show up for their court date….or just dodging the charges altogether by “relocating” to another town and area to start their (alleged) low-life stealing and theiving crimes all over again….

      Be careful Aggressive, Wayne will make you out to be a axe welding cop hater here for speaking your mind here.

    • The Aggressive Progressive October 28, 2014 at 9:32 am #

      Okay Wayne, I’ll say I hear you, but…… So your sayin when LE “does their job”, violating peoples rights comes with the territory? and who is this keeping safer? You or Me? yeah what a safer world we live in when our rights are violated…. You say when people get arrested there is always a certain few that will say their rights were violated, but what about those case’s when peoples rights are thoroughly violated by a bad cop? You willing to keep that same mental approach? I mean because in this day in age of cops/law enforcement, they will cherry pick facts to the point of justifying “doing their job”. I don’t know about you, but to me it is hard to see their presence in the light of serving the public when they will protect their own identity before the public.

      Trouble, first off, LOL! but I am not a cop hater, I just don’t trust them, or that they are here to serve me…. I mean who is really on our side nowadays, we live in a capitalistic society, don’t y’all understand the ramifications of?

    Aggressive Progressive….If you re-read my post,first sentence says “in many cases”,not all…There is nothing worse than,as you put it,a bad cop,thinking he can do as he pleases.But in MANY cases,those that get pulled over,no matter the reason,or what they are doing or carrying they are going to cry foul,claiming harrassment or their “rights being violated”,either hoping it’s a thin line traffic stop and the court system will just drop charges to make it go away….or,IN SOME CASES,looking for a cash-cow with a lawyer ready to take their case and try to turn things around and get their client off….and a reason for a million dollar lawsuit….case in point, if I remember correctly,some of those burning man recipients of citations or arrest last year,carrying a smorgasboard of illegal drugs…and probably under the influence of one or more of them at the time of the stop,then claiming it should be legal and O.K. to turn HWY 395 into a drug carrying- drug trafficing highway since so many of them do it heading to Reno that week-end of their event.

      I re-read it enough, all I have to say is Law Enforcement is a culture of criminals that have the power of the state. It’s not a few bad apples, its a culture of bad policing, perpetuated by our own fear, Period!

      • Mark October 29, 2014 at 7:55 am #

        It’s a culture of bad policing; boy you got that right

        • Benett Kessler October 29, 2014 at 9:20 am #

          We took out the You Tube link because there would have to be a lot more detail on the story before publishing it. BK

      Wayne , to be half fair to you here, I have to say my last statement was too harsh , and I realized that right after i hit submit. But, and that’s a big but, when I once spoke up agianst the police encouraging McDonald drive thru employees ( teenagers )to call 911 at the smell of alcohol , you blew me up for a week as a cop hater and a DUI supporter. I just wanted to let you know why I hold resentment agianst your opinions here.
