Community: Man Arrested After Gun Threats in Movie Theatre
Hi Bel-Air Association,
A movie patron approached theatre security Sunday and said he was fearful of a moviegoer inside a showing of “The Dark Knight,” because he was shouting about a gun and Colorado.

While Norwalk Sheriff’s Station deputies were called, an AMC Norwalk 20 Theatre security officer went inside the movie theatre and saw that the 52-year suspect had a backpack and was on his knees in the second row of seats.

Los Angeles County Sheriff’s deputies arrived and detained the suspect.

Several witnesses confirmed that the suspect had created a disturbance in the theatre at 5:15PM, at first by shouting that the movie had not yet started. Suspect Clark Tabor then allegedly held his cell phone in the air and yelled “Does anyone have a gun?” and “I should go off like in Colorado.”

The witnesses said that they were afraid the suspect was going to remove a gun from his backpack and shoot them.

No weapons were found during the search of the suspect, the movie theatre, and surrounding area. There were no guns found during a search of the suspect’s residence.

Suspect Tabor was arrested for Making Criminal Threats, a felony (422(a) of the California Penal Code). He is being held in the Men’s Central Jail of the Los Angeles County jail system on $50,000.00 bail plus unrelated warrants. His next scheduled court date is Tuesday, July 24, 2012, at Bellflower Court.

“A witness saw and heard strange activity and reported it immediately, said Captain Pat Maxwell, Norwalk Sheriff’s Station. “This is exactly the kind of help law enforcement needs to help protect the public. 'If You See Something, Say Something.’ The greatest deterrent to crime is often a phone call to law enforcement by a person who sees something that just doesn't look right.”

Partner to prevent or report crime by contacting your local Sheriff’s Station. Or if you wish to remain Anonymous, call “LA Crime Stoppers” by dialing 800-222-TIPS (8477), or text the letters TIPLA plus your tip to CRIMES (274637,) or using the website http://lacrimestoppers.org/

Advisory: Joint Counter Terrorism Awareness Workshop 2012
Hi Bel-Air Association,
July 31, 2012 NR12358an

Joint Counter Terrorism Awareness Workshop 2012

Los Angeles: The Los Angeles Police Department in partnership with the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Department of Homeland Security, and the National Counterterrorism Center will host a two-day workshop on terrorism and how law enforcement, first responders and other civilian stakeholders can remain vigilant and partner together to root out those who conspire to harm our communities and great nation. The conference will begin on Tuesday, July 31, at the JW Marriott Hotel Diamond Ballroom, L.A. LIVE, 900 West Olympic Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA 90015.

Long before 9-11, we have faced threats from individuals and groups that wish to impose terror on our communities. The events of 9-11 solidified in many minds that the threat of terrorism is real and upon our doorstep. The recent tragedy in Colorado is a sobering reminder that terrorism can come from within our community and we must work collectively to find ways to prevent such incidents from occurring.

LAPD is a regional leader in counter terrorism, prevention and response in this Southern California region. Our ability to defeat the threat and respond to any incidents is incumbent upon our ability to work together as a region.

The Joint Counter Terrorism Awareness Workshop Series (JCTAWS) is a ground breaking effort to bring together hundreds of partners in the public and private sector to address and discuss the potential threats to communities. JCTAWS brings together the leaders in counter terrorism, tactics, fire, emergency management, and the private sector in a collaborative fashion.

The purpose of JCTAWS is to improve the way we prevent, analyze and respond to threats and attacks as a region. The strategies and tactics reflect a regional vision rather than a city specific plan. This year’s JCTAWS conference will be the largest in the United States to date.

This is a private event, and members of the public will not be admitted. Credentialed members of the media are welcome to attend the media briefing and opening remarks beginning promptly at 8:00 am, in the Diamond Ballroom Lobby, JW Marriot Hotel, 900 West Olympic Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA 90015.

For further information about the event please contact LAPD Media Relations Section at
(213) 486-5910.

Recap of Coyote Reports by Bel-Air Neighbors



Please see below a recap of recent reports from  Bel-Air neighbors:


1. Between the 11500 - 11600 blocks of Bellagio Road, a coyote (big) just jumped in our yard at 12:30pm. We had our dog outside swimming with 3 of us and we were able to scare it away by yelling. Thankfully our dog was beside us.

2. In the 200 block of N. Bentley, a resident's 15 pound dog was on her porch.  At noon, a large coyote jumped her fence and dragged her dog off the porch and 50 yards away into the garden.  The housekeeper heard the noise, ran outside and was able to scare the coyote away.  The dog underwent major surgery on Saturday--has extensive injuries, but the owner hopes to take her dog home today from the hospital.  The dog had to have part of his larynx removed and has a tube placed temporarily in his neck.

3. There were three of four coyotes in front of our house between the 1500 - 1600 blocks of Stone Canyon at 2:35AM. They were making making a kill. So noisy.

4. My best friend lost her Pomeranian in early July to an attack in her back yard on Ambazac.  The coyote attacked her small dog at 10:30 AM and dropped him to scale the fence and get away after her housekeeper started yelling. The coyote escaped to the Bel Air golf course.

People should know their pets aren't safe in the daytime.
 
5. On July 2nd at 1am, I saw 2 coyotes walking North on Stone Canyon. I followed them until they turned on Rocca Way and jumped behind a house. They jumped in the bushes on Rocca way and disappeared. Later that evening I heard howling from the coyotes and dogs barking in the neighborhood.
The coyotes did not look full grown and maybe only 1.5 the size of a Cocker Spaniel.
