MANHATTAN BEACH – A Lancaster man and six others were arrested in connection with the smash-and-grab robbery of a jewelry store in Manhattan Beach, police said announced.
The robbery occurred around 6 p.m. Wednesday, March 22, at Pasha Fine Jewelry, 217 Manhattan Beach Blvd., according to the Manhattan Beach Police Department.
“Multiple suspects entered the jewelry store, used hammers to break display cases, and fled the store with miscellaneous merchandise,” police said in a statement. “The suspects entered awaiting vehicles and fled the scene southbound in an alley. Multiple suspects were armed with what appeared to be handguns. No shots were fired.” About 7:25 p.m. Wednesday, Manhattan Beach officers tried to stop a vehicle believed connected with the crime, police said.
“The driver failed to yield and a pursuit was initiated,” police said. “The pursuit ended in the city of Los Angeles, and five adult suspects were arrested. Jewelry from the robbery was located within the vehicle.”
In a separate traffic stop shortly afterward, two 17-year-old suspects were taken into custody, police said. “Jewelry and other items taken in the crime were located in this vehicle as well,” police said.
Arrested were: Twuan Walker, 18, of Lancaster; Alan Daniels, 24, of Los Angeles; Eworth Sutherland, 23, of Los Angeles; Johndean Blocker, 22, of Los Angeles; Jamil Edwards, 23, of Los Angeles; and a 17-year-old boy and a 17-year- old girl, both of Los Angeles. The suspects are facing various possible charges, police said.

In China this does not happen. In China there is no presumption of innocence when it is illogical to presume innocence when logic shows you are guilty. In China there are no silly outdated 250 year old bill of rights, amendments and constitutions. In China, you do the crime, you do the time. And before they execute you, they say “we show you good time.”

Was that sarcasm or lunacy? I hope it’s sarcasm.

It was just a misunderstanding.
Keep him. Lancaster doesn’t want him back.

This is unfortunate for these liberals. And they were just about to be discovered as rappers.

As a wild guess, the half of them that are old enough to vote are probably not politically active, so your random “must be liberals” claim just makes you look like an idiot.
don’t over think it simpleton.

“simpleton”? That’s funny. You wish you had half the intellect that Tim has. As usual, you know not of which you speak! But thanks for giving us something to mock and ridicule.
Convicted felons don’t have much intellect. Simpleton.

LOL…as someone who has actually met a lot of convicted felons I would say they represent the extremes…both extremes…better than the general population on that particular characteristic. The highest concentration of really smart people I have been exposed to was in prison, other than naval nuclear power school. Unlike nuke school, prison also houses an inordinate share of serious rocks. Not a place that selects for the ordinary, for sure.
