FULLERTON – A 42-year-old San Jose man is in custody after Fullerton police arrested him on suspicion of posing as a photographer to lure two teenage girls into taking sexy photos.

Coopy Boyer was arrested on suspicion of contacting a minor with the intent to commit a sexual offense, according to the Fullerton Police Department. His bail was set at $100,000, according to sheriff’s arrest records.

On Saturday, two teenage girls told Fullerton police they were approached by a man, who identified himself as James Keong, in the area of Warner Avenue and Goldenwest Street in Huntington Beach. Police said he claimed to be a photographer with Zoom Exposure Photography and told the girls he wanted to take their photos.

The girls gave him their phone numbers and over the next several days, the man sent dozens of texts, each time becoming more suggestive about the types of photographs he wanted to take, police said.

He suggested he bring alcohol and photograph the girls playing dress-up while their parents were away, police added.

When the girls proposed having parents present, the man said there was no need for their parents to sign any waivers for him to shoot photos, police said. He offered to go to their house and pick them up.

According to police, a Nov. 24 meeting was set up in Fullerton where the man was to pick up the girls. Instead, the police were waiting. The man attempted to flee and tossed his cell phone out the car window before being blocked by police.

Police determined the arrested man’s real identity is Coopy Boyer and believe there may be other victims.

Anyone who may have been approached is urged to call Detective Ron Bair at 714-738-6762.

DAVID BRO, THE ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER

ANAHEIM – Police have arrested a man and a woman suspected of leading officers on a freeway pursuit that ended with a crash that injured four people and forced the closure of the southbound I-5 for about eight hours.

Ricardo Perez, 28, and Andrea Shanelle Brandon, 18, both of Anaheim, have been booked into jail on suspicion of possession of a stolen vehicle, possession of stolen property and felony evasion, Anaheim police Sgt. Bob Dunn said.

Officers tipped that a white Ford F-250 would be near South Sunkist Street and East Wagner Avenue saw the vehicle about 4 p.m. Friday, Dunn said. The driver of the pickup, who police later identified as Perez, reportedly refused to stop, leading to a high-speed pursuit on the 57 and 5 freeways.

The chase ended about 16 minutes later on the southbound I-5 at Camino de Estrella, where the pickup collided with a Kia Optima, struck a divider, then flipped and rolled several times.

Perez, who was thrown from the vehicle during the crash, was taken to a hospital in critical condition. He was arrested after being released from the hospital Monday, Dunn said.

Brandon and another occupant of the pickup were taken to a hospital with lesser injuries.

Brandon was arrested after her release from the hospital Friday night, Dunn said. The third occupant of the pickup, who authorities identified only as an adult male, was not arrested.

The driver of the Optima with was taken to a hospital with minor injuries.

The southbound lanes of the I-5 were closed for eight hours after the crash, leading to significant delays during the commute hours a day after the Thanksgiving holiday and angering many motorists.

CHP officials Sunday said the closure was needed to allow investigators from outside the area to be called in to preserve evidence that could be used to prosecute the driver of the pickup or defend the agency against litigation.

RIALTO: Man convicted in bus driver’s killing

orange county bail bonds

Larry Kester, 47, of Fontana was fatally stabbed May 7, 2010 while driving an Omnitrans bus in Rialto.

A jury that convicted a Rialto man of murdering a 2010 Fontana bus driver in 2010 will next have to decide whether he is insane.

Robert Darrell Johnson, 36, was found guilty of murder Tuesday, Nov. 27, for stabbing an Omnitrans driver on board a bus near a busy Rialto intersection in May 2010. The stabbing caused the bus to crash into a tree.

The jury also found a special allegation true that he used a knife.

Lawrence Kester, 47, was the father of eight and driving his normal route on Base Line from San Bernardino to Fontana when Johnson attacked him on the bus, which was carrying four other passengers. Authorities said the attack was without warning or provocation. No other passengers were injured.

Police said Johnson ran through a bank, where he dropped a knife, and into a supermarket, where he was arrested.

Johnson pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity to the murder charge. A jury is set to return Wednesday to begin hearing evidence in the sanity phase of the trial.

Leading up to the trial, a judge had initially ruled Johnson incompetent to stand trial, based on two doctor’s reports on his mental fitness. Johnson was ordered placed in a psychiatric facility and to undergo medication.

He was reevaluated in May, where doctors reported he was stabilized on medication and the judge found him fit to stand trial, according to court records. He had no prior criminal record in Riverside or San Bernardino counties.

Johnson could face up to a life sentence for the murder charge.

Brothers stabbed in Costa Mesa fight

Article Tab: park-mesa-costa-crimeCOSTA MESA – Two brothers were stabbed during a fight at an apartment complex Sunday night.

Costa Mesa Police officers were called to an apartment building at 1760 Pomona Ave. at 11:40 p.m. after receiving reports of a fight with a knife.

Officers were then notified by employees at Hoag Memorial Hospital Presbyterian that two men had been taken there with stab wounds. One of the men suffered life-threatening injuries, and was taken to Western Medical Center in Santa Ana, Dieball said.

He was in critical condition Monday morning. The second man suffered a stab wound to his arm.

Officers went to the hospital to interview the brothers, but the information they have received has been vague and not helpful, officials said.

“We don’t know who the suspect is or why the fight started,” Dieball said. “Either (the victims) don’t know or they are being uncooperative.”

Detectives are continuing to follow several leads, he said.

SWAT team responds to Stanton gas station

STANTON – A man called police early Saturday morning to report a Chevron gas station robbery, then locked himself in the station’s inside bathroom and claimed he had an assault weapon, Sheriff’s authorities said.

Neither was true, sheriff’s discovered, after a SWAT team busted into the bathroom after a three-hour standoff.

Officers received the robbery report around 3:30 a.m. and upon arriving at 10961 Beach Boulevard followed a suspicious car out of the station believed to have been connected to the call, investigators said.

Officers found a concealed handgun on a 23-year-old male in the vehicle and two other unarmed female passengers. The man was arrested.

Deputies went back to the Chevron after they were unable to connect the passengers to a robbery, Sheriff’s Lt. Jim England said.

The gas station’s owners told deputies that no robbery had occurred.

Officers then discovered that a 25-year-old man had locked himself inside the station’s bathroom and claimed that he had an assault rifle, England said.

The man, who Sheriff’s authorities believe made the call claiming that a robbery was in progress, refused to unlock the bathroom door.

The Orange County Sheriff’s Department SWAT team was called around 4 a.m., investigators said.

Negotiators and officers stayed at the Chevron until 7 a.m., when SWAT officers entered the bathroom, England said.

Sheriff’s found that the man did not have a weapon.

He was arrested on suspicion of a misdemeanor offence of reporting a false crime, a felony vandalism charge for causing more than $400 of damage to the bathroom, and resisting arrest.

The man has a history of medical issues and was taken to the hospital before booking, England said.

His identity will not be released until after he has been booked, England said.
