Measure "B" in the Hermosa Beach Municipal Election November 5, 2013


"Several residents have been asking about a police pursuit on The Strand. Although there was no actual pursuit, this should clear up any questions:

On Thursday, 11-07-13, at approximately 11pm HBPD officers were out on a foot patrol of Lot A (the large parking lot behind Sharkeez/American Junkie etc). The officers saw a subject who was driving recklessly in the parking lot. As they contacted him and asked for his ID the subject took off, turning west on 10th Street and then south on The Strand. The suspect (accompanied by a female passenger) sped down The Strand at speeds between 60-80 mph. They both ditched the vehicle once in Redondo and ran towards the Chart House. Assisting officers arrived a few seconds later and located both the suspect and his female passenger hiding. The suspect was positively ID'd by the initial officer and taken into custody.

Arrested was Chad McZeal, a 27 year old resident of Inglewood. He was charged with 2800.2 CVC - Felony Evading, 23152 CVC - DUI, 14601.2 CVC - Driving on a Suspended License for a prior DUI, and 2 outstanding warrants for his arrest. He is being held on $120,000 bail."

From Hermosa Beach Neighborhood Watch

"On Monday 10-14-13, at approximately  3:35p.m., a female juvenile was walking northbound near the 2000 blk of Power Street. As she approached 20th Street, an unknown male in a white van traveling westbound 20th turned in front of her (to N/B Power); the male subject said, "Hi". The female juvenile did not respond to the male subject and he said, "Oh, great, now you're ignoring me".
The female juvenile then turned and ran to her friend's home to contact HBPD for assistance. Officers responded but did not locate the van. The female juvenile described the van as white in color and no windows along the side. The male subject could only be described as possibly Caucasian and he did not have an accent. Anyone with information is urged to contact Detectives (310)318-0360."
