4 More Cadets Arrested in Connection With Stolen LAPD Cruisers; Cadets Made Traffic Stops: Chief Beck

A police vehicle is crashed near the intersection of East 77th and San Pedro streets in Los Angeles on June 14, 2017, leading to the arrest of a cadet driver. Command officers at those stations are interviewing every cadet under their supervision – more than 100 cadets at each post – and will meet with cadets’ parents, Beck said. The investigation comes after police learned two patrol vehicles were missing on June 14, and then officers spotted them being driven in tandem on streets in South L.A., prompting a nighttime pursuit. The three initially arrested cadets were suspected of evading police among other crimes; the new cadets were arrested on suspicion of “joyriding” in police vehicles, Beck said Tuesday. The drivers separated and then crashed at two different locations. After dozens of interviews were conducted by investigations, Beck on Tuesday told commissioners the cadets had made traffic stops on “a couple of occasions”; he told reporters one or “possibly two” traffic stops occurred. Four more cadets have been arrested in connection with the thefts of police cruisers from two LAPD stations, and some of those cadets are believed to have made traffic stops on members of the public, Chief Charlie Beck announced Tuesday.

Last week, the chief said he believed the cadets may have impersonated police officers. At least one of the vehicles was driven for a significant amount of miles.
