Parked stolen car leads to meth and heroin bust

A Newport Beach Police officer located a stolen vehicle in a parking lot Tuesday night in the 2200 block of University Drive. It was occupied by two individuals, later identified as Lindsay Hannah Nicely, 26, Costa Mesa, and Emery Leonard Scott Jr., 30 Rancho Santa Margarita.  

The car, a Nissan Sentra, was reported stolen to the Buena Park Police Department on Sunday, April 22.  

With back-up and air support from HB-1, the suspects were taken into custody without incident.  

After a thorough field investigation, officers found large quantities of cocaine and methamphetamine, which it appears that Scott possessed for the purpose of sales. Nicely was also found to be in possession of heroin, syringes and a device for smoking heroin. A meth pipe was also found inside the vehicle. 

Scott was arrested on charges of grand theft auto, taking an auto without the owner’s consent, cocaine base for sale, controlled substance for sale and PRCS revocation. Bail was set at $30,000.

The old pass the stolen wallet on the way out doesn’t work 

On Tuesday, May 1 at 5 p.m., Newport Beach Police officers responded to a department store in the 600 block of Newport Center Drive in response to a report of a petty theft that had just occurred.

The incident involved a female and a male suspect, later identified as Jasmine Noemi Garcia, 20, of Los Angeles, and Francisco Javier Gastelumlara, 30, of Hesperia.  

The woman reportedly picked up and concealed a wallet from inside the store, and then left without paying for it. According to reports, she then passed the wallet to the man.  

Loss Prevention intervened, and was able to detain Garcia, but Gastelumlara fled on foot. He was detained shortly thereafter by an NBPD officer.  

The wallet, valued at $1,650, was recovered at the scene. Gastelumlara was additionally found to have wire cutters in his pocket. After a thorough field investigation, Gastelumlara was arrested for commercial burglary, receiving stolen property, burglary tools and conspiracy to commit a crime. Bail was set at $20,000.

“Heavily intoxicated” women arrested for a variety of charges, including child endangerment

Just before 4 p.m., Thursday, April 19, Newport Beach Police officers responded to a parking lot in the 700 block of W. Coast Highway. Employees of a nearby restaurant reported that two women appeared to be heavily intoxicated, and that they had small children in their care.  

When the first officers arrived on scene, they found Yareli Linda Sandoval, 27, of San Bernardino, in the driver’s seat of a white Chevrolet sedan, with four young children in the back seat, and found that she was exhibiting signs of intoxication.  

After a field sobriety exam, officers determined that she was driving under the influence. It was further determined that only one of the children was properly secured in a car seat.

Noemy Esmeralda Sandoval, 28, also of San Bernardino, was inside the restaurant. She was also heavily intoxicated. According to NBPD, Noemy was verbally combative with employees and was disheveled and only partially clothed. She was repeatedly asked to leave the location but failed to do so. When told that she would be arrested for trespassing if she did not leave, Noemy resumed her verbal altercation with restaurant staff, and then became physically combative with the police officer. 

After a thorough field investigation, each woman was arrested. Yareli Sandoval was arrested for DUI, with a prior, cruelty to children and driving while suspended or revoked. Her bail was set at $100,000.

Noemy Sandoval was arrested for battery on a peace officer, trespassing for refusing to leave property, disorderly conduct related to alcohol and cruelty to children. Her bail was also set at $100,000.

After three trials, man finally sentenced to life in prison for 1981 Newport Beach murder

James Andrew Melton, 65, Los Angeles, was sentenced Thursday, April 12 to life in state prison without the possibility of parole after his third trial for the 1981 murder of a 77-year-old victim he met through a magazine ad.

Melton formulated a plan to meet and rob older, wealthy men interested in romantic encounters. In October 1981, the defendant met the victim, 77-year-old widow Anthony Desousa, through a male companionship advertisement placed in The Advocate.

On October 12, 1981, the victim agreed to pick up Melton at the Disneyland Hotel and bring him back to his residence in Newport Beach. Once inside Desousa’s home, Melton bound the victim and then beat and strangled him to death. The defendant robbed the victim and burglarized his home, taking jewelry and several personal belongings before fleeing the scene in the victim’s vehicle.

On or about October 13, 1981, the Newport Beach Police Department (NBPD) received a request for a welfare check at the victim’s residence and discovered the victim’s body.

The Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) located the defendant with the victim’s vehicle and arrested Melton on October 6, 1981.

Melton was originally tried in November of 1982 and the jury convicted the defendant of burglary, robbery and first-degree murder, and found to be true the special circumstances of murder in the commission of a burglary and murder in the commission of a robbery on December 1, 1982.

On March 18, 1983, the defendant was sentenced to death. The California Supreme Court unanimously affirmed the conviction on March 3, 1988.

On January 19, 2007, United States District Judge Robert M. Takasugi granted a petition for writ of habeas corpus on the grounds that Melton was mentally incompetent at the time of his trial.

The court found that the defendant was improperly medicated with excessive doses of psychotropic drugs and as a result caused the defendant to lack a rational understanding of the proceedings against him and therefore deprived him of the ability to participate in his defense in a rational manner at trial.

On May 18, 2012, District Attorney Tony Rackauckas informed the court that the Orange County District Attorney’s Office would not be seeking death in the retrial.

On August 30, 2012, the Honorable Judge William Froeberg denied the defendant’s request to dismiss the case based upon his denial of a speedy trial.

In May of 2014, the case went to trial and resulted in a mistrial.

The case was re-assigned to the Honorable Greg L. Prickett and the defendant’s third trial began on May 14, 2017.

Thursday, Melton was found guilty of first degree murder, burglary and robbery, plus special circumstances including murder during the commission of a burglary and murder during the commission of a robbery.

His sentence is life in state prison without the possibility of parole.

Community prescription drug take-back day planned

On Saturday, April 28 from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m., the Newport Beach Police Department will be partnering with the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) for National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day at two locations: OASIS Senior Center at 801 Narcissus Ave. (Main Entrance) and Hoag Hospital, Sunset View Parking Lot (lower campus, first left when entering from PCH), 1 Hoag Road.

This event gives the public an opportunity to prevent pill abuse and theft by removing potentially dangerous expired, unused and unwanted prescription drugs from their homes. Anyone with medications to dispose of can bring them to either of the designated locations for quick and easy drop-off. The service is free and anonymous; no questions asked.

Medicines that are languishing in your cabinets are highly susceptible to diversion, misuse and abuse. The traditional methods of disposing of unused medicines – like flushing them down the toilet or throwing them in the trash –pose potential safety and health hazards, but National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day is a safe and straightforward solution.

For additional information on this event, visit the DEA’s website at www.dea.gov.
