I am the owner of a small business in Southside of Santa Ramona Valley.  I came to Santa Ramona when I was 19, looking for my sister, who I ended up finding.  I didn't have a lot in the way of experience working or education, but I got lucky and Frank Castle gave me a job at an auto shop.  I worked hard to hone my skills and save my money to buy the Lock N Load pawn shop in Southside, sinking every dime I had in it.  No sooner had I succeeded, then I saw how the police in this town failed me.  

I run a legit business.  

I'm not perfect by any measure of the word, but my business is clean and I have a great relationship with the ATF, passing every inspection without a single issue.  I've never been arrested, I've never been questioned, I've never been in trouble with the SRPD or any Police Department.  

Considering those facts above, please read the following course of events:

February 2019, Officer Ling Lee of the SRPD walked into my shop, Lock N Load, in Southside...

Investigative reporter Clark called to find out what happened, and why the power seemed to be cut off at the time of this event. An unidentified individual at the PD provided the answers, 

"On the afternoon of 07/28/19 a SWAT team from SRPD arrived at Lock 'n' Load in Rookery street to serve a search warrant we had for the premises and all premises associated with a particular individual known to reside/work there. The warrant was lawful and authorized by Judge Justice. For legal and confidentiality reasons I am not at liberty to discuss the conditions of the warrant or what it was in regard too.

For a few months now SRPD has been investigating what is now believed to be are 'cults' springing up around town. A large amount of esoteric graffiti has been appearing on walls and surfaces all over SRV. The department has been logging these in the hopes of understanding what they meant. “The graffiti is all esoteric and satanic in nature, which is when we started to believe we were dealing with a cult.” said Lt A Brentt. “Due to some of the symbols being placed on top of each other or in position of opposition, its our current belief that we maybe dealing with two rival cults or a rouge faction...

Santa Ramona civilians are bemoaning the loss of their church located on Vestral Avenue, tucked to the side of the cities Dam.
The church burned down in a devastating fire and has been unable to be salvaged, sadly demolished this week. However the reasons for the church's destruction is still unclear and an on going investigation is taking place under the SRPD.

Santa Ramona Chronicles spoke to the SRFD who successfully put out the fire the night the church burned.

"There was a fire investigation and while our findings ain conclusive, we are leaning toward that this could be an arson attack against the church." FD Chief Dimitri Rousseau announced to the Chronicles.

"There is also some strange discoveries we found when investigatin'. An altar piece fashioned into a symbol such as the many that have been plastered round town, some blood aroun' the altar area and a cross hangin upside down." The Chief admitted when questioned but also added,

"Right now the SRPD are investigating and I'm sure t...

With the election of a new mayor, the first SRPD Community Review Board can be selected. In order to form this board, we need volunteers who would be willing to be responsible for the following:

Receive complaints from community members in regards to SRPD officers and personnel

Review complaints, including those filed by SRPD

Determine if complaints should be investigated by Internal Affairs, which is handled by the DA's office or if they should be dismissed without investigation

Review disciplinary decisions on sustained complaints reached by internal Affairs and carried out by SRPD Command staff. 

If not in agreement of the disciplinary actions recommended by IA and taken by SRPD Command on sustained complaints, those on the Community Review board may send the issue to the Governor for a final review.  IA investigations that involve criminal charges are not subject to review by CRB.

My Fellow Citizens of Santa Ramona,

Recently a local native of this great city and one of the SRPD’s finest, Officer Torrance Smith was shot and killed in action. I stand with his family deeply impacted by this loss. Now I want to tell you a story that is deeply personal to me. 

I was neighbors with the Smith family, and Officer Smith’s brother was one of my very dear friends. He loved Basketball and was an avid supporter of the Los Angeles Clippers. He loved his family and went to College achieving a Bachelors of Forensic Science at the University of California in Davis. Of all of us, Officer Smith was the first to marry, having married his High School Sweetheart immediately following his graduation from SRVHS. With his wife Tanisha, he raised two sons. And now, two young boys are without a father because of someone’s selfish act.

Officer Smith knew the risks, but he was taken too soon at only 29 years of age. He didn’t have to die this way. So now I speak to the person responsible for h...

An SRPD police officer who had been on the force less than a six months after transferring from LA, died of a gunshot wound to the head on Wednesday after being called out to attend an incident with other officers, police said.

Torrance Smith, 29, was pronounced dead at the scene, after a suspect opened fire on him and his fellow Officers as they attempted to administer emergency aid to a gun shot victim, Lieutenant Azariah Brentt said during a very brief news conference on Thursday.

Three officers were on a call out, after a caller had phoned 911, to report a active shooter and stating she had heard screaming in sewers under the Retro Drive area of the city.

“We found a manhole cover lifted and managed to gain entry via a service ladder. After locating the victim with another female, we started emergency aid while we awaited the EMT's getting down to her.” Lieutenant Azariah Brentt said. The witness was able to inform the Officers that there was woman with a gun in the adjoining room. T...
