Redlands Police arrested a 17-year-old Redlands boy after he jumped in front of a Fire Department engine that was responding to a medical emergency early Saturday morning.

Medic Engine 261 was responding with emergency lights to a medical aid call at about 1 a.m. Saturday, March 2. As the engine head south on Olive Avenue near Cajon Street, the engineer noticed a pedestrian and began to slow the engine. He had come to a near stop when the 17-year-old jumped on the front bumper of the engine and began to strike the windshield with his head and fists, damaging the windshield.

The engine’s crew assisted the teen to a nearby grassy area to determine if he had been injured. The teen then began to struggle with the firefighters before being brought under control.

Redlands Police arrested a suspect in connection with three burglaries in the 40 block of North Michigan Street and the 40 block of San Gorgonio Drive over the past month.

Through neighborhood contacts, police identified 23-year-old Amanda Jasmine Smith, of Redlands as a suspect in the burglaries. Police also located surveillance video of Smith in the area just before and after one of the crimes.

The Redlands Police Department and the California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control will hold a free training for business owners who have a state license to sell or serve alcohol in the City.

The free training for owners, managers and employees who sell or serve alcohol includes information on state and local laws, owner and employee liability, community standards, checking ID, identifying and refusing sales to minors and identifying and refusing sales to intoxicated persons. Classes are scheduled Tuesday, March 26, from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. for businesses that sell alcohol for off-site consumption and 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. for bars and restaurants that sell alcohol for consumption on site. The training will be held at the Redlands Police Annex, 30 Cajon St.

Redlands Police are investigating a homicide after the body of a 23-year-old woman was found in an orange grove off Almond Avenue west of Alabama Street Tuesday night.

Police responded at about 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 26, after a resident discovered the woman’s body at the edge of the grove just south of Almond Avenue.

No further details are available at this time.

On Monday, March 11, author Leonard Pomfret will speak at the A.K. Smiley Public Library about “The Nanjing Princess,” his biography about his mother.

Pomfret spent 15 years taking the stories he heard from Kyung Pomfret's lips about her life in China during World War II, the Communist Party's rise to power, fleeing for Korea only to have a civil war split that country apart as well, and eventually settling in America.  She was a target in Japanese gun sights. She was beaten and abused by her own people. And she was put before a North Korean firing squad.

The subject is a descendant of the Lian family, whom the author said were advisers to Chinese emperors for centuries. According to the author, his grandfather was an adviser to Chiang Kai-shek, the last president before the Communists took power in mainland China. His mother’s family ties also led her to meet world leaders including Mahatma Gandhi, and Kim Gu, the president of the Korean group fighting for independence from the Japanese in the early 20th century.

This is a free event at 6 p.m. Monday, March 11, in the Assembly Room at the A.K. Smiley Public Library, 125 W. Vine St.

Four people were cited after buying alcohol for an 18-year-old Redlands Police volunteer outside four local businesses last week. The enforcement effort, known as a “shoulder tap operation,” was part of a $7,500 grant from the California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control.

On Saturday, Feb. 23, between 5 and 9 p.m., the 18-year-old male volunteer stood outside local businesses on Brookside Avenue, Orange Street, State Street and Redlands Boulevard and offered to give people entering the stores money to buy beer. Individuals were cited by police officers after providing the beer to the teen.

On Friday, Redlands Police conducted a warrant sweep to locate offenders who had failed to appear for court dates following DUI arrests in Redlands. Police arrested 26-year-old Blake Joseph Buoye, of Mentone, and 30-year-old Alexander March Radjagukguk, of Mentone for outstanding warrants.

Officers working a grant-funded “saturation patrol” arrested one person for driving under the influence. Darjaun Markise Gillispie, 21, of Redlands was arrested at just after midnight Sunday, Feb. 24, after officers pulled him over near the intersection of West Lugonia Avenue and Alabama Street.

On Monday, police conducted a grant-funded patrol targeting distracted drivers, issuing more than 30 citations for violations including talking or texting on a cell phone, driving without a seatbelt, failure to yield to a pedestrian in a crosswalk and speeding.

The Redlands Police Department Traffic Unit arrested one driver for driving under the influence during a DUI/drivers license checkpoint in the southbound lanes of Wabash Avenue at Brockton Avenue Friday, Feb. 15. The driver was arrested by a roving patrol unit attached to the DUI checkpoint after he ran onto a sidewalk near the intersection of Lytle Street and Cypress Avenue at about 10 p.m. Friday.

One driver was also cited for running a stop sign.

Officers on grant-funded traffic patrol also issued 21 citations Thursday, Feb. 14, including eight for stop sign violations, eight for speeding, three for using a cell phone while driving, and one each for expired registration and driving without a license. The patrols targeted the areas of Alabama Street, Industrial Park Drive, Citrus Avenue, Lincoln Street, Grove Street, San Mateo Street, Olive Avenue, Orange Street and the Santa Ana River Wash.

Due to an omission in posting the meeting agenda, the Redlands City Council meeting of Feb. 19 has been rescheduled to a Special Meeting on Wednesday, Feb. 20.  Closed session will begin at 5 p.m., followed by the public session at 6 p.m. The agenda remains unchanged and may be viewed on the City’s website at http://ci.redlands.ca.us/clerk/agenda/130220-agenda.pdf or at the City Clerk’s Office at 35 Cajon St., Redlands, CA.

Redlands Mayor Pete Aguilar has released the following statement following the death of San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Detective Jeremiah MacKay, a resident of our City:

“Our hearts go out to the family of San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Detective Jeremiah MacKay, a Redlands son who bravely gave his life on Tuesday in the line of duty. Last week Redlands was touched with tragedy when Officer Michael Crain, a Riverside Police Department officer who also had roots in our community was slain in the line of duty. We want to express our heartfelt sympathy to the officers and civilian employees of the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department and the Riverside Police Department. Your family of fellow public safety officers and the City of Redlands share your grief and mourn your loss."
