Redlands Police arrested a suspect Monday believed responsible for at least eight holdups from Redlands to Chino over the past six months.

Shortly before 7 a.m. Monday, June 17, police received a report of an armed robbery at the USA Gas, 902 Orange St. The robber entered the business with a black handgun. He fled with cash from the register, as well as cash and a cell phone from employees.

Redlands Police arrested a 23-year-old Yucaipa man suspected of sexually assaulting a 17-year-old Loma Linda girl in a Redlands motel room. Earlier a 31-year-old Colton man was arrested for pimping, pandering and human trafficking in the case.

Reginald Lamar Gatrail Lockhart was arrested in Highland Wednesday, June 19. He is being held at West Valley Detention Center in Rancho Cucamonga on $150,000 bail for sexual assault on a minor.

Redlands Police Chief Mark A. Garcia and Fire Chief Jeff L. Frazier will hold a joint town hall meeting at 6 p.m. Wednesday, June 26, the Redlands City Council Chambers. The meeting will be televised live to cable television customers on Redlands TV.

Frazier and Garcia will answer questions regarding public safety issues.

In addition to answering questions from the audience, the Police and Fire Chiefs will also take questions by email and live via the Redlands Police Department’s Facebook page at www.Facebook.com/RedlandsPoliceDepartment and the Redlands Fire Department’s Facebook page at www.Facebook.com/RedlandsFireDepartment. Questions will be answered live online as time permits.

A 31-year-old Colton man is in custody for false imprisonment, pimping and pandering after arranging for men to have sex with a 17-year-old Loma Linda girl in a Redlands motel. Police are trying to identify a second man who sexually assaulted the girl and are seeking other potential victims.

Wilbert Andres Mancia-Mejia, who identified himself as 17-year-old “Albert Mann,” met the girl through a web chat group and subsequently contacted her on another social networking site before the two began a sexual relationship.

Mancia-Mejia later posted compromising photos of the girl along with advertisements for sex on Craig’s List. On May 30, Mancia-Mejia rented a motel room in Redlands. While Mancia-Mejia waited in his car in the motel parking lot an unidentified man went into the room where he sexually assaulted the victim. The suspect told the girl to wait in the room for five minutes and then left. After the girl told Mancia-Mejia about the assault he took her home.

Three people were cited for driving without a proper license during a DUI/Drivers License checkpoint Friday.

A total of 781 vehicles passed through the checkpoint in the southbound lanes of Alabama Street south of Park Avenue between 7 p.m. and midnight Friday, June 14. No one was cited for driving under the influence during the checkpoint.

On Monday, June 10, traffic officers conducted a grant-funded traffic enforcement in the areas of downtown, Citrus Plaza, Orange Street at the Santa Ana River wash, and the area of Alessandro and Sunset, issuing 28 citations for violations including speeding, failure to stop at a stop sign or a red light, using a cell phone while driving, crossing the double-yellow line, failure to wear a seatbelt and driving on a suspended license.

Redlands Police arrested a 59-year-old Colton man last week for an attempted bank robbery in October.

On Tuesday, June 11, Police located James Phillip Urbino at an apartment in the 600 block of South 8th Street in Colton, where he had been living with relatives. Urbino had been identified as a suspect in the Oct. 20, 2012, attempted robbery of a Redlands Wells Fargo Bank branch.

In honor of the quasquicentennial, or 125th Anniversary, of its hometown, Hangar 24 Craft Brewery has created the special Redlands 125th Red Ale to celebrate the milestone. The beer has a multi-faceted American hop aroma, coupled with a pleasant crystal malt balance.

“We are honored that City officials asked us to brew a special beer for Redlands’ 125th Anniversary,” said Hangar 24 owner and Master Brewer Ben Cook. “We thought it would be fitting to brew our first true Red Ale to celebrate the occasion. It was a lot of fun for the team to create this beer and we couldn't be happier with how it turned out.  We hope everyone enjoys it as much as we enjoyed creating it.” 

The Redlands Police Department Traffic Unit will conduct a DUI/drivers license checkpoint from 7 p.m. until midnight Friday, June 14 in the southbound lanes of Alabama Street south of Park Avenue.

Officers will contact drivers passing through Friday’s checkpoint looking for signs of alcohol and/or drug impairment.  Officers will also check drivers for proper licensing and will strive to delay motorists only momentarily.  When possible, specially trained officers will be available to evaluate those suspected of drug-impaired driving.

The A.K. Smiley Public Library will present its second annual “Library Days,” celebration, thanks to a grant from Environmental Systems Research Institute, on June 14 and 15 at the Smiley Library, 125 W. Vine St.

This year’s theme will focus on the 125th anniversary of the incorporation of the City of Redlands in 1888. “Since the City is celebrating its quasquicentennial, and our vital Friends of the Library support group is marking its 40th anniversary, the theme seemed appropriate,” observed Smiley Library Director Don McCue.

The event begins Friday, June 14, with the “Guess Where” game, a self-guided discovery experience about the Library. Interested players can get the game at the Circulation Desk.

On Saturday, June 15, a variety of interesting events are planned from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. From 10 a.m. to noon, Archivist Nathan Gonzales will reprise last year’s highly-successful showing of historic films about Redlands, once again replete with freshly-popped popcorn.

From 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. in the children’s garden, younger patrons will have the opportunity to assist noted children’s craft expert Didi Pelev assemble a 3-D paper 125th birthday cake for the City of Redlands.

At 11 a.m. in the Heritage Room Gonzales will conduct a special reading of the classic Redlands book “Two Girls in the Kite” for children.

The Armory Band will perform a variety of 19th century musical pieces from noon to 1 p.m. in the adjacent Smiley Park. Bring a chair or blanket and a picnic lunch to enjoy the concert with your whole family.

Last, but not least, historians Ann Deegan and Maria Carrillo will offer a sneak preview of their forthcoming book about early Redlands photographers in the Assembly Room at 1 p.m.

Throughout the day Friends of the Library members will serve lemonade and cookies, and have also arranged a special book sale in Smiley Park.

The city of Redlands is warning hikers and residents after two recent reported sightings of a mountain lion in the canyon areas of south Redlands.

The most recent sighting was reported at about 9 p.m. Saturday, June 8, in the 900 block of Sunset Hills Lane near Horse Trail Drive. A similar report in the same area was made earlier in the week.
