The case was presented to The Los Angeles District Attorney's Office who charged the defendants with 68 Felony Counts on July 12, 2019.

The investigation initially began when the Victim discovered that suspect(s) fraudulently signed a Grant Deed in July 2015, which transferred ownership of the property to several fraudulent corporations. The suspects then obtained fraudulent loans against the property and subsequently sold the property to an unsuspecting buyer. Ultimately the investigation revealed the 3 suspects conspired to steal money from the victim by benefitting from the fraudulent loans and the sale of the victim's property all conducted without the victim's knowledge or permission. Due to their efforts to steal money from the victim's assets the Defendants were charged with Multiple Counts of 530(A) PC Identity Theft, 470(A) PC Forgery, 115(A) PC Forged Instrument, 487(A) PC Grand Theft, and 186.10(A) PC Money Laundering,

The case involves a disbarred attorney identified as Defendant 1, Angela Wallace, Defendant 2, Charlesetta Brown, who has previously been linked to investigations which involve preying on elderly victims to defraud them of their money via real estate or bank fraud, and Defendant 3, David Jayson Greene, Brown's son. The scheme involved defrauding Los Angeles victims of their money via real estate and bank fraud. The investigation revealed the suspects fraudulently transferred the victim's property into a fraudulent company by committing Identity Theft and Forgery. The suspects then obtained multiple loans against the property and subsequently sold the property in question to an unsuspecting buyer.

After a short surveillance in the San Fernando Valley and Ladera Heights, the Commercial Crimes Due Diligence Units arrested all three suspects on the outstanding felony warrants.

Defendant 1, Angela Fawn Wallace was booked at Metropolitan Detention Center on July16, 2019, with Bail set at $1,610,000.00.

Defendant 2, Charlesetta Brown was booked at 77th Jail on July 17, 2019, with Bail set at $1,270,000.00.

Failure to Appear Scam

 

Los Angeles: Detectives from the Los Angeles Police Department's Robbery Homicide Division are investigating several incidents in which a fraudulent caller identified himself by
the actual name of a captain employed by the Los Angeles Police Department.

The caller typically informs the victims that they failed to appear for a court hearing and have a warrant for their arrest. The caller instructs the victim to respond to the nearest police station to turn themselves in, or they can pay a fine over the phone by purchasing prepaid debit or gift cards and reading the card numbers over the phone to pay the fines.

The caller may use a variety of tactics to sound credible. They may provide information like badge numbers, case numbers, and names of actual law enforcement officials. They may also provide a phone number that is forwarded to a voicemail message made to sound like an official government entity.

If you are called by someone stating that there is a warrant for your arrest related to missed jury duty, or failure to appear as a witness, do not make any payments to them. Neither the Los Angeles Police Department nor the Superior Court of Los Angeles will ever call a member of the community to request payment of fines for failure to appear for jury duty.

It should be noted that many of the victims are current/former employees in the mental health industry. In each of these incidents, the caller claimed that the victim missed an appearance as an expert witness in a court case. Therapists and psychologists should particularly beware of the scam. You can get help determining the authenticity of a call by contacting your local police station.

Anyone with information regarding this scam is urged to contact Detective C. Marsden or Detective M. Matsuda at (213) 486-6840. During non-business hours or on weekends, calls should be directed to 1-877-LAPD-24-7 (877-527-3247).

Suspect Charged in Fatal Hit & Run of 91-Year-Old Man NR19168jl

UPDATE
North Hollywood: The Los Angeles Police Department's Valley Traffic Division (VTD) has named Joyce Bernann McKinney, as the person involved in the Fatal Hit and Run traffic collision that took the life of 91-year-old, Gennady Bolotsky. The fatal incident took place in North Hollywood on Monday June 16th, around 5:40 in the morning. Investigators believe that McKinney was driving her 2006 white GMC pick-up truck when she struck Mr. Bolotsky as he was walking with his dog in a cross-walk at Magnolia Boulevard and Wilkinson Avenue.


On June 21, 2019, investigators followed up on a lead provided by a citizen that a vehicle matching the described suspect vehicle may be parked in the city of Burbank, near the Burbank Airport. Investigators followed-up to that area and located the described vehicle which McKinney was the sole occupant of. During the investigation, detectives learned that McKinney had warrants for battery and public nuisance from an unrelated investigation. McKinney was taken into custody on those outstanding warrants and booked into Valley Jail Division in Van Nuys. McKinney's vehicle was also taken into custody at that time and was processed by VTD investigators for evidence related to the fatal collision.

While McKinney was in custody for the unrelated warrants, investigators gathered their evidence and July 01, 2019 presented their case to the Los Angeles County District Attorney. The felony charges filed in the fatal hit & run collision investigation are:
1) Assault with a Deadly Weapon (not a firearm),
2) Hit & Run with Injury, and
3) Vehicular Manslaughter.

McKinney remains in custody on the previous warrants. Her combined bail amount now stands at $137,500.00. McKinney is a female White, with a birthdate of August 06, 1950. She is a transient and appeared to be living out of her 2006 white GMC pick-up truck with three dogs at the time of her arrest.

This investigation remains ongoing and the fact that McKinney is in custody with charges filed, should not dissuade anyone from providing additional information related to this tragic collision that took the life of Gennady Bolotsky. We urge anyone with any information regarding this incident or, information about McKinney, to contact Valley Traffic Division investigators at (818) 644-8020. During non-business hours or on weekends, calls should be directed to 1-877-LAPD-24-7 (877-527-3247).

Barricaded Suspect Surrenders After Lengthy Standoff

Los Angeles: Los Angeles Police Department's Newton Division detectives announce the arrest of 25-year-old Juan Zamora, a resident of Los Angeles, for possession of an assault rifle.

On June 28, 2019, around 3:30 a.m., Newton Area officers responded to a panic alarm at a convenience store, located in the 1900 block of San Pedro Street. Upon their arrival, the officers observed a red Sport-Utility-Vehicle (SUV) in the parking lot with two male occupants The primary unit and a backup unit deployed their vehicles in front of the SUV and ordered the occupants to exit. The suspects failed to comply, driving directly between the officer's vehicles, striking one of the open police vehicles doors.

Newton officers went in pursuit of Zamora's vehicle, but lost it due to excessive speed. An LAPD airship remained with the pursuit, and broadcast the vehicles location. This led to a 77th Division patrol unit seeing Zamora's vehicle and going in pursuit. During this portion of the pursuit, Zamora stopped his vehicle near 54th Street and Main Street, and a male passenger exited and fled on foot. Zamora accelerated away at a high rate of speed. Once again due to his excessive speed, the 77th Division officers were unable to safely continue the pursuit and lost Zamora's vehicle.

The LAPD airship continued to follow Zamora's vehicle, southbound Broadway at a high rate of speed. The pursuit terminated when Zamora collided with a light standard near the corner of Broadway and 65th Street. Zamora exited the vehicle and fled on foot into an apartment building in the 300 block of 65th Street. Newton officers at scene quickly determined they had a barricaded suspect and contacted Metropolitan Division.

While still securing the scene, a subsequent search of Zamora's vehicle yielded a loaded AK-47 assault rifle. Officers were later met by a woman who stated she was Zamora's girlfriend and that their two-month-old son was inside the apartment with him.

Metropolitan Division resources arrived on scene and the Crisis Negotiation Team (CNT) quickly established a line of communication with Zamora. After several hours of negotiations, Zamora peacefully exited his residence with the child unharmed.


Our officers demonstrated great patience, discipline and a willingness to exhaust the CNT process to avoid provoking an adverse reaction with such a volatile individual. In the end, officers were able to bring the situation to a peaceful conclusion.
