Suspected Arsonist Arrested By Newport Beach PD

August 12, 2016 Comments Off on Suspected Arsonist Arrested By Newport Beach PD posted by: Bail Expert
 

Police in Newport Beach say they’ve arrested a man who they believe is responsible for setting two fires in an area along the Pacific Coast Highway earlier this month.

The suspect, who has since been identified as 37-year-old Matthew Brady, was booked into the Newport Jail on suspicion of arson. His bail bonds amount was not immediately clear; it’s also unclear as to whether Brady will face any additional charges.

The fires, according to a report by OCRegister.com, were all set using matches.  Authorities have not said how they came to identify Brady as their primary suspect but they have said they don’t believe he was under the influence of alcohol or drugs at the time these crimes were committed.

Anyone who believes they have information that could assist in the investigation of this case is asked to contact the Newport Beach PD.

When Would A Newport Jail Inmate Get Released OR?

July 16, 2016 Comments Off on When Would A Newport Jail Inmate Get Released OR? posted by: Bail Expert
 

Our daughter was arrested by the Newport Beach Police Department for drug possession (she had some marijuana in her car when she was pulled over) and we’re trying to figure out if she’ll be released on her own recognizance.  How can we find out if we’ll need to post bail bonds?

As long as she wasn’t arrested with a significant quantity of marijuana (ie: the police determined the amount was for personal use) she will be released on her own recognizance within 6 to 12 hours of her arrest.  When she arrived at the jail she would have been booked and processed.  They’ll also check her for warrants.  As long as she isn’t wanted for any other crimes, the jailer should start to process her release paperwork.  For more information regarding bail bonds in Newport Beach call us today at 888-224-5266.

Newport Beach PD Helps Reunite Dog With Its Rightful Owner

May 23, 2016 Comments Off on Newport Beach PD Helps Reunite Dog With Its Rightful Owner posted by: Bail Expert
 

A spokesperson for the Newport Beach Police Department has confirmed that the department helped reunite a missing, pure-bred dog with its rightful owner.

The microchopped dog ran away on April 21, according to a report by NBC Los Angeles, and although the pup’s owner saw a woman walk toward him, and pick him up, they quickly disappeared.

Lou Gotowski started hanging up posters– and even created a Facebook page– that offered up a reward for his dog’s safe return.  His friends eventually found the missing Havanese pup on an adoption website.   Gotowski said he tried calling the rescue group but they took his dog’s ad down as soon as he reached out.

They rescue group eventually agreed to bring the dog to the Newport Beach PD to do the exchange.  They initially asked Gotowski to reimburse them $525, which is what they paid to neuter his dog. It’s not immediately clear whether he needed to write a check in order to get the pup back.  Animal control was onsite, the article notes, and a quick scan of the dog’s microchip confirmed that Gotowski was the rightful owner.

Do All Newport Beach Bail Bonds Need Collateral?

April 21, 2016 Comments Off on Do All Newport Beach Bail Bonds Need Collateral? posted by: Bail Expert
 

Q. Our uncle was arrested on domestic violence charges last night and he’s currently being held at the Newport Beach Jail.  We want to get him out as fast as possible but none of us own homes.  Someone told me that we’ll need to put a house up if we want to hire a bail bonds company so I’m wondering if there is any way to get around that.

A. It seems as if you’ve been given some misinformation.  The good news is that not all bail bonds require property collateral. There are some Newport Beach bail bonds companies that always prefer their clients put up collateral but depending on the nature of the crime, whether the defendant is a U.S. citizen, if they have ties to the community, you may be eligible for signature bail bonds. In this case the signature of the person who cosigns for the defendant is assurance enough that the defendant will go to court and finish their case.

Newport Beach PD Arrestee Gets 7 Years For Writing Bad Checks

February 17, 2016 Comments Off on Newport Beach PD Arrestee Gets 7 Years For Writing Bad Checks posted by: Bail Expert
 

A Newport Beach man who was arrested on suspicion of writing more than $200,000 worth of bad checks has been sentenced to seven years behind bars, according to a recent report by the LA TImes.

Richard Bloustine was taken into custody last summer and was booked at the Newport Beach Jail after he wrote a rubber check to a local car dealership.  The dealership called the police once they realized they hadn’t, and wouldn’t, be getting “proper payment.”

The defendant pleaded guilty to writing multiple bad checks including one for $80,000 to cover dental work, $13,000 to purchase furniture and more than $30,000 to rent a local home.

Since the crime in question is a non-violent, non-serious and non-sexual offense, Bloustine will serve his time in one of the LA County Jails instead of spending 7 years in state prison.  This switch is a direct result of the 2011 CA prison realignment, which shifts custody of certain offenders from state prison to local lock ups.

Your Responsibilities When You Cosign for Newport Beach Bail Bonds

January 20, 2016 Comments Off on Your Responsibilities When You Cosign for Newport Beach Bail Bonds posted by: Bail Expert
 

A lot of people aren’t aware that cosigning for bail bonds comes with quite a bit of responsibility. Not only are you guaranteeing to make sure the bondsman’s fee gets paid, you’re also taking full legal responsibility that the defendant will go to court.

If the primary payer on the bail bonds stops making payments, you can expect to start getting collections calls from the Newport Beach bondsman that helped you. Missed payments should be handled as quickly as possible; if they’re not, they’ll ultimately be reported to the credit bureaus.

If the defendant skips town after they’re released because they’re afraid of being prosecuted, this opens up a whole different can of worms. If the bondsman is unable to locate that person in a set period of time, the defendant’s full bail bonds amount will need to be paid to the court as a penalty.

The people who cosigned on the bail bonds will be responsible for covering that fee. If the person in custody is someone you don’t really know, you don’t really trust or if you have concerns they won’t handle their legal obligations, buyer beware. This is not a person you’d want to cosign for.

For more information on how bail bonds work and/or the responsibilities you’ll take on when you agree to be a cosigner, call our office today at 888-bail-bond for a free, no-hassle consultation.

Newport Beach Police crime log

October 21, 2015 Comments Off on Newport Beach Police crime log posted by: Bail Expert
 

Members of the Newport Beach police Department have responded to a variety of calls in the past several weeks.  Below are just a handful of the incidents that officers have investigated.

Late last week, police were called out to a home on Evening Canyon Road to look into mail theft.  The incident happened several days prior and the residents estimate their loss was close to $300.  Police throughout Southern California frequently urge residents to schedule deliveries for when they will be home, or to ask if a friend or neighbor can sign for valuable packages.

According to a report by Coronal Del Mar Today, officers also were called out to investigate two other crimes, the first involved a man who was found to be using the beach after it was closed.  His bail bonds were set at $50 and it’s believed he was either ticketed or simply cited out.  Another person was taken into custody on a misdemeanor warrant, according to Newport Beach PD crime logs.  The offense he was wanted for is unknown.

How to choose a Newport Beach bail bonds company

September 21, 2015 Comments Off on How to choose a Newport Beach bail bonds company posted by: Bail Expert
 

The process of hiring a bondsman isn’t as complicated as you’d think.  In this day and age, most people will start their search online.   You’ll want to be sure to look for a few key things.   First, does the company provide 24-hour bail bonds service?   Can they help you on weekends and holidays?   Second, you’ll want to get a sense that the bondsman is an expert in the field of bail bonds in Newport Beach.

Do they seem knowledgeable?  How long has the company been in business?  An experienced jail bonds agent will be much less likely to make mistakes; mistakes can often delay the bail bonds process by several hours.  Lastly, do you get the sense that you can trust the person you’re speaking to?  Do they seem to genuinely care about helping you or does it seem like they’re more interested in getting their hands on your money?

If the person you’re chatting with is giving off a used car salesman vibe, it’s OK to hang up and call someone else.

Newport Beach PD still looking for attempted robbery suspects

August 21, 2015 Comments Off on Newport Beach PD still looking for attempted robbery suspects posted by: Bail Expert
 

A spokesperson for the Newport Beach Police Department is asking for the public’s help in identifying three suspects who attempted to conduct a home invasion robbery while the residents were inside sleeping.

The incident took place just before 6 a.m. last Sunday, police said, when 911 dispatch officials received a call about an attempted break in. Responding officers arrived quickly but the suspects were nowhere to be found.

According to a report by the OC Register, police believe that one of the suspects let himself into the home by climbing inside through a second story balcony; he then walked downstairs and let the other burglars in.  From there, one of the men showed a gun to the residents and asked if they had a safe. When he replied “no”, the suspects made a run for it.

Anyone who believes they have information that could lead to the capture and arrest of these men is asked to call the Newport Beach PD tip line.
