Suspects break rear windows twice in recent residential burglaries

Two Newport Beach residential robberies over the holidays had suspects breaking rear entry windows to gain access. One residence was saved by an alarm, the other wasn’t so fortunate.

In the first, in the 2100 block of Highland Drive, on Dec. 28 around 6:30 a.m., the victims were out of town when an unknown suspect entered the secured backyard after possibly climbing over one of two locked gates. The suspect then shattered a window pane on a sliding glass door near the lock. The suspect reached in through the hole, unlocked the sliding glass door and opened it.  

Before the burglar could get the door open far enough to enter, the burglar alarm

was activated and the suspect fled. When officers arrived, they found no evidence that the suspect had entered the home.

In the second incident, on Jan. 1 between noon and 1:30 p.m., while the victims were out, an unknown suspect entered the victim’s backyard through an unsecured side gate, walked around to the back of the house and shattered the sliding glass door leading into the living room. Once inside, the suspect ransacked the living room, master bedroom and cabinets, storage areas and closets in three other rooms of the home.  

The suspect located the victim’s car keys and fled in the victim’s Jeep Cherokee that had been parked in the garage. Additional items including a passport and laptop were also taken.

First defendant is convicted for kidnapping, torture and mutilation

Kyle Shirakawa Handley, 36, Fountain Valley, was convicted Friday of kidnapping, torturing, and mutilating a marijuana dispensary owner. The defendant was found guilty by a jury after less than two hours of deliberation.

Co-defendants, Hossein Nayeri, 39, Ryan Anthony Kevorkian, 37, and Naomi Josette Rhodus (formerly Naomi Kevorkian), 37, face the same charges and maximum sentence as Handley. Nayeri is currently scheduled for jury trial on March 23, and Kevorkian is scheduled for a pre-trial hearing on Jan. 26.

At the time of the crime, victim John Doe owned a lucrative marijuana dispensary business. After two expensive trips to Las Vegas with John Doe in March and May 2012, Handley devised, and Nayeri is accused of assisting in devising, a plan to kidnap and rob John Doe.

Handley surveilled the victim’s home and parents’ home and followed him as he made frequent trips to the desert. The defendants wrongly believed the victim was driving to the desert to bury large amounts of cash.

Approximately one week prior to the kidnapping, Nayeri is accused of committing a routine traffic violation in Newport Beach, and subsequently leading Newport Beach Police Department (NBPD) on a high-speed chase when they attempted a stop. He is accused of crashing his car and fleeing on foot, and was able to escape at that time. Inside the abandoned car, Nayeri is accused of leaving surveillance equipment and videos, which at the time had no criminal significance.

On Oct. 2, 2012, John Doe, along with his roommate’s girlfriend, Jane Doe, were awoken in the middle of the night by masked intruders, kidnapped, zip-tied, and put into the back of a van.

Handley drove the victims to the Mojave Desert near the area where he and his co-defendants believed John Doe was hiding money. John Doe was tortured throughout the drive with a blow torch, a Taser gun, and a whip. Once in the desert, the victim was mutilated and bleach was poured on him in an effort to destroy any DNA evidence. John Doe and Jane Doe were dumped on the side of the road still bound, blindfolded, and duct-taped.

The kidnappers fled the scene and Jane Doe ran over a mile to a main road in the dark and flagged down a nearby police car.

John Doe spent an extensive period of time in the hospital recovering from his injuries.

Handley now faces a maximum sentence of life in prison without the possibility of parole.

Woodward pleads not guilty, bail set at $5 million

Last Friday, Feb. 2, Samuel Woodward, 20, of Newport Beach, entered a not guilty plea in Orange County Superior Court to murder charges in the stabbing death of former classmate Blaze Bernstein.

Lifeguard rescues jumper off Newport Pier

At approximately 6 a.m. yesterday morning (Sunday, Feb. 11), anglers on the Newport Pier called 911 to report a swimmer in distress. Witnesses stated that the victim had jumped off the pier fully clothed.

Newport Beach Police officers arrived on scene in time to deploy a life ring tethered to the pier. Newport Beach firefighters and lifeguards also responded.

Lifeguard Captain George Leeper jumped off the end of the pier to make the rescue. The victim was then brought safely to shore. 

Newport Beach Fire personnel treated the patient and transported her to Hoag.

Lifeguard Battalion Chief Brent Jacobsen said as a reminder, “It is illegal to jump off the pier and it’s extremely dangerous to swim at night. Always swim near a lifeguard and never swim alone.”

The sea conditions and cold-water temperature make it dangerous to enter the ocean at night without proper training and equipment. Hypothermia can quickly set in when exposed to cold water.

Sex trafficker sentenced to 20+ years

A San Bernardino County man was sentenced to 20 years and eight months in state prison Friday, Feb. 9, for human trafficking, pimping and pandering of several women.

Ronald Preston Spurlock, 39, Grand Terrace, is a human trafficker/pimp who exploits women for financial gain. Pimps often establish rigid rules their victims are expected to follow including setting daily quotas the victims are expected to fulfill. The victims are required to turn over all payment they receive for sex acts from sex purchasers to their pimp. Failure to follow these rules can result in physical and/or emotional abuse. 

Prior to April 2014, Spurlock recruited several victims to engage in commercial sex for his benefit in areas known for prostitution and human trafficking in Orange County and posted sexually explicit advertisements of several of the victims on websites known for soliciting commercial sex.

Spurlock set a quota of $1,000 a day and kept the money the victims received from sex purchasers for himself.

The defendant told multiple victims he was watching them at all times and required them to check in with him regularly.

In July 2011, Spurlock made several calls from Orange County Jail in order to dissuade a victim, Jane Doe 1, from testifying against him. The defendant isolated the victim and prevented her from seeing her family without permission.

In April 2014, Newport Beach Police Department (NBPD) began investigating Spurlock for an unrelated matter. NBPD conducted surveillance of the defendant and Jane Doe 1, at an apartment complex in Santa Ana. Spurlock and the victim drove vehicles registered in the defendant’s name.

On several occasions between April 2014 and May 2014, the officers observed Jane Doe 1 and two additional victims at a hotel in Costa Mesa known for prostitution. The rooms were often registered under Jane Doe 1.

Between April and June 2014, NBPD officers discovered several sexually explicit advertisements online of Jane Doe 1 and Jane Doe 2 soliciting commercial sex.

On July 9, 2014, NBPD contacted the Orange County Human Trafficking Task Force (OCHTTF) and conducted multiple joint undercover operations resulting in contact being made with Jane Doe 1 and Jane Doe 3. Officers also observed the victims making contact with several sex purchasers.

On July 17, 2014, NBPD officers located and arrested Spurlock near the apartment complex in Santa Ana. OCHTTF officers contacted Jane Doe 1 and Jane Doe 3 at the hotel in Santa Ana.

During their investigation, NBPD officers discovered text messages containing language consistent with the defendant pimping the victims, additional evidence of pimping and pandering, two firearms, and more than $14,000 in cash in Spurlock’s apartment.

Spurlock beat Jane Doe 1 and another victim, Jane Doe 7, on several occasions and pimped and pandered several more victims. On one occasion, the defendant met up with Jane Doe 7 in Las Vegas, drove the victim outside of the city, and beat her because he thought she was seeing other clients without his permission.

He was found guilty by a jury on March 8, 2017, of two counts of human trafficking, four counts of pimping, eight counts of pandering and conspiring to dissuade a witness.

Spurlock also pleaded guilty on Feb. 27, 2017, to one felony count of possession of a firearm by a felon.

Newport Beach Police decoy operation busts four businesses for compliance issues, again

On Saturday, Jan. 20, Newport Beach Police Detectives conducted a compliance check operation on local liquor-licensed establishments. Under the direct supervision of NBPD, underage decoys attempted to purchase alcoholic beverages from 10 different retail licensees in the City of Newport Beach. 

Citations were issued at four establishments: Henry’s Groceries, Azar’s Pizza, The Alley Restaurant and Bar, and CP Restaurant and Lounge. This was the second violation within the past 12 months for all four locations. The remaining six businesses did not sell alcohol to the underage decoys: Cassidy’s Bar and Grill, Bal-Harbor Liquor, Cabo Cantina, Taco Bell Cantina, Class of ’47 and Circle K Market. 

Those who sell alcoholic beverages to minors under the age of 21 face a fine of up to $1,000 and/or 24 - 32 hours of community service. In addition, ABC will take administrative action against the alcoholic beverage license belonging to the businesses where the sales to minors occurred. Due to this being the second violation for all establishments, possible repercussions include a fine of up to $6,000 or a 25-day suspension of the establishment’s liquor license. 

The NBPD routinely conducts compliance checks of alcohol establishments to reduce the availability of alcohol to minors under 21. Last year, NBPD arrested 44 people under the age of 21 for being drunk in public and unable to care for themselves. Officers also arrested 15 people under the age of 21 for driving while under the influence of alcohol; nine of those were involved in a traffic collision. Their goal is to decrease those numbers through enforcement & education.  

Minor Decoy Operations have been conducted by local law enforcement throughout the state since the 1980s. In 1994, the California Supreme Court ruled unanimously that the use of underage decoys is a valid tool for law enforcement to ensure that licensed premises are complying with the law. 

The City of Newport Beach has 451 active retail ABC licenses.

Copter crash in residential neighborhood kills three, injures two  

On Tuesday, Jan. 30 at 1:50 p.m., the Newport Beach Police Department was notified of a helicopter crash in a residential neighborhood. Police and Fire personnel responding to the scene found that the helicopter had come to rest at the front of a home on Shearwater Place near the intersection with Egret Court. Five people were involved in the collision: four adults in the helicopter and an adult bystander.

Of these five individuals, three have been confirmed deceased, succumbing to their injuries and dying at the scene. The other two people involved in the collision were injured; one was transported to a local hospital and the other was transported to a local trauma center.

Those deceased include Joseph Anthony Tena, 60, of Newport Beach; Kimberly Lynne Watzman, 45, of Santa Monica; and 56-year-old Brian R. Reichelt of Hollywood, Fla., according to the Orange County Sheriff’s Department.

The National Transportation Safety Board and Federal Aviation Administration will investigate the details of the crash. 

Although it is anticipated that the NTSB’s investigatory work at the crash scene will take several days to complete, residents of the neighborhood are able to access their homes. At least two structures were impacted by the crash, but no one inside the homes was injured as a result. Volunteers from TIP (Trauma Intervention Program) were on-hand to assist anyone impacted by the incident.

NBPD says if you’re going to party for the Super Bowl, DON’T DRIVE!

It’s almost kickoff time for America’s most-watched sporting event. On Sunday, Feb. 4, as fans tune in for Super Bowl LII, lots of their game-day socializing may include drinking. That’s why the Newport Beach Police Department joins the California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS) and Police Departments, Sheriff’s Departments, and the CHP statewide in sharing this reminder: If you plan on drinking on Super Bowl Sunday, designate a sober driver to get you home safely.

The NBPD will deploy additional officers on DUI Saturation Patrols during and following Sunday’s game. These officers will be tasked with stopping and arresting drivers who show signs of alcohol or drug impairment.

Super Bowl Sunday

Impaired driving near or above the .08 BAC limit can be deadly, and even small amounts of alcohol can impair judgement to make driving unsafe. In 2016, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reported that 10,497 people died nationwide in motor vehicle traffic crashes involving drunk drivers. Right here in California, 1,059 DUI deaths (involving a BAC of .08 or above) were reported to NHTSA that year. 

The Newport Beach Police Department supports the message from the Office of Traffic Safety that “DUI Doesn’t Just Mean Booze.” Drug-impaired driving is a problem on California roadways. Driving while impaired – by alcohol, by drugs, or by a combination of the two – is dangerous and illegal. Whether the drug is legally prescribed, an illicit drug, or marijuana, driving while drug-impaired poses a threat to the safety and lives of drivers, vehicle passengers, pedestrians and other motorists.

“Be sure to have a game plan for Super Bowl Sunday so you, and everyone else on the road, can get home safely,” Sergeant Michael Schiavi said. “If you aren’t sober, you have options: a designated driver, ride sharing, public transit... but do not make the decision to get behind the wheel if you are impaired.” 

There are many other ways to ensure a safe ride home besides relying on a friend.

The OTS DDVIP app is now available for free download on iOS and Android devices. The app offers enhanced features, allowing users to search all participating bars and restaurants throughout California. Additionally, the app users can easily order a sober ride from Uber, Lyft or Curb.

This Super Bowl weekend, be a team player and help keep impaired drivers from getting behind the wheel. Don’t fumble! Designate your sober driver before the big game begins. And remember: Fans Don’t Let Fans Drive Drunk.

This enforcement effort is funded by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration who reminds everyone to be alert and ‘Report Drunk Drivers – Call 911’!

Driver ejected in early morning crash is in critical condition

On Tuesday, Feb. 13 at 1:15 a.m., the Newport Beach Police Department’s Dispatch Center was notified of a traffic collision near the intersection of Irvine Avenue with Indian Springs Lane. The collision involved a single vehicle: a gray 2003 Chevrolet Suburban. 

The car was travelling northbound on Irvine Avenue when the driver lost control and hit the raised center median. The driver, an adult male and the lone occupant, was ejected from the vehicle and suffered critical injuries as a result of the collision. Newport Beach Fire Department personnel responded to the scene and transported him to a local trauma center for medical attention and evaluation. It is unknown if alcohol or drugs are a contributing factor in this incident. 

The cause of the collision is still under investigation. The NBPD is seeking witnesses to the collision, or anyone who can assist with additional information about the incident. Anyone with additional information is encouraged to contact Investigator Troy Zeeman at 949.644.3747 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Newport Beach Police aims for safe holiday – DUI checkpoint tomorrow

DUI Checkpoint

Courtesy of NBPD

This holiday season, the Newport Beach Police Department is working around the clock to keep everyone on the road safe from impaired drivers. From Dec. 15, 2017 through Jan. 1, 2018, law enforcement is partnering with the California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS) and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) in a special year-end Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over enforcement mobilization. They will be focusing on education and enforcement, spreading the word about the dangers of impaired driving and making arrests for DUIs. During the campaign period, they’ll be joining other police departments, sheriff’s departments, and the CHP for 18 days of concentrated DUI checkpoints and DUI saturation patrols. The NBPD will be conducting its own DUI checkpoint on Friday, Dec. 22.

“During these last few weeks of 2017, drivers may notice increased enforcement in Newport Beach,” Sergeant Mike Schiavi said. “We are watching closely for anyone who might be impaired behind the wheel. We are committed to keeping our roads safe – not just for the holidays, but every day. With extra travelers on the road, and people attending holiday festivities, we know it is likely that we will see an uptick in drunk driving…so we’ll increase our efforts to counteract that. Our goal is to get everyone home safely this holiday season,” he said.

Driving under the influence can have devastating – and deadly consequences. Nationally in 2016, 37,461 people were killed in motor vehicle traffic collisions, and 28 percent of them died in crashes where a driver had a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) over the limit of .08. Of those DUI deaths, 1,059 were right here in California.

They have also seen an increase in drug-impaired driving collisions in California in recent years. The NBPD supports the new effort from OTS that aims to educate all drivers that “DUI Doesn’t Just Mean Booze.” Everyone should be mindful that while taking medications (whether prescription, over-the-counter, or marijuana), drinking even small amounts of alcohol can greatly intensify the impairment effects.

“Two simple words can keep your holiday festivities safe – plan ahead,” said OTS Director Rhonda Craft. “Before you head out to any celebration, plan how you are getting home safely. If you are drinking, that means knowing what sober driver or service you will be using.”

This holiday season, and every day, drivers need to remember that it is never okay to drive while impaired by alcohol, marijuana, medication, or illicit drugs.  Designate a sober driver, or plan to use ride-sharing or public transportation to get home safely. Consider using the California Office of Traffic Safety’s DDVIP (Designated Driver VIP) mobile app, which is available for free download on iOS and Android devices. The app helps designated sober drivers find nearby bars and restaurants that feature free incentives (from free non-alcoholic drinks to free appetizers and more). Those who have been drinking can use the app to contact Uber, Lyft, or Curb to get a sober ride home.

Funding for this DUI operation is provided to the Newport Beach Police Department by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, reminding everyone to ‘Report Drunk Drivers – Call 9-1-1’.

Local arrested twice on same drug charges three hours apart

Nicholas Austin Smith, 37, Newport Beach, who lists his occupation as “electrician,” must have crossed some wires last Thursday, Dec. 21.

Smith was amongst a group of people arrested at 15th Street and W. Ocean Front around 12 p.m. Smith was charged with possession of unlawful paraphernalia and possession of a controlled substance. Obviously, it must’ve not been a big deal.

His bail was set at $25,000.

The other two people arrested in the group earlier with Smith included Cassaiza Leann Simmons, 25, Costa Mesa, charged with two warrants related to vehicle theft and driving without a license. She also presented false identification to the police.
