If Mayor Don Kendrick drove to Monday’s city council meeting, his car should be safe and secure with La Verne police officers David Weaver, left, and Carlos Flores on duty at City Hall. 

LA VERNE, December 19, 2017 — If you think you can drive a stolen vehicle through La Verne with impunity, you better think twice — especially if La Verne police officers David Weaver and Carlos Flores are on duty.

Between May 18, 2016 and March 7, 2017, Weaver recovered six stolen vehicles resulting in the arrests and prosecution of seven suspects.

And between Oct. 29, 2016 and June 18, 2017, Flores recovered six occupied stolen vehicles leading to the arrests and prosecution of 10 suspects.

“When you add those up, you have 17 people who have been arrested and are now serving time and are no longer in our city,” La Verne Mayor Don Kendrick said, honoring each officer with a California Highway Patrol Recovered Stolen Vehicle award at Monday’s city council meeting.

The Statewide award program is named after the California Vehicle Code Section for vehicle theft, 10851, and covers a 12-month period.
