    Vigilant, Savvy LBPD Sergeant -- Just Driving Crosstown To Take His Annual Hearing Test -- Makes Three Arrests

    (March 22, 2003) -- An observant, savvy LBPD Sergeant -- who just happened to be driving across town for his annual hearing test -- managed to arrest three people on various charges including driving a stolen car and drug charges.

    LBPD Public Information Office Sgt. Paul LeBaron tells the chain of events:

    On March 19, LBPD South Division Sgt. Kerry Giesige -- a former gang detective promoted last year -- was headed crosstown to West Division to take his annual hearing test. A veteran of nearly 11 years on the force, Sgt. Giesige was stopped at a light at Magnolia Ave. and PCH when he noticed a Dodge Neon next to him containing several occupants.

    Sgt. Giesige noticed that the driver seemed nervous, appeared to avoid looking at him, seemed to be concealing his face. And the observant cop also noticed that the car's trunk had been popped.

    Sgt. Giesige ran the license plate. It came back stolen.

    Sgt. Giesige pulled the driver over. The driver was on parole with outstanding warrants. Sgt. Giesige arrested him on charges of driving a stolen vehicle.

    A female passenger had an outstanding warrant for prostitution. She was arrested on cocaine and drug paraphrenalia charges. A male passenger was arrested on drug paraphrenalia charges.

    Sgt. Giesige proceeded on his crosstown drive for his hearing test...while these three individuals headed to jail instead of proceeding through the Magnolia/PCH neighborhood.

    [ comment: We're not sure how Sgt. Giesige did on his hearing test...but his eyesight and vigilance appear to be in very good shape.]
