No bail required means no bail required, a message that hit home for Dijon Landrum in California.
Last Wednesday, the Glendora Police found the 24-year-old man attempting to drive away in a stolen car. He was arrested, but because of the zero bail policy in place to stop overcrowding in jails during the coronavirus outbreak, he was issued a citation and released.
Several hours later, police were called to a neighborhood to investigate a suspicious man walking through yards with a box. They found Landrum with a box full of stolen property.
The police issued him a citation.
That evening, the police responded to a stolen vehicle report, eventually stopping the car in Pasadena, where they encountered Landrum for the third time that day and… issued him a citation.
It’s almost as if the criminals have figured out they won’t go to jail and commit more crimes.
