Police Log: $2.8 Million Bail! Say What?

Notable incidents encountered March 18 to 24.

America's Most Wanted? Or is this a mistake?

A 32-year-old Livermore man, arrested last week on a warrant, is in custody at the Santa Rita Jail in Dublin with a whopping bail of $2.8 million, according to county records. 

The had little information on the case, as it belongs to the Union City Police Department.

The suspect was apprehended by Union City officers March 20 at 3 p.m. on the 900 block of North Canyon Drive in Livermore, records state.

Among the man's lengthy list of alleged charges are: vehicle theft; burglary; identity theft; access-card fraud; forgery; making fake checks; and possession of stolen property, according to Alameda County Sheriff's Office data.

Whether that hefty bail is real, a typo, or will stick remains to be seen. Records show he was due to appear with an attorney March 26 at the Fremont Hall of Justice to enter his plea.

That high of a bail is not unheard of outside of a murder case. It could be due to his previous record of fleeing or his criminal history or both as well as the current charges against him.

The bigger the bail, the better we are as a community.

I like the reversal of roles bail plays on repeat offenders. Now it is their personal wealth, if any, or their friends and relatives who are on the hook rather than the taxpayers for further transgressions.
