17 Felony Arrests Made During Two-Day Parole Compliance Operation

The Long Beach Police Department (LBPD) announced Wednesday that a parole compliance operation, executed on Wednesday, April 1 and Wednesday April 8, netted 17 felony arrests.

The LBPD’s Directed Enforcement Teams partnered with California State Patrol and the Department of Homeland Security in an effort to stem violent crime in Long Beach, according to a statement from the department. The teams conducted compliance checks on individuals on active parole with a focus on the most violent offenders, as well as documented gang members. Those with outstanding arrest warrants for failing to comply with the conditions of their parole, as well as individuals with warrants related to open criminal charges, were targeted during the two-day operation.

Fifty locations were searched, 42 individuals were interviewed, two search warrants were written and executed and 17 felony arrests were made. The LBPD provided a list of the following individuals who were arrested. 16 of the individuals arrested are Long Beach residents and one individual is a resident of Buena Park.

According to the LBPD, one example of the need to follow up with parolees included suspect Clemente Munoz, an armed and dangerous parolee at large, who had fled from officers on several occasions. Officers gathered information that led them to a residence not on record with the California State Parole department. Family members denied that Munoz was on the premises and refused to allow officers to search the property. The North Directed Enforcement Team officers held a perimeter while a search warrant was written and granted. Munoz was then found hiding in the attic with the assistance of a police K-9.

“The Long Beach Police Department will continue to work collaboratively with law enforcement partners to ensure parolees who live in Long Beach are in compliance with the conditions of their parole,” a press release from the department reads. “We would like to thank the California State Parole and the Department Homeland Security for partnering with us to keep our city safe.”
