Fullerton Cop Cops Plea in Clumsy Computer Theft Caper

Fullerton cop Kellly Mejia finally had her day in court and pled guilty to swiping an iPad in a Miami airport TSA security check point. She got a slap on the wrist from the judge: a “theft class,” a dinky fine, some community services hours and best of all will get this expunged if she she keeps her nose clean for a whole year.

How can you tell if Goodrich is lying?

Lou Ponsi of the Register cites FPD spokessphincter Andrew Goodrich who claims Mejia was fired at the end of October after being on paid leave since May. Ponsi is obliging in pointing out that Mejia is a former Fullerton cop, glossing over the fact that she was a Fullerton cop when she committed her crime.

Of course we peons are not permitted to know what she was actually fired for, since the public is not privy to police personnel matters no matter how egregious a cop’s offense may have  been; whatever Mejia was canned for, presumably it wasn’t for committing larceny in Florida, since she hadn’t pled guilty of anything yet on October 28th. Was there something even worse the we shall never know about?

Andy?

    1. We need a national registry of police complaints so that police departments have the ability to learn about the complaint history of a potential police officer. A certain type of individual tends to gravitate to a police department so that they can live out their fantasies and desires. I have to think that there is a failure in the screening process for potential police officers or …we have a bigger problem than we currently understand. Can this individual simply change the police department that he works for after he has been dismissed? If this individuals record is expunged within a year, will we find this person working for another police department in two years? Scary thought, huh?

      1. Yes. Usually they move to the midwest or back east though. California’s background and DQ points make it hard for them to get hired again in California. Most former Calif cops are working in states with small populations, farmland, etc.

  1. My apologies to the city of fullerton….

    “What wasn’t done correctly, was that the department didn’t come out and say, this is what occurred, this is what we did, and this is what we’re going to be doing.
    And because of that silence, it created a tremendous amount of problems for the police department and the city,”

  2. The FPD and the three hollow logs don’t want anybody to know about Mejia and Power and Mater, and Rincon and the Veth Mam incident, etc.

    I too noticed the effort by Goodrich and Ponsi to talk about a former cop, to separate the cop from what we know is a Culture of Corruption. FAIL.

  3. capn hughes :My apologies to the city of fullerton….
    “What wasn’t done correctly, was that the department didn’t come out and say, this is what occurred, this is what we did, and this is what we’re going to be doing.And because of that silence, it created a tremendous amount of problems for the police department and the city,”

    Awe..your poor little police department and your poor little city officials.

    We will all stand together to help you get those ‘cats off of your tongues’.
    That way, you could stop being silent and stop steppin’ on your weenies.

    Of course, all of your department’s shenanigans didn’t created ANY problems for the people of Fullerton, did they?

  4. This is truly disgraceful for the citizens of Fullerton and to the honest, hard working men and women of the FPD. Like I stated in the OC Weekly article, I doubt this was her first time doing something like this…

    1. Say hello to Merisa Grueber for us and thank her for that brilliant article titled “Fullerton Police: the Bullies in Blue”.

      Apparently she’s one of the only reporters on our planet that doesn’t shy away from telling it like it is when it comes to police corruption.
      I guess all the other reporters are afraid of the police, especially FPD cause they know they’re stupid (some of them) and they got guns.

    2. There would have been no arrest of this police officer had this event occurred in Fullerton. The Code of Silence would have protected her just like it’s protecting these four other police officers who were involved in last summer’s beating death of a mentally ill Fullerton resident.

  5. I am very glad Kelly is no longer on Fullerton PD. If you think you can steal an ipad in Miami, you also think you can steal in Fullerton.
    Just why and how did she get that idea that stealing was ok? Theft is ok? Did she see it around her at FPD? One never knows but the culture of SILENCE lets us all think the worst. Just think, all this questioning about FPD practices started with the Kelly Thomas murder.
    If I were a retiring FPD member, I certainly would want to visit the DA with any info that I had as well as call Gennaco to provide info. It is probably impossible to get a lateral transfer to another city PD from FPD since FPD is considered “tainted”!

  6. Assembly instructions for officers Mejia and Goodrich-

    STEP 1

    Before inserting them into position determine that the IQ’s are maintained at or below room temperature.

    STEP 2

    insert new employees into uniform

    STEP 3

    assembly complete

  7. YOU all add a new meaning to the term “peer pressure”.

    Relentless, but AWESOME!!!!

    I doubt this case was a FIRST offense. The first time they got caught maybe. Wonder how much stuff turned up missing at FPD???

    Someone dumb enough to steal an Ipad at an airport with the eye in the sky watching, and all those security personnel is dumb enough to steal when NO ONE is watching.

    Oh yes Reality Is, I spent 10 years in the private sector in retail security catching thiefs and learning their behavior in the process.

    Just didn’t want you thinking I didn’t know what I was talking about.

  8. Tuco Ramirez :I am very glad Kelly is no longer on Fullerton PD. If you think you can steal an ipad in Miami, you also think you can steal in Fullerton.Just why and how did she get that idea that stealing was ok? Theft is ok? Did she see it around her at FPD? One never knows but the culture of SILENCE lets us all think the worst. Just think, all this questioning about FPD practices started with the Kelly Thomas murder.If I were a retiring FPD member, I certainly would want to visit the DA with any info that I had as well as call Gennaco to provide info.

    “Just why and how did she get that idea that stealing was ok? Theft is ok? Did she see it around her at FPD?”

    Maybe she was good friends with that younger pill-poppin’ officer who was caught stealing money from the petty cash drawer at FPD?
    Can’t think of his name, but someone will.

  9. Yeah, I can see goodrich trying to make this look like a former cop got busted instead of a former cop pled guilty to a theft committed while employed by the department.

  10. Did not the new Acting Police Chief say 10 days or so ago, that in the future the Lt. and the Cpt. would be the spokespersons to the press and that Sgt. Goodrich would work these things in the background? So first example of something going wrong, Kelly Mejia, a sworn officer, is found guilty of stealing an ipad in the Miami Airport, and who do we see doing the grunt work of misleading the press? Yup, its the same ol Sgt.Andrew Goodrich who lied like a felon about the Kelly Thomas death! So I have to ask the new Acting Chief Hughes, “Do any of these guys listen to you and follow your instructions?” Where are the Lt. and Captain? Does $125,000/year Sgt. Goodrich understand what stay in the background means? Who is running the FPD? Captain Hughes or the FPD Police Union?

  11. We know Goodrich lied about Kelly Thomas, who is to say he did not lie about Mejia’s termination at the end of October? Can anyone turn up any hard evidence to verify her termination?

  12. I especially enjoyed Goodrich bragging about batting one thousand. The record looked great in 2003, but then the wheels started coming off the squad car. Chris Norby and Shawn Nelson jumped ship PDQ (although Norby stayed on the Police Reservation long enough to vote for the obscene [email protected] deal in 2001, thanks Norby). The pitiful police-backed pipsqueak Mike Clesceri was tossed out in 2004 after a mere one term; and ditto the equally useless Leland Wilson who was just a bad memory by 2006.

    In 2010 the union backed a geriatric of dubious mental competency, a poster boy for pension abuse, and a guy who dodged criminal responsibility by giving his DNA to the DA. Hey two outta three ain’t bad – for them. For the rest of us? Not so good! Sept 13, 2011

    1. Does this mean the citizens have to pop for a couple of jets skis, trailer,diving gear and a club membership and ????????????$$$$$$$$$$$$$$?

  13. Lifesaving Service :

    Reality Is :
    Maybe cause she resigned in lieu of termination? Uh huh. Smooth baby smooth.

    Why is that smooth, I do enjoy insight into the WARPED MIND.

    I think RI thinks if you resign, you can get a job as a cop again. NOT if anyone is paying attention.

    I never understood why ANYONE thinks resigning is some way not as meaniful as being fired.

    Semantics at the end of the day. The cloud over your head is still dark.

  14. Simularities between FPD and Alquida

    1, victims of their own success, 9-11-2001, Kelly Thomas Beating 7-5-2011.

    2, They and them attitude.

    3, Hate, Intimidation, Lies, and torture in extreme forms.

    4, Disregard for The Constitution of the USA.

  15. I had exactly the same thought as Tuco R, as posted above.

    “Finders keepers, losers weepers” might work with a kindergarten crayon — I happen to think it doesn’t — but this was a damn friggin’ rotten cop who blatantly pinched an innocent traveler’s iPad.

    Until this happened, I would have wishfully assumed that an “officer of the law” would’ve taken the basic high road and turned the item into lost and found. All airports have them.

    It probably would’ve been stolen at that point, but at least our shamefaced Fullerton artful dodger would have avoided this embarrassing disaster.

    Who do you trust these days? Who can we trust?

    Who do I call when someone is breaking into my home — a hippie?

    Why do we even BOTHER with police when they are the ones who are unabashedly breaking the law?

    I’m hoping the Kelly Thomas police murder and the endless Fullerton scandals will go viral way beyond what we’ve seen so far.

    Justice for Kelly Thomas.

    Fumigation for Fullerton.

  16. Taking anything from any place that is not your property does not does not meet any test of “reasonable rationale”
    Her taking the item within and removing it from a controlled area where she has no jurisdiction of authority is in alignment with the charges that she was found guilty of.
    As my mind is prone to wonder, a serious question bothers me;
    1. Was this person ever in charge of any evidence?
    2. When was the last inventory of the evidence lock-up conducted and verified?
    3. Did she have access to the evidence lock-up or any safe guarded areas or property during her employment within the FPD?
    4. What is her relationship, of any kind, with the teams that conduct raids based on legitimate or internal authority.
    5. Could she be part of rogue gang inside the FPD?

  17. Nasty Swipe :
    Yeah, I can see goodrich trying to make this look like a former cop got busted instead of a former cop pled guilty to a theft committed while employed by the department.

    a former FIRED cop got busted………. aren’t we splitting hairs now? How thin will Chaz slice it?

    Absolutely amazing the PR spin the still comes out of this city. And especially after that last council meeting.

  18. In a written statement to police, Mejia said she didn’t see who placed the iPad in the bin and picked it up as “found property.”

    “I sat down in my waiting area and did not see the flight workers in the area and was unable to turn in the (iPad) notebook prior to being contacted by the police,” Mejia stated.

    1. How about this…my mother taught me this….if it doesnt belong to you dont touch it…jeesus if everybody ( including a sworn police officer) would just follow this advise…puhleeze,Ms Mejia you are an embarrassment to women and true theives…shame on you twice.

  19. Joe, “Ponsi is obliging in pointing out that Mejia is a former Fullerton cop, glossing over the fact that she was a Fullerton cop when she committed her crime.”

    Ponsi did’nt “gloss over the fact that she was a Fullerton cop when she committed her crime. Later in the article he wrote:

    “Mejia was an officer with the Fullerton Police Department when she was arrested on May 2 at Miami International Airport on suspicion of stealing an iPad that belonged to another traveler. At the time, she had been with the department for about six years, four of them as a sworn officer.”

    I think Ponsi wrote a good article, I believe he’s getting better every day, and that’s a good thing.

          Some of your points were spot on.

          The other points were just your activist mentality that all police are in the same circle you refer to. Policing has changed alot over the last 20 years. Management wants the right thing done. Accomplishing that isn’t always easy but when bad cops are found, they are fired much quicker than they were 5, 10, 20 years ago.

          Sellers was a very knowledgeable person. He taught at local colleges and I believe he would never just allow a rampant, corrupt, excessive force department. I guess we will never know. This case will probably do what everyone wants and get rid of 1 or 2 bad cops.

          1. #11 by Reality Is on August 12, 2011
            I’m starting to like you Tony now that I realize what you are all about. I’ve dealt with the Hispanic activists before and you are identical. You turn every word, every phrase into something that will spark interest from your fellow activists, even if it is adding something that is completely made up.

            I’m surprised at all the people that think Fullerton is any different than any other city in California, or the US. This was a critical incident and is getting attention, but if you had the same incident in just about any other city you would see that the city councils and mayors are the same or worse. In terms of Chiefs, I think some would have handled it differently but from an activist perspective I don’t think any council or Chief could do anything right.

            1. #18 by Jiminy on August 12, 2011
              Have to agree with Tony and Chris. Once Hamilton used the word “struggle”, there went his credibility. He just signaled to his forces that he is going to continue to protect them by pretending that there was some sort of rationale for this fatal torture-beating. Unfortunately for him we all know better and we are not going to stop until justice is done. Sorry Chief. You had your chance to help regain the support of the community – and you blew it on day one.

              #19 by Reality Is on August 12, 2011
              What did you want him to say? He saw the video. I’ve heard it was very much a “struggle” from witnesses and officers. Not sure what you would want the Chief to call it since he knows more about it than anyone but the DA’s office.

                Mike Sellers is remembered in Laguna Beach as the police chief in charge when a problematic homeless man by the name of Matthew Dunlevy was tased and died in the Laguna Beach city jail in 2006. The victim’s family was offered and accepted a quarter of a million dollar settlement. Sound familiar?

                It was also on Sellers’ watch that a distraught couple, hiding in fear at the Montage, were blown away by police in front of their 14 year-old son. The husband had called 911 and pleaded with the dispatcher, “we haven’t done anything wrong,” but police opened fire on them, killing both. The couple was found to have had one handgun gun between them and the police justified killing both by claiming “At different moments in the room each one had possession of the gun separately.”

                So naturally both had to be shot and killed!

                According to the couple’s young son, there was no attempt at negotiation, just an order to “drop the gun,” before officers opened fire on both his parents.

                Suffice it to say, not many tears were shed by locals when Sellers moved on, and in true civil-servant fashion, UP, to a larger police department with the city of Fullerton. How do they always fail up?

                As an aside, today the homeless in Laguna Beach are sheltered at night in a facility up the canyon. Storage is provided for their things, as is transportation back and forth to the beach. Dinner, and, believe it or not, a movie, round out the services used to lure them back to the shelter in the evening. Many locals used to make fun of it, including me, but the program has been a HUGE success, the village, beach and boardwalk are more attractive than ever at night and confrontations between police, the homeless and citizenry have been significantly reduced.

                Blah blah blah. Jail transient was a dope head and died due to drug use. The Montage incident was a clear cut case. Any cop in the world, and any citizen when presented with the facts, would have done the same thing. They wanted to die and they died.

                Wow glad I don’t live in Laguna. No money for anything these days so let’s just cater to the homeless. Most homeless in places like OC make more money than most hard workers. Just ask em. Between their welfare checks, the giveaways, and the money they beg for they have plenty of money to lead a great life and do all the drugs they want. Just ask em sometime.

        2. You were a REAL swinehole back then RI !!!
          That HAS to be the nastiest comment you’ve ever made here! Unless LS reveals some more.

          When and where did things go wrong with you?

    1. Yes that’s true. AFTER the headline, subheadline, and first sentence of the story referred to a “former” cop.

      There is a clear intent here to emphasize the fact that she was a former FPD cop, thus distancing FPD from the fact that they employed a criminal.

  20. Please join the retirement party! Seller’s send off in style~~
    Front of FPD/ Feb 18th @12pm- let the city of Fullerton, The Police throughout the U.S.A and the American Peolple know how great fullerton PD leadership is.

  21. Twice in my life I’ve found a lost wallet. I returned them both, no problem. No big deal.

    I lost my wallet once, in downtown San Diego. I was stressing, clearly, until a homeless man came to my door several days later and returned it to me.

    He told me he was homeless, and he politely asked for a twenty-dollar reward.

    No problem, man. I wish I could’ve given a thousand. He certainly saved me that much, potentially.

    I trust homeless guys and gals far more than I trust the police.

    The police are professional bullies, and they like that. They’re into it.

    My question, again: who do we trust? Who CAN we trust?

    This disgraced Fullerton cop had the chance to take the easy, obvious high road and do the right thing, yet she chose the lowest possible road and did the wrong, most dirty thieving action. Thief.

    Who can we trust?

    Justice for Kelly Thomas.

  22. Reality Is :
    Ol’ Goodie used the words he learned in his class very well. Former cop, no longer working for the PD, etc. Smooth.

    You mean the one you taught BULLSHIT 101?

  23. It’s funny to see the comments on this site you all badger on with shame on her and disgraceful but truth be told she messed up just like most people do in their lives. she was busted and paid the price. she’s not working there anymore and thank God for that all cops end up just messed up as can be congrats to this officer for making her mistake at the right time. now she can live a normal life minus the ridiculous amount of money she was making…

    1. Kelly if you could do it all over again would you leave that ipad alone?

      Seriously, what were you thinking when you tried to swipe that guy’s ipad?

    2. Yes, thanks for pointing out the obvious: cops make ridiculous amounts of money. The only abnormal thing is that a 25 year-old with no brains and no ethics can make $85K per year.

  24. We need a Federal Agency, such as the FBI, to check out 100% of the Fullerton Police Department. This would have to include an inspection of all internal records and interviews with people complaining about the police officers.

    My hope is that new city council members will see that each Fullerton Police Department member is thoroughly qualified physically and mentally to deal with the public. A moratorium period could be used by contracting services with the Sheriff’s Department and then a FPD rehiring process that would make sure that police officers are qualified one by one before having a Fullerton Police Department. We should be especially suspicious of candidates that were with other police departments.

    And I’d like to add that you can make $220k a year, with lifetime medical if you get a degree, play the corruption game your entire career and move into the Chief of Police slot.

    When you finally get caught, you can retire with HONOR. You just have to have a heart condition, high blood pressure and a doctors note.
