More News Nips

I can’t help but wonder if Jeffrey Moreno isn’t a trifle in embarrassed right now. He’s sitting in a Kern County jail after attempting to rob a smog shop on Chester. The man working behind the counter noticed that the gun being used in the hold up was from Wal-Mart, and proceeded to take the gun from Moreno and beat the crap out of him with hit. Maybe next time he should shop at Target.


Good news! The kid who shot and killed Deondre Marzette inside the plaza this past December was finally caught and arrested. Andre Ball, one of four people arrested in connection with the murder, is the person police believe actually pulled the trigger. Ball has been missing since the shooting and the other three have already been arrested.


Violence broke out on Bakersfield downtown Wall St Alley again last night. One man and one woman were arrested for stabbing Thomas Holiwell last night near the Alley Cat. The relationship between the three is unknown at this point, but I think it’s safe to assume he won’t be buying those two drinks any time soon.
