Titus Young’s weekend arrest in San Clemente, Calif. came on the heels of two other alleged incidents linked to a car registered to him, the Orange County Sheriff’s Department told PFT on Monday.
Orange County Sheriff’s spokesman Jim Amormino told PFT a black Ford Mustang registered to Young was involved in a pair of incidents investigated by authorities on Friday, hours before Young was arrested in San Clemente on burglary, resisting arrest and assault on a peace officer charges.
According to Amormino, the Orange County Sheriff’s Department received a call at 6 p.m. Friday regarding a person believed to be laying in a black Mustang in a driveway outside a home in San Clemente. County fire department personnel in an ambulance got to the scene first. When they arrived, the Mustang was leaving, and it almost hit the ambulance. Sheriff’s personnel searched for the person alleged to be driving the vehicle, but they could not find the person. After the first incident, the sheriff’s department was able to ascertain that the vehicle belonged to Young, Amormino said.
Then, at about 8 p.m. Friday, the Orange County Sheriff’s Department was contacted regarding a person peering into cars, Amormino said, and a description of a car alleged to have been used in the incident was the black Mustang belonging to Young. Sheriff’s personnel, including a helicopter, searched for the person alleged to be looking into cars for about an hour, but the search did not turn up the person.
During the 8 p.m. incident, a description of the person alleged to be looking into the cars was given, Amormino said. The person was described to be wearing a burgundy undershirt, and the person described in the 8 p.m incident matched the description of the person involved in the Saturday morning incident in which Young was arrested on burglary and other charges in San Clemente.
The car registered to Young was found and impounded.
