Man Arrested for Attemping to Lure Teens Into Taking Suggestive Photos

Police were able to catch a man who is believed to have contacted minor girls with the intent to commit a sexual offense. The man, Coopy Boyer, was arrested on November 24, 2012. The Fullerton police became involved in the case after two teen girls reported to authorities that a man had approached them in Huntington Beach inquiring if they were interested in modeling.

The girls gave him their numbers believing he was a photographer with Zoom Exposure Photography. Over the following days, the suspect sent the girls dozens of suggestive texts about the type of photographs he wanted to take. One text even suggested the girls bring alcohol and allow him to take photos of them playing dress-up. When the girls suggested that their parents accompany them to sign any necessary waivers he informed them that no waiver needed to be filled out.

The police set up a time and place for Boyer to pick up the girls. When he arrived, the police arrested him after he attempted to flee and even tossed his phone out of his car.

Boyer is currently being held on $100,000 bail by the Fullerton Police Department. Police believe there may be other victims.

High Speed Pursuit on the 5 Freeway Leaves the Freeway Closed for 6 Hours

A police pursuit Friday left four injured and the I-5 southbound closed. The chase began in Anaheim when officers attempted to stop a stolen Ford F-250. When the pickup refused to stop for police, officers pursued the truck onto the 57 freeway and then the I-5. The F-250 reached speeds on the I-5 of 90 miles an hour before colliding with a white compact car. The chase ended near the Camino de Estrella exit a mere 16 minutes after it had began.

After the truck crashed with the compact car it hit the divider leading it to flip and roll several times. At that point, the driver was thrown from the vehicle and was taken to the hospital in critical condition. Other passengers in the F-250 were also injured but the extent of their injuries is unknown. 

It is still unclear why the driver lost control of the truck. It is believed that spike strips caused the collision.

The freeway remained closed until 11p.m. and caused major traffic congestion for miles.

Reyes committed the crimes of illegally entering the United States following deportation back to Mexico in 2007. Prior to being deported to Mexico, Reyes served four years for a 2003 burglary conviction. Officials were able to place Reyes at the scene of the break-ins as a result of DNA samples Reyes submitted in the 2003 burglary case. 
Reyes found his victims by targeting a 1-square-mile area around Santa Ana. He would walk around during the day, see where the girls lived, and then return later in the night. Reyes admitted to police he was attracted to pre-teen girls and that touching them gave him "goose bumps."
Reyes Public Defender, Dolores Yost, admittedly argued that Reyes crimes were not sexually motivated.

The second stabbing took place at 2:30AM early Saturday when a father and son were confronted on East Washington Street. Four men, believed to be gang members, questioned the father and son regarding their gang affiliation. When the father and son denied they were affiliated with any gang, the four men began punching them. During the course of the confrontation, one of the victims was able to run away and called for help. The four men fled leaving the father on the ground with a stab wound. Both victims are expected to survive.
