SANTA ANA – The Orange County District Attorney’s Office (OCDA) will be seeking to have a defendant held without bail for committing a series of arsons after the Irvine Police Department (IPD) discovered e-mails by the defendant detailing plans to murder students and administrators at an Irvine high school.

Rainer Reinscheid and University High School in Irvine, CARainer Klaus Reinscheid, 48, Irvine, a professor at the University of California, Irvine, is charged with two felony counts of arson of another’s property, two felony counts of arson of a structure, one felony count of arson of an inhabited residence, one felony count of attempted arson, and one misdemeanor count of resisting or obstructing an officer. If convicted, he faces a maximum sentence of 12 years and eight months in state prison. The People will be requesting the defendant be held without bail at his arraignment today, Tuesday, July 31, 2012, at 3:00 p.m. in Department CJ-1, Central Jail, Santa Ana.

In March 2012, Reinscheid’s 14-year-old son, who attended University High School in Irvine, was disciplined at school. Sometime subsequent to this, the defendant’s son committed suicide in Mason Park Preserve in Irvine.
Between July 4, 2012, and July 24, 2012, Reinscheid is accused of committing five arsons and one attempted arson by lighting various objects on fire including newspapers, fireplace logs, brush and vegetation, a book, and a plastic porch chair. He is accused of committing these arsons on the campus of University High School, in Mason Park Preserve, and at a school administrator’s home.

At approximately 12:40 a.m. on July 24, 2012, Reinscheid is accused of attempting to set a fire in Mason Park Preserve using newspaper and lighter fluid. Officers from IPD, who were conducting increased patrols of the park due to the recent arsons, observed the defendant and arrested him near the scene. When contacted by officers, Reinscheid is accused of refusing to comply with their orders to stop and attempting to resist arrest. Reinscheid posted $50,000 bail and was released from custody that day. IPD continued their investigation.

On July 27, 2012, IPD detectives discovered e-mails on the defendant’s cell phone in the course of their investigation. The defendant is accused of sending e-mails to his wife and one to himself in April 2012 describing in detail his plan to burn down University High School, commit sexual assaults, purchase firearms and murder school officials and students, and then kill himself.

Following the discovery of these e-mails and based on linking the defendant to additional arsons, Reinscheid was re-arrested on the evening of July 27, 2012, by IPD. The OCDA believes Reinscheid poses a serious threat to the community if released from custody, and will argue to have him held without bail in light of the dangerous, violent nature of his private e-mails.   

Law enforcement believes Reinscheid acted alone and he is the only defendant and suspect in this case. The high school and school district have been notified of this case.

Anyone with additional information or who believes they have had suspicious contact with the defendant is asked to leave a message on the District Attorney’s Special Investigations hotline at (714) 347-8544.

Deputy District Attorney Andrew Katz of the Special Prosecutions Unit is prosecuting this case.

FULLERTON – A man in possession of a large cache of dental narcotics and controlled substances will be arraigned tomorrow for falsely representing himself and working as a dentist without a valid license. Esteban Campos, 46, Buena Park, is charged with two felony counts of the sale or transportation of a controlled substance, two felony counts of possession of a controlled substance, and one misdemeanor count each of furnishing dangerous drugs without a prescription, dispensing or furnishing a dangerous drug or device, and practicing dentistry without a valid license. If convicted, Campos faces a sentence ranging from probation up to eight years in state prison. He is expected to be arraigned tomorrow, Wednesday, Aug. 1, 2012, at 8:30 a.m. in Department N-12, North Justice Center, Fullerton.

Campos is accused of previously being a Registered Dental Assistant in California, but his accreditation expired in 2007. The defendant is accused of operating Steven’s Dental Lab on Western Avenue in Buena Park and illegally representing himself as a dentist and practicing dentistry without a valid license.

In December 2011, the Department of Consumer Affairs Dental Board of California received a complaint regarding Campos and the unlicensed practice of dentistry.

On two occasions in February and March 2012, undercover investigators went to Steven’s Dental Lab under the pretense of being patients in need of dental work. Campos is accused of fraudulently representing himself as a dentist to the investigators. He is accused of performing dental exams, rendering diagnoses, recommending oral surgery and braces, and making a return dental appointment. He is accused of quoting prices ranging from $65 to $2,000, depending on the procedure. 

Law enforcement conducted a subsequent search of the defendant’s fraudulent dental office. In the office, Campos is accused of being in possession of a large inventory of controlled substances and narcotics including Morphine Sulfer, Roxicet, Vicodin, and Soma, as well as boxes of dangerous drugs without prescriptions  including omeprazole, naproxen, theramine, glucotrol, warafin, napoxen, sertraline, cyclobenzaprine, tramadol, ketogel cream, and lodocaine. He is accused of possessing these drugs and administering them to patients without a license or a prescription in his illegal practice of dentistry. 

Anyone who believes they were harmed in the course of dental treatment by the defendant is encouraged to contact Supervising District Attorney Investigator Rick Morton at (949) 975-8127 or Dental Board Investigator Patrick Morrissey at (714) 923-9725.

Deputy District Attorney James Young of the Code Enforcement Unit is prosecuting this case.

Team USA Gymnastics
The United States’ is the TOAST OF LONDON today after winning the GOLD MEDAL in Women's Gymnastics.  This is the FIRST GOLD MEDAL for the WOMEN since 1996.  I am SO SO PROUD of our GALS! This is what the Associated Press JUST said about Team USA!

 "The Americans lived up to the hype and then some, winning their first Olympic gold medal in women's gymnastics since 1996. Their score of 183.596 Tuesday was a whopping five points ahead of Russia. Romania won the bronze medal. The Americans had come into the last two Olympics as world champions, only to leave without a gold medal. But this team is the strongest, top to bottom, the Americans have ever had, and the rest of the world never stood a chance. The U.S. opened with a barrage of booming vaults, held their own on uneven bars and pulled away on balance beamBy the the time they got to floor exercise, the Russians were in tears on the sidelines, and the Americans turned the final event into a victory party."

As they watched their daughter compete at the Olympic Games, the animated, anxious parents of gymnast Aly Raisman were quite a sight - they squirmed, they grimaced, they swayed from side to side as if to guide her through her routine. In near-unison, parents Ricky and Lynn Raisman seemed to will their teenager to "stick it" - her landing off the uneven bars, that is - and her proud dad rose to his feet and pump
ed his fist at the end. That's when the couple finally seemed to breathe again. Watching her parents can really stress you out it was hard not to laugh.  I want to PARTY with RICKY AND LYNN the NEXT time they are here in Los Angeles.  OMG.   Priceless!

 Team USA has totally melted down in the Men's Gymnastics Team Finals.  This is embarrassing.  How can we have such a poor performance from our elite gym guys. Jake Dalton, Jonathan Horton, Danell Levya, Sam Mikulak and John Orozco just didn't live up to the "hype."

 The United States men's team finished fifth with a score of 269.952 at the 2012 Olympic Games at the North Greenwich Arena well behind China who took the Gold with a 275.997, Japan took silver with a 271.952 and the Great Britain earned bronze with a 271.711. 

The Ukraine was fourth with a 271.526. 

So, now what?  It will be a long four years till Brazil.

What the hell is going on with this crop of Olympic athletes over in London?
On Monday a Swiss soccer player was expelled from the Olympics for his threatening and racist message on Twitter about South Koreans
The comments by Michel Morganella came hours after Switzerland lost to South Korea.
Morganella "discriminated against, insulted and violated the dignity of the South Korea football team as well as the South Korean people," Swiss Olympic team chief Gian Gilli said through a translator at a news conference. He said the player was stripped of his Olympic accreditation.

Rogelio Mauricio Harris: Feds at LAX foil scheme to smuggle meth disguised as candy bars

This is my crazy crime file story of the day here from our PEEPS at the FBI here in Los Angeles.  Guy attempts to smuggle METH out of the US in CANDY BARS.  Okay, now wait.  The guy attempted to take DRUGS OUT of the US....NOT the OTHER WAY AROUND.   This candy truly did MELT in your HANDS....  What a gooey mess.
LOS ANGELES — A Long Beach, Calif., man is expected to make his initial appearance in federal court Monday afternoon on charges he attempted to smuggle more than four pounds of methamphetamine out of the United States packaged to resemble a well-known brand of candy bar.
Rogelio Mauricio Harris, 34, was taken into custody Friday afternoon by special agents with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) as he prepared to board a flight to Japan.
The arrest came after officers with U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) conducting routine baggage inspections became suspicious of what appeared to be a large box of candy bars inside Harris' checked luggage. Upon closer inspection, CBP officers discovered the 45 individually wrapped, full-sized "candy bars" which contained a white substance that was subsequently determined to be methamphetamine. According to the criminal complaint, each bar "was coated in a chocolate-like substance to make the contents of the package appear to be a real candy bar."
"This seizure is a great example of the enforcement work that CBP officers perform every day at our ports of entry, to not only keep illegal contraband and illegal criminal proceeds from entering the country, but from leaving the country as well," said Todd C. Owen, CBP director of field operation in Los Angeles. "Our officers were diligent in their border security duties and prevented over four pounds of methamphetamine from making it to Japan."
Harris is charged in a federal criminal complaint with possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute. The charge carries a mandatory minimum penalty of 10 years in prison and a maximum penalty of life in prison. The case is being prosecuted by the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Central District of California.
"This scheme involved considerable planning and preparation and it shows the lengths to which smugglers will go in an attempt to elude detection," said Claude Arnold, special agent in charge for HSI Los Angeles. "The fact this ruse was detected should serve as a deterrent for others who might be considering trying similar tactics to conceal dangerous contraband."
The phony candy bars contained approximately 1,900 grams or just over four pounds of methamphetamine. HSI special agents say the seized contraband would have sold for as much as $250,000 on the street in Japan.
HSI's probe into the methamphetamine smuggling scheme is ongoing. Investigators say the imposter candy bar packaging is just the latest ruse employed by smugglers trying to transport illegal drugs through LAX. Other recent attempts have involved concealing the contraband in Easter eggs, snack food bags and cans of refried beans.
