Radio call of Suspicious Subject Results in Suspect Barricaded in a Stolen U-Haul Truck

On January 27, 2022, at approximately 1305 hours, CCPD officers received a radio call of a suspicious subject who was inside of a U-Haul truck in the 10100 block of Washington Blvd.

Upon the officer’s arrival, they observed a female subject seated inside of driver seat of a U-haul truck.  The responding officers conducted a DMV check of the U-Haul which revealed that the truck was stolen out of San Diego County on 01/26/22. Officers attempted to ask the female to exit the vehicle, however she was non-compliant and refused to exit the vehicle.

Officers from the Department’s Mental Health Evaluation Team, along with the Department’s Crisis Negotiation Team responded to the scene and attempted to build a rapport with the female. Officers from these units attempted to negotiate with the female for approximately two hours in an effort to have her exit the vehicle peacefully, however she refused to do so.

Officers ultimately formulated a plan to safely contact the female who was taken into custody without incident. It was determined that the female suffered from mental health issues and she was taken to a local hospital for a psychiatric evaluation.

Anyone with any information or questions regarding this incident, please contact the Culver City Police Department Public Information Officer, Sergeant Eddie Baskaron at 310-253-6316 or the Watch Commander at 310-253-6202.
