United Tow Owner Arrested
EGP News Service
Los Angeles Police Department detectives on Tuesday arrested South Gate based United Tow Company owner Shahram Shayesteh on two felony counts in connection with a criminal threat made during a February telephone conversation between two Bell Gardens city councilmen.
Shahram Shayesteh allegedly eavesdropped on a telephone conversation between council members Mario Beltran and Daniel Crespo. While Beltran was aware that Shayesteh was on the phone line, Crespo was not.
“We served search warrants last June at the United Tow Company in South Gate as well as at two other places,” said Lieutenant Paul Vernon of the LAPD Central Detective Division. The other two places were Bell Gardens City Hall and the home of Beltran.“Information from that search led to an arrest warrant for Mr. Shayesteh for obstructing a public official and making criminal threats.”
Detectives arrested Shayesteh at his home in the 5300 block of Donna Avenue in Tarzana around 10 a.m. and he was booked at the downtown Metropolitan Jail. Bail was set at $85 thousand.
The arrest stems from the investigation of a criminal complaint filed at the Central Police Station last February by “a person who reported that he was threatened during a telephone conversation,” according to the LAPD.
As previously reported by EGP, the threat is alleged to have originated from a disagreement over the awarding of a $5 million contract for towing services in Bell Gardens and was made against Crespo.
Authorities allege that Crespo told Beltran he had received a threat from Shayesteh after a council meeting last November when he raised concerns about the contract.
When contacted, Crespo said he could not comment on the matter due to the ongoing investigation.
EGP reported earlier this year that Crespo had complained that Beltran had “set him up,” and had secretly arranged the telephone conversation— which he (Crespo) believed would be private— to discuss concerns over the awarding of the lucrative towing contract. But according to Crespo, Beltran had arranged for a representative of the towing company to be on the line to secretly listen in on the conversation during which Shayesteh spoke up and threated Crespo.
Councilman Beltran could not be reached for comment. REMEMBER WHEN YOU VOTE RODRIGUIZ IS PART OF THIS CORRUPTION..READ THE ARTICLES IN THE LA WEEKLY

Dear all:

The election is over and the residents of Bell Gardens re-elected Jennifer Rodriguez and Pedro Aceituno with a historical landslide: Rodriguez got 1425 votes (30.4%) Aceituno got 1258 (26.83%) next the Crespo-backed slate of Lopez and Silva received only 620 and 548 votes respectively (13.23% and 11.69 %) Former councilman Duran and his running mate Valdivia got 317 and 230 votes (6.76 and 4.91%) the other 5 candidates received less than 100 votes each and less than 2% of the vote.
Now, I am no political expert, but this was a major victory for the incumbants over a 9 challengers. Nine challengers! I have check statistics for the city's previous elections and I was not able to find an election in which the margin of victory was so huge.

What does this mean? Voters in Bell Gardens chose to keep those two candidates who have been mentioned in this blog so many times. They did something very good to have such high approval rate with the real, everyday, voters of the city.

I would be interested to hear what critics have to say about this election result and please do not blame the county or city because to ensure that there were no cheating Councilman Crespo and his family and commissioners worked at several of the polling locations on election day.

What happened?? The voters have spoken! Any comments?

Viva los latinos? Your the racist. You're the type of person who would vote for a Latino over any other race just based on race. You have to take into consideration the persons' morales. A corrupt piece of crap is a corrupt piece of crap despite ethnic background.

“Being honored with this prestigious award for the second consecutive year, in addition to receiving a favorable independent audit, are a measurement of meeting stringent professional accounting standards

What a bunch of BS shouldn't that be standard why do you toot your horn for something you are suppose to be doing for the residents of your community. Yes, I agree Karma has already come back to bite some in CH and the PD>>The CM left and COP has taken some heat for his little stunts. Now why did he renew his license to practice law after 14 years? Of course the council and the cop are joined at the hips. It shall be fun to see the next election.
