Dijon Landrum Wiki – Dijon Landrum Bio
Glendora police this week arrested Dijon Landrum and released a man for allegedly stealing cars and other property three times on the same day, blaming California’s new bail policy for his inability to keep the suspect behind bars. In early April, the California Judicial Council set a new policy setting bail at zero for most misdemeanors and misdemeanors to keep the prison population low during the coronavirus crisis.

Police Reports & Investigation
As a result, according to Glendora police, they were unable to keep a car theft suspect in custody, and ended up arresting him three times within 12 hours for separate thefts, the latest resulting in a car chase. The first arrest was on Wednesday morning, after officers responded at 8:28 a.m. to a report of a man trying to get into vehicles on South Grand Avenue. When the officers got there, the man was allegedly leaving in a stolen vehicle. Police arrested the suspect and said he had also stolen property and drugs with him. The suspect was identified as Dijon Landrum, 24, of Monterey Park. Glendora police arrested Landrum, but say they were unable to keep him behind bars because of the state bail policy. Landrum received a summons and was released.
Just an hour after his release, police received a call about a man walking through a neighborhood near Bennett and Pennsylvania, carrying a box and walking through the front yards. He was allegedly picking up items from the yards and placing them in the box as he walked through the neighborhood. Officers appeared and found Landrum in the neighborhood with stolen items in his possession. Again, a summons was issued to him and he was released. Later that night, at 8:49 p.m., police were called about a vehicle that had been stolen from a parking lot in the 1300 block of South Grand Avenue. With the help of the Sheriff’s Department and the CHP, authorities tracked the vehicle heading west on Highway 10 in La Puente.
They chased the driver and eventually caught up with him in Pasadena and arrested Landrum again, for possession of a stolen vehicle and for evading officers. Once again, they issued him a summons and released him. The bail policy was established when California jails and prisons cope with coronavirus outbreaks among the prison population. In places like the federal Terminal Island facility in San Pedro, there have been at least five inmate deaths and hundreds of inmate-to-staff cases.
