SAN LUIS OBISPO COUNTY - On July 15 2019, Atascadero State Hospital police officers assisted the San Luis Obispo Sheriff's Office with a parole and probation compliance check conducted in Northern San Luis Obispo County. During the compliance check, law enforcement officers arrested 13 people who either had charges or were found not to be in compliance with the terms of their probation or parole. Of the 13, one was cited and released.
Also assisting with the enforcement operation were San Luis Obispo County Probation, CHP, Paso Robles Police Department, Atascadero Police Department, San Luis Obispo Police Department and the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation Parole Unit.
Specialized sweeps are conducted periodically across the county in an effort to deter crime and enforce probation terms of people released from custody or wanted on specific charges. The following people were arrested:
1-Lisa Becerra, 47, Paso Robles, probation violation
2-Felix Becerra, 49, Paso Robles, probation violation
3-Christopher Burrell, 44, Atascadero, PRCS violator and possession of stun gun by felon
4-Paul Yciano, 22, Paso Robles, probation violation
5-Clayton Linell, 19, Paso Robles, probation violation and warrant
6-Lia Taylor, 49, Paso Robles, probation violation
7-Prentice Booker, 59, Paso Robles, sale of a controlled substance, possession of methamphetamine, and possession of paraphernalia
8-Scott Helberg, 33, Paso Robles, parole violation
9-Enrique Rubio, 35, Paso Robles, parole violation
10-James Casselman, 32, Paso Robles, possessions of short barreled rifle/shotgun, possession of a zip gun
11-Brandon Hampton, 39, Paso Robles, probation violation
12-Corey Kelley-Armer, 37, Paso Robles, warrants.
“Compliance checks put law enforcement officers in harms way, as the very folks they are checking on have already been convicted of crimes,” said California Statewide Law Enforcement Association (CSLEA) President Alan Barcelona. “By conducting these compliance checks, officers are working to keep our communities safe. If those on parole or probation are violating the terms of their release, they are not heading down a stellar, law-abiding path.”
