San Mateo County Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos doesn’t like to answer simple questions. He also doesn’t like to provide the Public with information that the public has a right to know.
Yesterday I asked him to confirm the identity of one George Ismael who was booked into San Mateo County Jail on December 24, 2021. The reason I was asking was that Carlos G. Bolanos has a very bad habit of witholding the Booking Photos, Names of “Those Who Matter” who happen to get arrested from the Daily Press/News Releases. It’s as if they never got arrested.
One of the very basic jobs the Sheriff’s Office does is Book people into the jail who are arrested by any law enforcement agency in San Mateo County. They keep a daily record and of course that information belongs to the public. The reason Carlos G. Bolanos does as he pleases is because the 5 County Supervisors couldn’t care less. It’s sort of their little secret, how Government really works.

Good morning Sheriff Bolanos
Can you please tell me if the George Ismael who was arrested and booked into San Mateo County Jail on December 24, 2021 is the same George Ismael who was arrested with Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez in 2014 for Smuggling 2 cellphones and Drugs to a Hells Angel Gang Member who was an Inmate in Maguire Jail?
This is another perfect example of why I recommend ALL Booking Photos be released everyday. I wouldn’t have to bother you from your important work for this Public Information.

As it turns out this is the same George Ismael that was arrested and Charged for Smuggling 2 Cellphones and Drugs to a Hells Angel Gang Member in the San Mateo County Jail the same jail he was just booked into. Also Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos and his management TEAM probably thought it would be better to not inform the Voters that George Ismael used to work for Sheriff Bolanos as a Correctional Officer.
You might remember that San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez was Falsely Charged with the exact same crime at the same time in 2014 even though all Investigators knew there was ZERO EVIDENCE connecting him to the crime. They didn’t care they thought it was funny.
