On February 10, 2020 Barbara Bonilla was escorted from her office of Executive Director of San Mateo County Sheriff Activities League (SAL). The SAL is a division of the Sheriff’s Office. At that time Barbara Bonilla was employed by the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office.

Barbra Bonilla is well connected and well known for her Fund Raising abilities. She was also Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos’s Campaign Manager for his 2018 run for Sheriff. April 2017 She donated $1,000 to his campaign. She was on the Boards of National PAL, California PAL, Redwood City Rotary, San Mateo County Parks and Rec Commission.

In May of 2020 she resigned from the Sheriff’s Office. Why? She was not charged with any crime and even if she was it doesn’t mean there is any evidence of a crime. The former Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez case is a prefect example of that. “Smuggling a Cell Phone and Drugs to a Hells Angel Gang member in SMC Jail.” ZERO evidence to support those charges, they were dismissed.

San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe referred the Criminal Investigation to the State of California Attorney General because he was a member of the board of SAL. He wanted to avoid the Appearance of a Conflict of Interest. That is always a Good Idea when Public Trust is an issue.

San Mateo County Sheriff’Office should have done the same. Why would Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos and all Sheriff Employees think they should Investigate Barbara Bonilla at all. If Steve Wagstaffe couldn’t Investigate it for an Appearance of a Conflict of Interest certainly the Sheriff’s Office had more of a Conflict of Interest.

The A.G.’s Office and the Sheriff’s Office worked together in the Criminal Investigation of Embezzlement & Laundering. The DOJ had expected to have Barbara Bonilla Arrested as early as April 2, 2020, but that arrest did not occur. Why?

Laundering Money, one of the easiest ways to accomplish this is Prepaid Gift Cash Cards you buy at many Stores. Did this element exist in the SAL Investigation? YES it did.

Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos News Release December 4, 2020 Bonilla Arrest

The last sentence in the SMCSO News Release dated December 4, 2010 says: “this investigation is still underway and being handled by an outside agency.” It doesn’t identify that outside agency WHY?

When I asked SMCDA Steve Wagstaffe who’s Criminal Investigation was this he informed me it was the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office.

December 12, 2020

Good morning Michael,

It was charged by the Attorney General’s Office, so it would be described as a DOJ case.  I believe that is how it would be listed in statewide statistics, since I believe they list the prosecuting agency. But the investigating agency would be the Sheriff’s Office.

Thanks

Steve

At this moment it is still unclear Who the Investigative Agency was and is.

Normally I would attend the Court proceeding, Today I will not, there is a Pandemic. Stay Safe

Welcome to San Mateo County

Another False News Release by SMC Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos.

By Michael G. Stogner

Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos

A reasonable person in San Mateo County would know by now not to believe anything Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos or his Public Information Officers publish or provide to the public.

The News Releases dated October 3, 2018 involving the Homicide by Deputies of Chinedu V. Okobi is just one example.

The Recent Homicide by Deputies of Sandra Lee Harmon May 5, 2020 Half Moon Bay is another.

Now we have a News release issued December 4, 2020 by the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office about Barbara Bonilla being arrested on December 4, 2020. On Friday, December 4, 2020, Bonilla was booked into the San Mateo County Jail on 7 counts of Grand Theft. Bail was set at $70,000. That is a Baldface Lie. If that was a TRUE statement there would be a Booking Photo dated December 4, 2020. Its that simple.

SMC Sheriff News Release 12/4/2020

You’ll notice there is No Booking Photo provided by the Sheriff’s Office, Why? Did any of the other print media request the Booking Photo of Barbara Bonilla? I have.

From the News Release: “SAL is a non-profit organization affiliated with the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office.” That is an understatement, Sheriff Activities League (SAL) is a Division of San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office.

From the News Release: “The investigation determined that approximately $25,000 was missing.

Did the State of California Department of Justice (DOJ) Investigate the Sheriff Activities League Executive Director and others for 10 months for approximately $25,000 of MISSING money. The Investigation was for Embezzlement and Laundering not Missing money. Why did the Investigation take 10 months if it was only $25,000?

I would like to see what the DOJ says the total amount is, not what Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos says.

Why was Barbara Bonilla not arrested on April 2, 2020 as the DOJ expected?

Barbara Bonilla SAL Embezzlement case. Police Report SEALED, Why?

By Michael G. Stogner

Barbara Bonilla

This case is being Prosecuted by the State of California A.G. Office.

The Public understands that people are just human beings and there a bad apples everywhere. When one is discovered we the people expect those who know to speak up, Notify the Public Immediately. San Mateo County Sheriff Activity League of all the organizations involving Children, Volunteers, Donors and Sheriff Deputies should have been the first group of people to inform the Public about this Embezzlement. All 7 Print Media in SMC should have had front page stories about this on February 10, 2020. None of them did. ClimateRWC should have had the story first Adam Alberti the Editor is on SAL Board, he knew.

Barbara Bonilla x Sheriff Activities League Director Finally Arrested.

By Michael G. Stogner

Barbara Bonilla

Update December 11, 2020: It turns out there is NO EVIDENCE to support Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos News Release of December 4, 2020 “On Friday, December 4, 2020, Bonilla was booked into the San Mateo County Jail on 7 counts of Grand Theft. Bail was set at $70,000.” No booking photo, and no record of her being in Jail or Court until December 9, 2020.

Sheriff Bolanos 12/4/2020 News Release

This case is being Prosecuted by the State of California A.G. Office.

Barbara Bonilla the former Campaign Manager for Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos in 2018, and a former San Mateo County Sheriff Employee until she resigned while being investigated by the State of California Department of Justice since February 10, 2020 when she was escorted from the SAL offices in Redwood City. She was also on the San Mateo County Parks and Recreation Commission, as well as on the Boards for State and Federal Police Activity Leagues (PAL) Associations.

She has been charged with 7 felony counts after being Independently Investigated by the A.G.’s Office for Embezzlement and Laundering. San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe had to refer the Investigation to the A.G. because he is also on the Sheriff Activity League Board. Her bail was set at $70,000 she should be out by now.

Here is the Short List of people who knew and said nothing.

HMBR August 14, 2020 State Concluded it’s Investigation.

If that were true what took so long to file charges? Thats over 3 months to file charges.

Why would the Police Report be ordered Sealed?

Sandra L. Harmon, Andres Gaurdado both Shot in Back with Hands up.

By Michael G. Stogner

What did Sandra Lee Harmon R.I.P. and Andres Gaurdado R.I.P. have in common. They were both killed by Sheriff Deputies in their counties. Sandra was shot 3 times in the back and Andres was shot 5 times in the back all 8 shots were FATAL. Both Sandra and Andres had their Hands Up above their Heads when they were shot.

Who doesn’t want to get to the truth here? The list is long.

In San Mateo Mateo County the short list is Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos, District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe, Coroner Robert Foucrault, County Counsel John Beiers, Charles Joseph, and David Silberman who’s daughter Sara works for the Sheriff.

The issue is simple Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos and others want the public to believe them when they tell lies. I want to believe the highest ranking Law Enforcement Officials in San Mateo County. We all want to believe the highest ranking Law Enforcement Officials in SMC.

They told us there was a shootout, Sandra fired first, the scared for his life deputy returned fire and she died. No mention she was unarmed, she had her hands up above her head with her back to Deputy Dominguez who all by himself fired 11 shots at her. No mention that 3 of the 14 shell casings were moved (Evidence Tampering) That’s a bad thing.

They told us it’s unfortunate but the scared for his life deputy didn’t turn his AXON BODY CAMERA on at the time of the killing.

The AXON LOG RECORDS of the Sandra Lee Harmon Homicide by San Mateo County Sheriff Deputies on May 5, 2020 in Half Moon Bay belong to the Public. The Public paid for them.

Body Worn Cameras are for the Protection of both Law Enforcement Officers as well as the Public. They provide truth of what really happened that night in the parking lot behind the Pasta Moon.

San Mateo County Counsel Attorney David Silberman has a long history of representing Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos interests. Look what he did to former Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez, he protected Sgt. Jason Peardon, or for former San Mateo County Sheriff Sergeant Mike Otte who not only lied, but committed Perjury in Hon. Judge Lisa Novak Court.

David Silberman is standing in the way of the Public verifying what they already suspect. Why?

Mark Melville Sheriff Candidate for 2022 less than 2 years from now has already said several times that he will release to the public the AXON LOG RECORDS that David Silberman is so adamant the Public will never see.

The City of Half Moon Bay should sue San Mateo County for the AXON LOG RECORDS today. They should not hesitate, what the council has done so far with asking the A.G. to Investigate the Sandra Lee Harmon Homicide is Historical, and they have requested from Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos the AXON LOG RECORDS, that Mark Melville has said he will gladly provide to them when he becomes Sheriff of San Mateo County.

Citizen David Eblovi has informed the City of Half Moon Bay that he will sue the County for the AXON LOG RECORDS if he has to. Don’t make a Citizen do the work the City should do.

After the Public gets the AXON LOG RECORDS, and if it turns out the story provided by the SMC Government is false, David Silberman should be fired.

x San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez, in Court today.

By Michael G. Stogner

Juan P. Lopez

I can’t think of a more Important Story to write about on this day. Sure there are many other subjects like who is going to be the President of the United States of America. Let me tell you why I choose to write about former Deputy Juan P. Lopez on this day.

For me there is no more Important subject in San Mateo County than Corruption, and Abuse of Authority and Office.

I was on the phone with Juan Lopez when he was Arrested with guns to his head Six Years ago. That’s right I said Six Years ago.

Zain Jaffer

Zain Jaffer was Arrested for Attempted Murder and 6 Felonies. His Criminal case went through the San Mateo County Justice System in less than 9 months, and that included the Preliminary Hearing where all charges were approved by the Evidence and Testimony presented in Court. The Attempted Murder Charge was never charged by the District Attorney’s Office for some reason. Arrested October 15, 2017 DISMISSED July 2,2018.

I was hoping to hear from Zain Jaffer by now to share with him some cases of abuse by the District Attorney’s Office, Wrongfully Charged, Over Charged etc. As he claimed he was interested in helping now that he knew how it felt to be Wrongfully Charged. Per his prepared statement made July 2, 2018. Matthews Craves, Vincent Valencia, and of course Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez are just a few of the many cases I can think of.

SMCSO Sergeant Michael Otte

San Mateo County Sheriff Sergeant Michael Otte who worked in Half Moon Bay Patrol Committed Perjury in Judge Lisa Novak’s Courtroom, He was on the Witness Stand under oath and he lied about videoing with his cellphone the arrest of a female Half Moon Bay Resident. The Judge, Sheriff Office, District Attorney’s Office, and David Silberman of the San Mateo Counsel were and still are aware of the PERJURY. Sergeant Michael Otte was never charged as a matter of fact Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos not only allowed him to retire he gave him a retirement send off.

SMCSO Sergeant Lou Aguino

San Mateo County Sheriff Sergeant Louis Aquino Arrested by Redwood City Police Department for DUI. RWCPD has two Daily Activity Log records. His arrest was not made public. I was the first to report it.

Lt. Kristina Bell

San Mateo County Sheriff Lt. Kristina Bell 911 Domestic Violence Call to her residence by her partner, Redwood City Police at her home for hours. No ARREST made. Violation of San Mateo County Domestic Violence Policy. This response by RWCPD was not made public by the Police Department. I was the first to report it.

Barbara Bonilla

San Mateo County Sheriff Employee Barbara Bonilla who was the Executive Director of the Sheriff Activities League was escorted out of her office on Feb. 10, 2020, She has resigned from the Sheriff’s Office which is a Big Deal, She has been removed from the State PAL and Federal PAL Boards. The Sheriff’s Office and the Department of Justice have and are Investigating her for Embezzlement and Laundering of SAL Funds. She has not been charged with any crime yet. That’s 10 months of a “Those Who Matter” person not being charged by the DOJ. That is longer than the Zain Jaffer case from Arrest to DISSMISSAL. I was the first to report it.

The Department of Justice has received a letter from the City of Half Moon Bay requesting an Independent Criminal Investigation of the Sandra L. Harmon Homicide by Sheriff Deputies on May 5, 2020. This is a Historical Request by a City Council and it is Very Healthy to question Authority especially when so many False statements by Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos and District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe were made to the Public.

San Mateo County Sheriff Sergeant Jason Peardon recently received a Distinguished Medal from Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos. I have publicly stated and written about Sergeant Jason Peardon being a Brady Officer. The City of Belmont has finally provided the Court with the documents that Juan Lopez’s attorney had to sue them to provide. He will be on the Witness stand in the Juan P. Lopez Criminal Trial hopefully going before a JURY soon.

Some of you know I have been recommending an AUDIT of the Sheriff’s Office, District Attorney’s Office, Coroner’s Office, Private Defender Program etc. Audits are the easiest way to assure honesty in the performance of these offices San Mateo County.

San Mateo County has no Print Media interested in providing this information.

Please follow the Deputy Sheriff Juan P. Lopez case. November 16, 2020 set for Jury Trial, I’ll update. Remember if they can do this to a Sheriff Deputy they can do this to YOU.

Thank You

San Mateo Daily Journal Endorses Adam Eisen for HMB City Council.

By Michael G. Stogner

That is another reason to VOTE for Joaquin Jimenez.

You will recall the San Mateo Daily Journal Endorsed Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos for Sheriff in the 2018. They stated “We believe Sheriff Bolanos.” They went even further to promote a completely fabricated and unsubstantiated claim, “about Carlos G. Bolanos was outside the residence the entire time.”

Approximately 11 years ago, then undersheriff Carlos Bolanos was detained as part of an FBI investigation into a prostitution ring in Clark County, Nevada. Also detained was then sheriff Greg Munks. Although an initial news report located Bolanos in the brothel with Munks, later reports indicated he was outside the entire time.

I have asked Editor Jon Mays to provide me with the later reports he referenced above, he refused to do so. That is because there are no recent reports.

Here is what I know about Joaquin Jimenez, if he was a council member attending the September 15, 2020 HMB Special Meeting re: the Homicide of Sandra Harmon by San Mateo County Sherif Deputies. He would not have thought about having SMC District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe come to another ZOOM meeting after hearing the Eblovi Investigation Presentation at the 27:30 mark about 8 minutes. It clearly demonstrated “TAMPERING of EVIDENCE, Three Shell Casings moved, Two Bullets holes never mentioned. FALSIFYING POLICE RECORDS, 3 FATAL SHOTS TO BACK. Sandra Harmon being shot at while unarmed etc.

The simple fact that Steve Wagstaffe stated at 50:48 mark.

“We did find 11 casings they mention 3 others. We took their guns right from the beginning.” “In there 11 rounds had been fired and we found 11 casings.”

“I think that confirms where we were.”

“That is the answer to that.”

The reality is 14 Spent Shell Casings NOT 11 were recovered from the Crime Scene, May 5, 2020 in Half Moon Bay that night. HMB Mayor Adam Eisen knew that. Why would he allow the District Attorney to make such a patently FALSE statement to the Council and public?

HMBCC Special Meeting 9/15/2020

This is just One Reason San Mateo County News.com is Endorsing Joaquin Jimenez for Half Moon Bay City Council 2020.

A Vote for Joaquin Jimenez is not just good for the City of Half Moon Bay its good for the Residents of San Mateo County.

Dear Ms. Joyce Blair of the Attorney General’s Office.

By Michael G. Stogner

I’m sure you don’t remember me, but I was the San Mateo County Resident/Citizen that reported the Criminal Conduct by Law Enforcement in the Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez case back in 2015. Specifically the Hacking of two Computer Systems one the State of California and the other the Federal USPS. You recommended I file it with San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe which I did. He of course couldn’t investigate it because of Conflict of Interest and sent it back to you. You did not investigate it.

I reported it to the Board of Supervisors at the Public meeting. They thanked me for my comment.

Video: BOS Meeting 2015

As you might be aware I have communicated with a few of your DOJ Investigators in the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Activity League Embezzlement and Laundering Investigation involving former Sheriff Employee Barbara Bonilla who was the Executive Director of SAL. According to HMB Chief Saul Lopez that is still a Ongoing Investigation.

I will be forwarding you my personal request as a citizen to please conduct an Independent Criminal Investigation in the Sandra L. Harmon, Chinedu Okobi (San Mateo County’s George Floyd case) and Yanira Serrano Garcia cases. They are all Homicides by Law Enforcement of SMC Sheriff Office.

The similarities are Tampering with Evidence, False and Misleading Press Releases, Edited Videos with false and misleading Captions, Filing false Police Reports etc.

San Mateo County Sheriff S.A.L. xExecutive Director Barbara Bonilla Embezzlement Investigation is still ongoing.

By. Michael G. Stogner

Barbara Bonilla

During the City of Half Moon Bay Special Meeting held September 1, 2020, San Mateo County Sheriff Captain Saul Lopez gave his annual report to the Council. Part of his report included the Sheriff Activities League and all the efforts his Deputies had accomplished and how many children and families were impacted. After his presentation Councilman Harvey Rarback asked probably the most important question of the entire meeting. He asked Captain Saul Lopez if he could comment on the SAL financial situation?

San Mateo County Sheriff Captain Saul Lopez

That situation would be the DOJ Embezzlement and Laundering Investigation of Barbara Bonilla that has been going on for a long time. I was the only reporter to write about it on February 28, 2020 and at that time I could only report that Barbara Bonilla was escorted out of her office and was on administrative leave. Since that time we know she has quit the SMC Sheriff’s Office, which I still don’t know why, has been removed from the State & National PAL Organizations. To this day she has not been charged with any crime. I now know thanks to Sheriff Captain Saul Lopez that that Investigation by the Department of Justice is ongoing and he informed the council he was unable to comment on the subject.

My question to the Half Moon Bay City Council and the City Manager is this, What was the first date that Sheriff Captain Saul Lopez informed you that the Top Executive for the San Mateo County Sheriff Activity League was removed from her office and there is an Investigation ongoing. Was it before my article February 28, 2020? Did he ever report it to you?

The meeting also pointed out exactly how our system works, SAL interacts with children teaching them important life lessons and when one of the adults gets caught, the children learn how the system really works, the adults keep quiet, nobody talks about it. The entire council should put this subject on the agenda. Ask Captain Saul Lopez what did he know and when did he know it?

X San Mateo County Sheriff Activities League Executive Director Barbara Bonilla, Investigated for Embezzlement & Money Laundering.

By Michael G. Stogner

There is no question Barbara Bonilla stole a lot of money from SAL. The question for San Mateo County Residents is so what, Who is going to do anything about it? You can already tell how this is playing out. Nobody said a word until it was finally written about.

Barbara Bonilla was also the former campaign manager for Carlos G. Bolanos for Sheriff 2018. I first reported that she was on Administrative Leave in an article dated February 28, 2020. Now thanks to another Concerned Citizen named John Ullom we have a much clearer picture of what has been taken place behind the scenes of Law Enforcement in California. Today I have asked the Sheriff of San Mateo County Carlos G. Bolanos if he would answers a few simple questions, He has refused to answer so far, I will publish if and when he responds.

To Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos & PIO Rosemerry Blankswade,              August 14, 2020

Hello Sheriff Bolanos, and Rosemerry Blankswade,
Can you tell me What agency escorted Barbara Bonilla out of her Office at SAL and what date did that action happen?
What date did she resign from the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office?
Is the Investigation by Sgt Michael Leishman completed and if so what date was it completed and what was his recommendation?
Has she been arrested or charged yet?
Thank You

To my knowledge Barbara Bonilla has not been charged with any crime and she has not been arrested, which makes her resigning from the SMC Sheriff’s Office in May even more questionable.
The DOJ has been conducting the criminal Investigation and San Mateo County Sheriff Sgt. Michael Leishman has been conducting some type of Internal Investigation most likely not criminal.
I do know that a Search Warrant and hopefully an arrest was expected on April 2, 2020. As of today there is NO Official Statement from the DOJ. Another interesting point is the Fact that SAL has Never been Audited. That is a terrible idea. Another terrible idea is how many Sheriff Employees were involved in this investigation. District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe recused himself and his office because he is on the Board of Directors of SAL.
Now we wait to see what the DOJ is going to do. Remember Barbara Bonilla is not charged with any crime and has not been arrested. It’s been 7 months.
