San Mateo County Sheriff Vehicle involved in the Death of a CHP Traffic stop suspect.

By Michael G. Stogner

Last night around 10:30 PM April 6, 2021 the CHP made a traffic stop in the Southbound lanes of Highway 101 just south of Millbrae Ave. The deceased exited his vehicle and before could be arrested and placed in the CHP vehicle he ran across the 4 southbound lanes and crossed over the divide and was struck and killed by the San Mateo County Sheriff SUV driven by Sgt. Andy Ward who was traveling northbound 101 in the fast lane.

The deceased was a 30 something year old male not identified yet.

It’s not clear yet wether he was handcuffed when he ran?

No mention of this on Sheriff’s Website.

Another False Statement by SMC Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos.

By Michael G. Stogner

Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos

This should come as no surprise to any reasonable thinking resident of San Mateo County.

His identification was unknown until January 2021 when detectives received a break in the case from a witness who identified the suspect as 30-year-old Kaylan Freeman from the San Mateo County Coast.”

That is a False Statement, Just ask San Mateo County Sheriff Sergeant Gonzales, The San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office knew who Kaylan Freeman was since March 2014.

Press Release

The real question is, What was the Sheriff’s Office really doing since 2012?

Sheriff’s Office eliminated SHOP and all dedicated, sexual-offense investigators with a 75% reduction in staffing in 2007 right after Operation Dollhouse the FBI Sting Operation.

What happens when San Mateo County Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos lies to the public? Nothing.

Update: I forgot to mention during the Campaign for Sheriff 2018 Candidate Mark Melville told every Editor who met with him that Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos was a LIAR. Not one of the Print Media Newspapers printed that.

This case was investigated as an Embezzlement and Laundering case involving SAL FUNDS.

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

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?

Half Moon Bay Beaches OPEN Labor Day Weekend.

By Michael G. Stogner

Half Moon Bay City Council voted 5-0 last night to keep the Beaches in Half Moon Bay Open while Monterey County, Santa Cruz County and the City of Pacifica have decided to Close Beaches and Parking Lots.

There is a Worldwide PANDEMIC, No Cure, No Treatment, No Vaccine but that has never been a concern for San Mateo County Leadership. They have consistently been dedicated to Staying off of the States Watchlist, or Getting Off of the States Watchlist. That might be why they have made so many changes to the Data Base, None of it matches.

Back to the Beaches of Half Moon Bay you can’t blame the elected officials in this case, so many moving parts and they don’t get paid for this. The City Manager, Assistant Manager, Sheriff, Chief of Police they do, the Chief who by the way said he would make some calls to see if he could get some extra staff to enforce the closure of Beaches if they voted to close. Think about that, He didn’t say Of Course I will get the extra staff I need to enforce your decision. This is San Mateo County, now known as Silicon Valley and the Police Chief says its going to be tough to enforce it. All five council members were OK with his response.

Even from a simple Math point of view, This is a very bad idea. Half Moon Bay and the SMC Coast experience Gridlock on normal weekends, watch what happens now. This is an invitation to the world the Party is in Half Moon Bay this Labor Day Weekend.

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
Michael G. Stogner
San Mateo County News.com
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.

SMC Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos should RESIGN.

By Michael G. Stogner

As some of you know I personally requested Carlos G. Bolanos resign from San Mateo County Law Enforcement on May 14, 2007 Certified Mail.

CarlosG.Bolanos

Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos

Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos has a bad habit of lying to the public. He has been doing that for a long, long time. San Mateo County Supervisors Warren Slocum, Don Horsley, Dave Pine, Dave Canepa and Carole Groom, County Counsel John Beiers, David Silberman, County Manager Mike Callagy are all fully aware of this and are not only fine with this fact but endorse this behavior.

Recently Sheriff Bolanos after 45 days released a video presentation of the Execution of Unarmed Sandra Harmon on May 5, 2020 7:25 PM at 845 Main Street Half Moon Bay, California. Sheriff Bolanos was quick to inform the public that she fired her shotgun at Deputy Dominguez who was taking cover behind his SUV Patrol Vehicle which was parked sideways right in front of her about 20 feet away. He reports to his sergeant that she fired two rounds which just happens to be all the shotgun holds which means it is now empty. Threat is diminished substantially. Adding to that threat downgrading is the fact that she no longer is in possession of the shotgun. At the 8:00 mark of the video provided to the pubic by Sheriff Bolanos you can hear Deputy Dominguez yell Put you hands up and see Unarmed Sandra Harmon with hers hands up and above head you can also hear FIVE shots being fired at her by 8:06 mark. Why?

Sheriff Bolanos’s Video

Sheriff Bolanos is a master at misinformation, he and most of the media focus on Sandra Harmon Jay Walking & Reaching for an Empty Gun instead. If that sounds familiar it should Chinedu Okobi killed by 6 Sheriff Employees October 3, 2018. All violated their Oath refused to provide medical aide for more than 8 minutes and Lied about it.

San Mateo County Residents should ask Sheriff Bolanos What is your policy regarding a Deputy shooting at an Unarmed citizen? So far it is Kill Now Lie Later.

Sheriff Bolanos doesn’t mention it at all. He should RESIGN. Sheriff Bolanos tells us that Deputy Dominguez did not turn on his Body Camera for the conversation and shooting of Sandra Harmon. I might point out Deputy Dominguez has not said that. Deputy Dominguez went by himself to the motorhome with no body camera on is the story Carlos Bolanos is pushing. Why would a reasonable person believe that?

The good news is even if that were true, it really doesn’t matter because the In-Car Camera /Audio System will have recorded his conversation and we will be able to clearly hear the Shotgun Blasts. A reasonable person would expect to see damage to the patrol car with 2 rounds fired at a Deputy taking cover behind it less than 20 feet away.

What did Sergeant James E. Goulart recommend? What was the plan if he encountered the woman with a Shotgun, why was he alone?

That is exactly what happened when Yanira Serrano-Garcia was killed by Sheriff Deputy within 20 seconds of exiting his patrol vehicle. He was alone and No Plan. That 911 call was a Non Emergency Medial assistance call.

Chinedu Okobi’s Homicide by Six San Mateo County Sheriff Employees October 3, 2018 there was NO 911 call.  No Plan

San Mateo County Sheriff Policy

Supervisor Don Horsley is Dishonest. It’s that simple.

By Michael G. Stogner

Supervisor Don Horsley

Think about this when you read the Nice description below about children and San Mateo County Sheriff Deputies, This goes back to when Supervisor Don Horsley was Sheriff of San Mateo County and had a Deputy Mary Koziol R.I.P. who worked as Resource Officer at Garfield Elementary School K-8 in Menlo Park. Her partner reported her sleeping with a female student at that school to SMCSO Sgt. Al Cantera who reported it to Victoria O’Brian who reported it to Sheriff Don Horsley, The results he had a talk with her, she didn’t stop he promoted her to Sgt.

Ask Supervisor Don Horsley what actions he took as Sheriff when he learned she was having sex with one of the female students? Remember K-8

SAL was founded in 1997 by former Sheriff Don Horsley with the purpose of strengthening relationships between youth, deputies, and communities to aid in the intervention and prevention of juvenile delinquency in San Mateo County through positive, dynamic programs. The program was in North Fair Oaks and had a small presence on the coast, serving approximately 1,000 youth per year. In 2009, former Sheriff Greg Munks expanded the SAL program to 12 locations throughout the county, increased deputy support and established a community policing substation that was a permanent home for SAL programs. The program grew to serve approximately 3,500 youth per year.

Today, under the leadership of Sheriff Carlos Bolanos, the SAL program continues to thrive and is serving over 11,000 youth per year in programs, presentations and special events throughout San Mateo County. In light of events in 2015, President Obama called for law enforcements agencies to engage in community policing to build relationships with their communities. The San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office, thanks to our leadership, has been engaged in community policing practices for over 20 years and continues to be a progression organization that adapts to the needs of our communities.

Now S.A.L. is in the News again this time for Embezzlement of $500K-$800K. Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos says he expects the Attorney General of California to finish it’s Investigation within 3 weeks. When did the A.G. Office open it’s investigation?

The former Executive Director Barbara Bonilla was Escorted out of her office February 10, 2020 and placed on Administrative Leave. I wrote an article about it on February 28, 2020. She also was a top official with California PAL and National PAL.

Michael Stogner <michaelgstogner@yahoo.com>To: Don Horsley Cc: Chris Hunter Thu, May 28 at 6:16 PM

Hello Don,
I’m doing an update of my S.A.L Executive Director Barbara Bonilla being on Administrative Leave Story, that I wrote Feb 28, 2020. I was the only SMC Media to report it, Now I am updating it to include Embezzlement Allegations and others involved. I know you have known about this for almost 5 months.
Would you like to make any comment at this time, When did you first became aware of it, did you report it to the A.G.? 
Are you aware of the Sheriff’s Office doing an internal Investigation? Do you think that is appropriate considering who is involved?
Can you tell me what date Barbara Bonilla resigned? Her name is still on the website.


Thank You
Michael G. Stogner

San Mateo County News.com

Don Horsley chose not to answer any of my questions, He did make comments to HMBR reporter Libby Leyden, Horsley said “he was only aware that Bonilla was on administrative leave.”

I had to laugh when I read that because I would not have been able to write my article February 28, 2020 if it had not been for Supervisor Don Horsley talking about Embezzlement by Barbara Bonilla, and another individual that Don named which I will not name at this time.

The real story here is the hiding from the 750,000 SMC residents for 5 months an Embezzlement & Laundering case. One of the main reasons to hide it is to make sure the guilty people are never charged. The coverup how many great corporations are involved with Sheriff Activities League. The money is stolen from the kids, how many prominent leaders in SMC knew for 5 months about the embezzlement and kept their mouths shout.

That is a Great Lesson to teach our children of San Mateo County.

October 18, 2019 Article about Chinedu Okobi Homicide by six San Mateo County Sheriff Employees. In response to questions about Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos issuing 3 News Releases 2 on October 3, 2018 and 1 on March 1, 2019 all containing False statements.

Supervisor Don Horsley said that he thinks that the sheriff’s office has been transparent through the investigation and was unconcerned that it took five months for the inaccurate information to be corrected.

“I think it was good of them to correct the statement,” he said.

The reality is Don Horsley was ok with the lies for 5 months and then He lied about them being corrected. Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos NEVER corrected the False statements he just Deleted it.

Her name was Sandra Lee Harmon. It could have been Errol, Yanira, Chinedu and many others.

By Michael G. Stogner

Sandra Lee Harmon



San Mateo County Supervisors do your job, Supervise.
Release the Videos Today.

It’s been 5 days since Sandra Lee Harmon was killed. The names of the Deputies involved have not been released, the Videos, Audios, 911 call transcripts, name of Hospital, who provided life saving measures and for how long. What type of Shot gun, single barrel? Double barrel? How did it get on the ground? Did she comply with the orders to Put the gun down? Did she fire first? the video and audio would solve that question?

There is a slight possibility that the Sheriff’s Office story is true but the past behavior in Homicide by Law Enforcement (Okobi) is the example the residents of San Mateo County should Not believe anything Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos says or provides in a News Release.

The only fact that we know is that she was killed by San Mateo County Sheriff Deputies in the back parking lot of 845 Main Street, Half Moon Bay, California early evening on May 5, 2020.

San Mateo County Sheriff Office issued a tweet “Upon arrival, Deputies gave her multiple verbal commands to drop her weapon. She did not comply and fired her shotgun at Deputies. Deputies returned fire, striking the woman.  Following lifesaving efforts on-scene, she was transported to the hospital and succumbed to her injuries.”

If that sounds familiar it should, Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos Press Releases. Always make the deceased look guilty.

October 3, 2018 the Sheriff Office News Release issued just hours after the Chinedu Okobi Homicide by SIX San Mateo County Sheriff Employees.

“The deputy exited his vehicle to contact the suspect and the suspect immediately assaulted the deputy.” ” The suspect was also transported to the hospital where it was later learned that he died. Both of these are completely False statements remained on SMC website for 5 months.

October 3, 2018 Sheriff’s Office issued a second News Release where they Omitted the sixth SMC Employee CSO Joseph Gonzales.

Sheriff’s deputy Mehn Trieu arrived at the scene alone and fired a single shot within 20 seconds of exiting his vehicle. After he met with his attorneys he made this statement. Seeing “Yanira SerranoGarcia put the fear of God in him.

Errol Chang was killed by Daly City Swat Team called by Pacifica Police. They got tried of waiting, ordered into the tiny house.

San Mateo County residents you have 5 elected people who are responsible for this result reoccurring. They are the Supervisors.

Her family is requesting financial help at this time Bringing Sandie Home.
