California Man Arrested Three Times in One Day, Released Due to COVID-19

Last week, a California man was taken into custody three times within a 12 hour period and was released each time over concerns of the spread of Coronavirus.

24-year-old Dijon Landrum was first arrested trying to break into a car and attempted to flee from police in a stolen vehicle. After being apprehended and charged with driving a stolen vehicle and possession of narcotics, Landrum was released within an hour. Soon after, he was arrested again for stealing after a call was placed about a man taking items from residents’ front yards and putting them in the box he was carrying. 

Landrum was arrested a third time after stealing another car in Pasadena but not before leading police on a high-speed chase, where he was apprehended again. He was charged with possession of a stolen vehicle and for evading officers.
