“‘Authorities are investigating why 300 unopened vote-by-mail ballots for the upcoming recall election were found – along with a gun and drugs – in a car parked at a Torrance convenience store,’ reported ABC7.
The arrest occurred at 10:45 p.m. on August 16 at a 7-Eleven parking lot. The man was reportedly sleeping in his car when police were called to the scene. He has since been released from custody on his own recognizance.
‘Inside the vehicle, the officers found a loaded handgun, some narcotics, and then they found a bunch of mail and what turned out to be over 300 election ballots in the backseat of the vehicle,’ said Sgt. Mark Ponegalek of the Torrance Police Department.”
