Suspect Arrested for Possession of Firearms on School Grounds

Los Angeles: On Dec. 5, 2008, at about 3:40 p.m., Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) West Los Angeles Division detectives arrested 46-year-old Lynford Wiley for possession of a firearm on the grounds of Kenter Canyon Elementary School in the 600 block of North Kenter Avenue in West Los Angeles.

Initially, West Los Angeles Patrol Division officers responded to a call about “a man with a gun on campus” at the school. Upon arrival, officers were directed to a residence adjacent to the campus where they found Wiley and made contact.  The suspect was compliant and also consented to a search of his residence.  Inside, officers found numerous hand guns, rifles and other weapons.

After his arrest, Wiley was booked at LAPD’s Parker Center Jail and initially held without bail. However, he was arraigned a few days later on Dec. 9 in Los Angeles County Superior Court Division 144 (LAX Municipal Courthouse), and the presiding judge set bail at $500,000.  Wiley subsequently posted bail and has been released.  A preliminary hearing has been scheduled for Dec. 23 in Department 142 of the LAX Municipal Courthouse.    

Anyone with information about Wiley or the incident is asked to contact LAPD West Los Angeles Division detectives at (310) 444-1580.  After-hours and on weekends, calls may be directed to a 24-hour, toll-free number at 1-877-LAPD24-7 (527-3247) or by texting CRIMES (274637) and beginning the message with LAPD.  Tipsters may also submit information on the LAPD website, www.lapdonline.org. All calls and tips are anonymous.
