Ex-Covina Police Worker Guilty Of Stealing $342,000

COVINA (AP) — A former records supervisor with the Covina Police Department has pleaded guilty to stealing $342,000 and hiding a drunken-driving report that involved her son-in-law.

Los Angeles County prosecutors say Louise Vance-Wasilchin entered pleas Friday to misappropriating public funds and secreting a public record.

The 58-year-old Upland woman could face more than 2½ years in prison when she’s sentenced in February.

Police say their civilian employee stole money that came from parking meters, parking fines and impound fees. Police began investigating in April after they noticed a bag full of quarters in her car during an accident probe.

Prosecutors say she also hid a police report on a hit-and-run and driving-under-the-influence case involving her son-in-law.

        When you learn that other people are also free to have their say, you can then call yourself American.

      2. Greg says:

        He’s a troll. He’s not really Mexican or even Hispanic. He’s trying to make them sound stupid and he’s trying WAY too hard. Look at his other posts.

        This story isn’t even about a Hispanic Suspect. They don’t even mention a single Spanish name.

    3. Michael J. McDermott says:

      My apologies. This web page switched my response around. I though I was replying to someone further down the list.
      But I must admit I have to say this… NO WAY JOSE ! ! Jose, you’re really lost on that one.
      Uh, sorry about that.

      wg/af is at his most rowdy when jockeying for position on a large ass. Like other marsupials, when wg/af is well fed, his tail swells with stored fat.

    Boy, my mother in law would never do that for me.

    wg//af was never about free speech. wg//af failed to even come up with an actual platform. wg//af was claiming to represent the occupy mob but who knows. It was mostly who could talk the loudest.
    There are lots and lots of venues that wg//af could have exercised his free speech rights and actually accomplished something. All the wg//af did was waste everyone’s time and tax dollar. Shame on the politicians in LA for not breaking this up in a timely manner. You want to protest? Fine, fill out the paperwork for your permit; hold your demonstration and then go home.

    Internal financial control of Covina Police Department is very poor, without car accident, she could continue stealing the taxpayers’ money.

  7. CALIFORNIA THE GOLDEN STATE OR BROWN STATE?? says:

    So only 2 1/2 years in prison for stealing $342,000 & hiding a DUI Police report?

    2 1/2 years is nothing for that amount of $$$ & hiding police records of her Son-in-law..

    Just a slap on the wrist, and i’m wiling to bet she’ll get much less time than that..

    CALIFORNIA IS NOW THE BROWN STATE..

      Hey IMPOTENT IMBECILE, we all know it’s you hijacking screen names to say something stupid since you started using one of my screen names “up//yours.” Your limp d!ck fell off when I called you out to show your puS$y ass at a Kelly Thomas rally, chikensh!t no-show dumbf**k.
      So show your puS$y ass by where they had the Kelly Thomas rally. There is a sculpture that looks like a big check mark in front be there at 1:00p 12/24, if your $lut mama can sew your limp d!ck back
