Be careful when you Google yourself, Bay Area authorities are warning.
In the case of Christopher Viatafa, who Googled himself and found his photo on Northern Californias Most Wanted website, he turned himself in to police.
Viatafa who has a pretty unique last name was wanted by the San Leandro Police Department for his involvement in a shooting.
On August 8, 2013, Vaitafa attended a private party at the San Leandro Senior Center located at 13909 East 14th Street. Police said he started arguing with some people at the party, pulled out a semi-automatic handgun and fired a few rounds into the ground.
Vaitafa was forced out of the area and he proceeded to fire several more rounds, police said.
Investigators were looking for Viatafa for discharging a firearm toward an inhabited dwelling.
According to the San Leandro Police Department detective that interviewed Viatafa, Viatafa turned himself in after seeing his photo on the Most Wanted site, which is managed by the Northern California Intelligence Center.
On Friday, Viatafa was listed as a captured fugitive on the Most Wanted website.
sounds like a typical mexican family birthday party to me.
Was there a reward?
He shot dirt! That’s worth a listing as “Most Wanted?” Must be a very quiet, crime-free community!
Heck, any drunk redneck could easily equal that.
Wimpy world this is becoming, Pachy.
That's what it takes to get you onto their "most wanted" list? What happens if you steal something or kill somebody, you get the list named in your honor?
At least he obeyed the rule, never shoot water.
“Wimpy world this is becoming, Pachy.”
Sure is! I mean,,,, he didn’t shoot anyone. He didn’t shoot at anyone. He was pissed off, and shot dirt! Did he break the law? Certainly! But freakin’ “Most Wanted?” Sheesh!
It’s because of these stupid modern “gun anything” felonies that he gets such an “honor.” In olden days this would be what, disorderly conduct?
does he get the reward
High school kids who have pocket knives in their cars on a school parking lot; are higher on the most wanted list than this guy.
does he get the reward
= = = = = = = = = = = =
‘They’ probably suggested he would.
But..isn’t reward usually based on Arrest AND Conviction?
In a ‘sane’ society, once convicted they should be able to claim NO REWARD because you are not supposed to profit by your crimes...hence you are a convicted person and ineligible to receive the reward.
BUT his ‘hack lawyer’ will take the case, end up with 70% of it and the remaining 30% to his ‘relatives’ or whoever and he will get 20 bucks put into his prison fund.
The lawyer will get charged with fraud and the conviction overturned
“In olden days this would be what, disorderly conduct?”
Or discharging a firearm within city limits. But “Most Wanted?” That’s pathetic!
