Downtown Needles, CA: San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department Deputy stops parked car.

ZachNews Photojournalist Zachary A. Lopez was helping friend Debbie at the Cubs Liquor Store located on the 600 block of West Broadway in Downtown Needles, California.

Debbie brought food for me and were walking across the street to her parked car to go home.

Debbie began to turn her car on and I going to drive me home with the food she brought over. As the car was warming up, a San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department vehicle was driving westbound on West Broadway passes Debbie’s car and the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department makes a u-turn near the intersection of West Broadway and D Street and put their spot lights onto the car. The San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department walked up to the  still parked vehicle and said to Debbie why “I pulled – I mean stopped you” he said. “Your parking lights were on” and asked to see identification.

As this was going on, the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department Deputy notice the person in the front passenger seat was from ZachNews. He didn’t say much, but I did ask about the break in which the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department Deputy said, ” Yes, were still looking for him”.

The San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department said we can go and as the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department Deputy was walking back to the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department vehicle, another San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department vehicle drove up and shortly later, both drove off into the night.
