Man arrested on Marine base

chpcarOn Sunday, June 15, 2014, at approximately 2:51 A.M., California Highway Patrol (CHP) Bishop Communications Center received a call for assistance from the United States Marine Corp Mountain Warfare Training Center Police Department (MWTC-PD).  MWTC-PD was requesting assistance at the Lincoln Military Housing complex in Coleville. 

CHP Bridgeport Area officers arrived and were advised by MWTC-PD that Mr. Dustin J. Becker, age 28, of Oakland, California, was being detained for possession of controlled substances. MWTC-PD advised CHP officers that Mr. Becker had driven up to the guard gated entrance of the military housing complex stating he was lost.  When asked to provide identification, Mr. Becker was unable to. 

Mr. Becker was detained by MWTC-PD and a search resulted in the discovery of multiple controlled substances.  Mr. Becker had been driving the vehicle while his driver license was suspended.  CHP officers arrested Mr. Becker for multiple driving and felony drug violations, towed his vehicle from the scene and he was transported and booked in to the Mono County Sheriff’s Department Jail in Bridgeport, California.  Mono County Sheriff’s Department and Mono County Narcotics Enforcement Team assisted CHP personnel.

      So what should we do about it? Give them all citizenship and have them move to your neighborhood?

      • Ken Warner June 22, 2014 at 11:55 am #

        Bob: The discussion is about those who died crossing the border. They are dead. There are some that think dead people should be treated with respect. I’m not one of them. Cremating the unidentified remains makes the most sense to me.

    Our Counties should follow what Carbon County in Utah did… “Accordingly, the Board of Commissioners of Carbon County declares publicly in the interest of the health, safety and welfare of its citizens, that Carbon County does not recognize any attempt by a federal official to try to enforce state or local criminal or civil laws on any lands in Carbon County, including any BLM and Forest Service lands in Carbon County… including federal lands.” 🙂

      Jeff…Isn’t that the same thing involving that Bundy group of misfits your talking about ?……Let them keep that up, and we’ll see how it turns out for them.

  5. Wayne Deja June 19, 2014 at 7:36 am #

    I don’t have a lot of pity for someone arrested for (alleged) possession of drugs or driving without a license….but don’t like the idea of military personal able to detain someone or be searching their vehicle when it’s not on a military base.

    • Trouble June 20, 2014 at 8:27 pm #

      Ya Wayne, but you blow me up for the Mammoth P.D. ecouraging the local teenagers to call 911 at the smell of beer in a drive-thru? Whatever!

      • Wayne Deja June 21, 2014 at 1:15 pm #

        Trouble….A whole different thing there….If this guy wasn’t on the military base,which it seems he might have been after all,and if so,the guards at the station did do the right thing….but,if he wasn’t on the base..military personal have no business or no right to be searching or asking questions….I’ve known of a few 18 year olds in my lifetime in the military,and thinking because of being fresh out of boot-camp makes them some type of “authority figure” with civilians….which it does not….as far as the incident at the fast-food restaurant,the employees did the right thing reporting this(alleged) drunk driver….didn’t he blow something like double over the limit ?…no different than if a bartender sat back and watched an intoxicated person leave the tavern and driving a vehicle…not only morally the right thing to report it to LE,before he kills someone on the highway,but the right thing to do.

        • Trouble June 21, 2014 at 3:53 pm #

          So Wayne, it’s o.k. make teenage kids rat out their neighbors for smelling like a little beer in McDonalds drive thru, but the US Marine Corps need to mind their own business? Whatever!

          • Wayne Deja June 21, 2014 at 8:55 pm #

            Trouble…If I’m not mistaken,the guy in the drive-thru ended up blowing a .23 BAC……more than just a “little beer”,and actually a danger on the highway…and like I stated,IF this drug arrest was indeed ON the base, the guard was well in his bounds to do what he did…but off the base,not so much..the U.S.Marine Corps don’t have the authority, off-base, to detain,search and arrest private citizens.

          • Trouble June 22, 2014 at 6:52 am #

            The bottom line is our country seems to think it’s o.k. to trample all over our personal freedoms and civil rights in the name of public safety. Neither of these guys had hurt anybody or anything , yet you seem to think they deserve to be locked up. By the way, 99% of the people locked up for these crimes are out of jail in less than 24 hours. Feel safer now?

          • Wayne Deja June 22, 2014 at 2:37 pm #

            Trouble….I guess your right…..the right to drink and drive…It’s a personal freedom and a civil right to do so….with no consequences for doing it….. untill you happen to kill an innocent family.

          • Trouble June 22, 2014 at 5:30 pm #

            Wayne, I know our country was a lot better offf when the cops werea lot more tolerant and our prisons werent boiling over. remember when you didn’t go to jail on a maybe? those were the days!

    If the kid and his lawyer are smart they will throw around 4th amendment rights violation. Was he going onto the housing complex to visit someone, or was he just simply asking for directions? What was the probable cause for the search? Was he actually across the property line of the base’s property or still on state land? Do the military police have jusrisdiction over non-goverment property or roads ? All good questions his lawyer should be asking once this goes to court. Just saying.

    • Pedro June 18, 2014 at 6:05 pm #

      He probably consented to search. Most people do, or don’t give a clear refusal to permit search. Lawyer can’t usually do much if you didn’t invoke your rights from beginning.

  7. BDGP June 17, 2014 at 2:35 pm #

    ID is not required to ask directions, only to enter the installation or the housing complex and is up to the installation commander. Another 4 amendment rights violation!

    Hopefully this will shed light on the Marine Base checking ID’s of the public going up Silver Creek Road (Public Access Road to Public Lands) that divides the Marine Base essentially in half. They have no jurisdiction on Silver Creek Road! They have no right to illegally detain someone.

    Hopefully this guy has a good lawyer and sues the pants off the base and local law enforcement for this arrest.

    I don’t condone breaking the law by driving on a suspended license, carrying drugs or anything else felonious and I don’t condone LE or the Marine Base Police/Security violating someone’s rights.

    • Tom O June 19, 2014 at 10:27 am #

      There used to be another way to get to Silver Creek Road from the north…but post 9-11 they blocked that access for security concerns…

      • Bob June 19, 2014 at 12:19 pm #

        A lot of money has been spent post 9/11 to secure military basis.. but hardly a thing has been done to secure our boarders. There’s something wrong with this picture.

        • Trouble June 20, 2014 at 5:33 am #

          Bob, I think you forget about that giant Mexican wall our fear mongering friends shamefully built since 9/11.

          • Bob June 20, 2014 at 10:11 am #

            The wall was recently deemed “racist” by a judge and will not be completed.

          • Ken Warner June 20, 2014 at 12:18 pm #

            Bob: No, the border fence was not deemed racist. Even FoxNEWS didn’t call it racist. Of course Mexico thinks it is.

            And if you think that illegal immigration of Hispanics is bad — wait until the illegal immigration from Mid-East countries gets going full blast.


            A Homeland Security initiative to put fencing along the U.S.-Mexico border could discriminate against minorities, according to an Obama-appointed federal judge who’s ruled that the congressionally-approved project may have a “disparate impact on lower-income minority communities. [and land owners]”

            Last summer Mexican officials expressed public outrage over U.S. efforts to secure the southern border, calling it a human rights violation and an “unfriendly act.” The fact is, a number of government reports have confirmed that it’s not just Mexicans crossing into the U.S. seeking a better life. In 2010 DHS warned Texas law enforcement agencies that a renowned Al Qaeda terrorist was planning to sneak into the U.S. through Mexico. That same year a veteran federal agent accused the government of covering up the growing threat created by Middle Eastern terrorists entering the country through the vulnerable Mexican border.

            Violent crime in the region has been well documented with heavily armed Mexican drug cartels taking over chunks of land that serve as routes to move cargo north. In fact, a few years ago a State Department report exposed a “dramatic increase in violence” along the Mexican border and warned of “violent attacks and persistent security concerns” in the area. The document also lists tens of thousands of narcotics-related murders attributed to sophisticated and heavily armed drug cartels competing with each other for trafficking routes into the U.S.

    Since when does the MILITARY have the right to search private vehicles ? Maybe if he had got past the gate, OK, but it doesn’t sound like he did.

    • Tom O June 19, 2014 at 10:25 am #

      When you turn onto the drive way to the gate you are on the base…there is a sign that says ‘all vehicles are subject to search and ID required’. What part of that do’t you get? Imagine if this moron had a carload of guns/ammo/or a bomb and was allowed to go in w/out being questioned. . Once again…there are drug problems on military bases. Perhaps the guard was put on alert for this ‘lost’ person. The guard was doing his job.
      Up in Walker at the Marine housing, the public is invited to shop at the commissary..guess what-, you have to show ID to get in. The housing complex is considered a military installation.

      You should’ve seen what the place looked like on 9-11. If you did, you would’ve really been complaining. SO please stop w/ the ACLUisms….A Marine base post 9-11 has the right to search anyone who ‘stumbles’ upon their bases. That’s the way it is now. get over it.

      • Bob June 19, 2014 at 12:17 pm #

        ^^ as it should be. Our boarders should be policed the exact same way.

        • Pedro June 19, 2014 at 10:34 pm #

          Remind me to not rent a room from you.

  9. Tom Ot June 16, 2014 at 6:20 pm #

    When you go to ANY guard shack at ANY US military base[post 9-11], the first thing they ask for is ID..That is what the guards are instructed to do. If you cant produce one, you are now under suspicion. The numb nut should’ve called auto club or CHP if he was really ‘lost’……btw, there are drug problems on military bases.

    • sugar magnolia June 19, 2014 at 9:13 am #

      just sayin, that doesn’t sound to0 constitutional. ID to enter the base, got it….ID just because, no go.

  10. sugarmagnolia June 16, 2014 at 8:53 am #

    wow, I didn’t know that ID was required to ask for assistance from a guard station…..
