Husband struck by car while walking with wife in grave condition

On Wednesday, Feb 13, at 7:14 p.m., LBPD officers responded to a vehicle versus pedestrian traffic collision on S Coast Hwy at Mountain Road. According to reports, a husband and wife were crossing S Coast Hwy from the inland side to the ocean side. They had crossed the northbound lanes and the number one southbound lane. A southbound vehicle in the number one southbound lane had stopped as the couple entered that lane. 

“As the male crossed into the number two southbound lane, he was struck by a southbound vehicle who had failed to stop,” LBPD Spokesperson PIO Sgt Jim Cota said. “The injuries to the male were severe and he was transported to Mission Hospital, Mission Viejo. Alcohol was not a factor. The traffic investigation is ongoing.”

Duo busted for meth and heroin, male brings drug contraband into jail

On Monday, Feb 1, at 12:50 a.m., an officer conducted a traffic stop at S Coast Hwy and Jasmine Street. An investigation was conducted and a background check revealed Oceanside resident Beau Aguirre had an outstanding no bail warrant from San Diego. Officer Kraus also located heroin inside of his vehicle. 

“Aguirre was on probation and a probation hold was placed on him,” Sgt Cota said. “The female passenger, Natalie Gholomhossani, was also arrested for possession of methamphetamine and heroin.” 

They were both transported to LBPD for booking. In the jail, Aguirre was seen by Jailer Salgado attempting to put some type of contraband in his private parts.

“A strip search was conducted and a bindle of drugs was seen. Aguirre refused to remove the bindle. Aguirre was placed in the holding cell while being prepared to be transported to MHLB,” Sgt Cota said. “Prior to his transport, Aguirre can be seen on the jail cameras extracting the bindle of drugs, ripping the plastic bag, and then shoving it into the drain of the holding cell that contained water destroying it.” 

Aguirre was medically cleared and taken to OCJ. Gholomhossani was booked and released with a court date.

Natalie Gholomhossani, 20, of Laguna Niguel, was arrested for being in possession of a controlled substance without a prescription and a narcotic controlled substance. Bail was set at $1,000.

Beau Campbell Aguirre, 23, Oceanside, was arrested for being in possession of controlled substance paraphernalia, a narcotic controlled substance, bringing a controlled substance into jail, and violating probation. No bail was set.
