Hovland - mail theft update

Formatted HTML message

Carl “Mike” Hovland, (male 31 years old) from Rolling Hills was arrested on November 14 2012, by Lomita Station Detectives. Hovland was suspected of stealing mail from numerous homes in the city of Rolling Hills while living at 77 Eastfield Drive, Rolling Hills.  He then used the information obtained from the stolen mail to commit Identity Theft(s).  Hovland was charged with burglary, grand theft, and theft by access cards.

Hovland posted bail shortly after the arrest and remained free on bond until December 21, 2012, when he was arrested by Torrance Police Department for petty theft, shoplifting.  He was released on his own recognizance the day after this arrest.

On January 7, 2013, while out on bail for the prior arrests, Hovland was again arrested by Redondo Beach Police Department with his girlfriend, Taylor Marciano, for identity theft and possession of narcotics.  Hovland remained in custody following this arrest.

On February 21, 2013, Mike Hovland plead “no contest” to grand theft in the Lomita Station case and “no contest” to Identity Theft and possession of narcotics for the Redondo Beach Police Department case.  This plea was heard in South Bay Court.

At the March 6, 2013 sentencing hearing, the Sheriff's Department reports that Hovland was sentenced to the following:

·       5 years prison (Suspended per plea bargain agreement)

·       5 years formal probation with search and seizure conditions

·       5 year keep away order from Rolling Hills

·       365 day sentence, beginning today, in a locked down rehab facility in lieu of county jail.  With 100 days credit for time served, we expect him to spend 265 days at the rehab facility.

In addition, the City has been advised that the Court issued six protective orders, restraining Hovland from contacting or coming within 500 yards of certain specified individuals, all of whom are residents of Rolling Hills. Each of these restraining orders contains a provision prohibiting Hovland from entering the gated community of Rolling Hills. Hovland's violation of this provision constitutes a separate violation of law, as well as a violation of his probation.
