BREAKING NEWS:  COTO IS SAFER THAN OTHER COMMUNITIES: OCR's CANYONLIFE 04-21-06

 

April 21, 2006  

 

BREAKING NEWS:  COTO IS SAFER THAN OTHER COMMUNITIES:

The April 21 issue of the CanyonLife reports that  Fred Lisanti of Pacific Oak Security, security consultants to the ( Coto de Caza)  board, presented a report indicating the official crime rate in Coto de Caza is low when compared to other communities of its size.

 

This after CNN/Money in 2004 reported that according to FBI and other agencies, the Coto de Caza crime rate was higher/per capita than any other neighboring gated or un-gated community.  Even so, CNN/Money had Coto de Caza in their list of the Best Places to live, alongside Rancho Santa Margarita.  As of  2005 CNN/Money dropped Coto de Caza altogether.

 

The CanyonLife then goes on to “report” that “Lisanti said one of the reasons for the low rate was that people within the community usually call Coto’s security department rather than the sheriff’s department, even when security advised residents to call the sheriff.” – As Cotobuzz had predicted, the only practical use for a “security consultant” is to manipulate the local media! – By the way, Coto residents, who was responsible for the recent Transponder Debacle?  Exactly!

LOS ANGELES -- A part-time business lecturer at the University of Southern California was arrested Friday for allegedly running a Ponzi scheme that authorities say bilked at least $1.5 million from real estate investors, some of them students who took his class.

Barry Landreth, 36, was taken into custody at his home in the gated community of Coto de Caza in Orange County. He was jailed Friday in lieu of $500,000 bond, said FBI spokeswoman Laura Eimiller. A preliminary hearing was set for April 7.

FBI agents also seized assets Landreth allegedly acquired with his victims' funds, including a luxury car and several show horses
