Costa Mesa, California is a diverse bustling city featuring a high-end shopping mall, the Orange County Fair Grounds, Orange Coast College, an active restaurant, and nightlife scene. The city is nestled in between two other bustling beach cities Newport Beach and Huntington Beach, one is internationally renowned for its surfing and the other for it high-end homes and shopping.
With the three cities a short distance apart and meeting in a triangle formation adds to the amount of traffic that flows in and out of Costa Mesa. CA. With all that traffic coming in and out of a city it is inevitable that there is going to be crime and arrests. The arrested may be granted bail which if they chose can lead to them being released from the Costa Mesa Police Department or any Orange County Jail with the help of a bail bonds company.
Being the premiere bail bonds company in Costa Mesa we see our share of accused crimes and there are three crimes specifically that come through our office more regularly than any other. The 3 crimes most common for bail bonds in Costa Mesa are:
1) PENAL CODE SECTION 13700-13702 or Penal Code 243(e)(1) PC better known to the general population as Domestic Violence. The one I think is a shocker for most people but it takes the cake. Domestic Violence is the top crime we see at our local CM office. The numbers are teetering on the fence when it comes to the accused being even between males and females.
2) VEHICLE CODE SECTION 23152-23229.1 better known to us as a DUI or Driving under the influence comes in second place. This one might not have been hard to guess with three cities so close together, bustling nightlife scenes and one main 55 Costa Mesa freeway in to get in and out. If you have ever endeavored into the nightlife scene in the area you have witnessed the checkpoints especially leading into the 55 freeway where visiting traffic from the three cities funnels out to exit.
3) PENAL CODE SECTION 240-248 takes the third spot better known as assault or assault and battery. This one might be another shocker to local residents with such a peaceful vibe flowing through the neighborhoods you might not think there are many assault crimes going on in the city but there are.
