Drug suspect back in custody

-A A +A

 Steven Porter, a 46-year-old White Rock man who is facing 20 charges involving controlled substances — 13 felonies and seven misdemeanors — is back in jail after violating terms of his release, according to LAPD commander Jason Wardlow-Herrera Tuesday.

Wardlow-Herrera said Porter tampered with his electronic monitoring device. Porter made his first court appearance before Magistrate Judge Pat Casados Tuesday and was given a strict set or orders for his release.

Bond was posted last Tuesday and Porter was released last Wednesday. His next court appearance is scheduled for Sept. 2.

Police seized the drugs in Porter’s home after obtaining a search warrant to look for evidence to connect Porter to a rash of damage to property incidents. Police then amended the search warrant to seize the controlled substances after they were found on Porter’s property.
