    A banjo Bob learn the law. When you receive a California P.O.S.T. certificate and are employed by any agency in California you have law enforcement powers ANY WHERE in the state of California. Stop being a typical know-nothing idiot.

      I'm pretty sure now that this is just an errant statement by FoxNews, and the guy was actually arrested by SDPD, but even if LMPD has law enforcement authority wherever they want, the taxpayers of La Mesa are more than willing to let SDPD patrol its own turf. It's not like every law enforcement officer from San Ysidro to Poway to El Cajon wasn't looking for the guy.
      It's not like local high schools teach was P.O.S.T is or should be. Local government education is sadly lacking, if not non-existent, in this community. Banjo Bob's misstatement is more a reflection on our tolerance for poor education rather than his own deliberate ignorance.
