Miles Clifford Farmer, 32, of Prunedale and Amanda Miyo Farmer, 29, of Pacific Grove were sitting in two cars behind the Motel 6 at 100 Reservation Road in Marina around 9 a.m. when officers ran one of the license plates and discovered that Miles Farmer was a parolee-at-large. Lt. Bob Nolan said officers also learned that Farmer had a previous conviction for operating a meth lab.
When the vehicles were searched, officers discovered a black satchel in one containing items that looked like a portable methamphetamine lab.

What started as a weekend getaway at a Pacific Grove bed and breakfast turned bad for a Dublin couple Sunday.
The couple were staying at a bed and breakfast on the 200 block of Ocean View when Darren Errol Lawson, 28 allegedly assaulted his girlfriend about midnight Sunday. Police said Lawson left the room after the first attack and his girlfriend, a 31-year-old also from Dublin, locked the door and tried to call police.
Maybe the scones were stale that day . .
Two Pacific Grove women were arrested Wednesday morning on suspicion of trespassing at a property owned by an aunt of one of the women.
Rindi Rehs, 33, was cited and released, and the owner’s niece, Cynthia Hurley, 47, was also found to be in possession of drugs, police said. Hurley was charged and released on bail.
“Right in the middle of all this wealth and affluence is West Virginia,” Chief Carl Miller said. “We were getting calls.”
Bad analogy, chief.
Marina police arrested two more men this week in connection with pornographic pictures of two Monterey County girls.

Complaints have flowed in to Ammar’s office from residents who said the ad was tasteless and inappropriate for something promoting what is billed as a family event in, of all places, America’s Last Hometown.
The chamber’s mailer, which was sent to 12,000 Peninsula residents, features an advertisement depicting a couple lying in bed together, and a caption reads, “Ladies, are you feeling shy about taking it off for your husbands? Feel comfortable again about getting naked!”
“There was nothing about it that jumped out at me at first,” said Ammar. “Then the phone calls came in and I read it more closely. You would hope the ads would be more traditional.”
For the record, another ad inside the mailer depicts the backside of a naked woman sitting on a skateboard, with the upper half of her “backside” exposed.
That’s one sad looking fat lady. You don’t see starving orphans in food ads or smelly drunks in beer ads, why do they use a sad fat person in a diet ad?
The Pacific Grove City Council voted 7-0 Wednesday night to increase speed limits from 25 to 30 mph along nine stretches of city streets.
According to state law, speed limits are set slightly below the 85th percentile of a recent three-month survey conducted on city streets. The speed limit increase is the only legal way the police department can enforce radar.
Woohoo! Rev it up. The streets are:
- Central from Eardley to Fourth
- David from Devisadero to Congress (my favorite – look out LOLs exiting CC Gate)
- Forest from Holman Highway to Hillcrest
- Jewell Pacific to Lighthouse
- Lighthouse from Asilomar to 17 Mile Drive
- Patterson from Funston to David
- Pine from Eardley Avenue to Alder
- 17 Mile Drive from Sinex to Lighthouse
- Sinex from Congress to 17 Mile Drive
Before Wednesday’s meeting, City Manager Jim Colangelo said Pacific Grove was in a win-win situation because it couldn’t lose money.
“The concessionaire is not interested in extending the lease, and we are looking at this as an opportunity for the city to pick up additional revenue,” he said.
“This is an opportunity for the city to be able to look at how we can improve our service to the public and to the citizens of Pacific Grove,” said Leach.
Under the new management structure, the position of superintendent will also include the title director of golf. The city will hire eight maintenance workers and four part-time workers.
The proposal left Schenk skeptical.
If you already have the overhead in place to hire/train/pay an employee base, why not?
