Posted by Fay Arfa | Jan 30, 2022 | 0 Comments

             The feds arrested Richard Royden Chamberlin, 53, who allegedly fired BB guns at the Planned Parenthood facility in Pasadena several times. The feds charged him with being an ex-felon with the illegal possession of a .22-caliber handgun. Chamberlin allegedly shot at Planned Parent facilities several times in 2020 and 2021 as he drove by in his car. Videos showed Chamberlin's Chevrolet Malibu driving by with its window down when the shots were fired. Planned Parenthood suspected Chamberlin used a BB gun .

    On  March 30, 2021, a patient's support companion was nearly hit as she waited on the front porch” of the Planned Parenthood facility.  After another reported BB gun shooting on May 7, 2021, the Pasadena Police Department found Chamberlin in his Malibu near the Planned Parenthood facility. Investigators found in Chamberlin's vehicle multiple BB guns, and a Phoenix Arms .22-caliber handgun loaded with 10 bullets in a backpack on the front passenger seat. 

A criminal complaint contains allegations that a defendant has committed a crime. Every defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.

            If convicted of being a felon in possession of a firearm, Chamberlin would face a statutory maximum sentence of 10 years in federal prison.
