Victorville man was arrested for possession of stolen pool
equipment. Detectives are seeking possible victims.
On Tuesay, April 8, 2014 at approximately 12:00 A.M., Victorville City Sheriff's Station Detectives conducted follow up investigation regarding pool equipment thefts in the High Desert. The detectives found a Craigslist ad listing a pool equipment item for sale that looked similar to an item stolen from a house in Victorville. The detectives contacted the seller and arranged to buy the listed pool equipment item. The seller, Mauricio Rosales, who identified himself as Mario, arrived at the arranged meeting location with a pool equipment item. This pool equipment item was not the stolen item detectives were looking for, but was a pool equipment item that appeared stolen. The detectives then served a search warrant at Rosales' residence on Old Ranch Road and found approximately $30,000 worth of apparently stolen pool equipment items. Through further investigation, the stolen pool equipment item the detectives were looking for was found to be sold by Rosales and installed in a residence in San Dimas. Rosales was arrested for possession of stolen property and booked into the High Desert Detention Center.
The large pool equipment items (pool heaters, pool filters and pool pumps) taken from Rosales' house have not yet been identified as related to specific thefts. People who have had thefts of large pool equipment items within the last 6 months are encouraged to contact the Victorville City Sheriff's Station to attempt to identify their missing pool equipment item(s).

(NAPS)-We’ve all heard about the increase in bullying among children, but workplace bullying among adults is also a growing problem. According to recent reports, 35 to 50 percent of U.S. employees say they were bullied in the course of their career.
At companies across America, employers and workers are discovering a problem that’s bad for morale, bad for their own health and happiness, and bad for the bottom line: workplace bullying.
What can you do if you’re bullied at work? Dr. Colleen Logan, Walden University’s program director for the M.S. in Career Counseling program, and an expert in bullying issues, offers some advice:
•Know the signs. Workplace bullying can include verbal abuse, threats, gossip, the silent treatment, offensive conduct, humiliation, intimidation, and work interference or sabotage.
•Be honest with yourself. It’s easy to discount or ignore bullying, thinking you might be reading the situation wrongly, but if you think you’re being bullied, you likely are.
•Set boundaries. Tell yourself you do not have to stand for this behavior and will not be victimized. Remain in charge of your values, decisions, behavior and conduct.
•Get ready to confront the bully. Mentally prepare to send a clear and consistent message that the bullying needs to stop.
•Make a formal complaint. Talk to your boss. Provide specific details about the bullying and how it affects you and your work. If your boss is the bully, talk to a human resources representative.
•Seek alternative employment. If your workplace doesn’t change, take steps to find a nonhostile work environment where colleagues listen to one another’s viewpoint with respect, agree to disagree and move forward.
“Bullying in the workplace is fundamentally wrong. It can cause physical, mental and emotional harm as well as long-term career problems,” says Dr. Logan. “Although no one wants to admit to being the bully or to being bullied, everyone has the right to work in a healthy, nonhostile work environment.”

Overcoming Workplace Bullying
Bullying at work occurs for many of the same reasons it occurs in today’s schools: to gain power and to overcome feelings of inferiority, fear or jealousy.
