DA Raid Snags Bell City Manager and Cerritos Resident Paul Philips

 

STAFF REPORT • August 15, 2020

The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office raided homes and offices this week as part of a corruption probe into a failed solar project in the City of Industry.

The bill to taxpayers was $20 million and nothing came of it.

One search warrant was served on Paul Philips, Cerritos resident and current Bell City Manager.

Neighbor Jim McMahon emailed HMG saying, “This morning, around 7 am. Mr.  Phillips, my neighbor,  was arrested by LA Police Department/ DA Office and taken away in his underwear.  The DA’s office is going through the house right now. The neighborhood currently is full of undercover cars from the District Attorney’s office.”
