I Hereby Declare May 14… Laurie Holmes Day!


Just kidding.

This is the earliest arrest that I could find where John Holmes was busted for making an obscene movie during the 70’s. I can only assume that he turned informant after this, and not a very good one at that. Few if any vice arrests were ever made from info that was provided by detective Johnny Wadd to the cops.

I am not sure if this is related to the above case, but an interesting news article nonetheless! Both incidents occurred in Thousand Oaks. Also included in this crime beat are some other bizarre crimes from the L.A. area:
