People v. Lucero (Cal. Ct. App. - April 19, 2016)

From this afternoon's opinion:

"Ahmed Silmi frequently kept cash deposits from his businesses in the trunk of his Mercedes. . . ."

That doesn't seem wise.  Doesn't seem wise at all.

". . . . Approximately thirty minutes later, Lucero, whom Silmi had known for a few weeks, arrived at the barbershop. The three men smoked methamphetamine together. . . ."

I can already tell:  This is not going to end well.

"Silmi had $18,228 in cash and 44 cellular phones in the Mercedes. . . .  Lucero pointed a gun at Silveira and told him to open the trunk of the car. When Silveira attempted to drive away, Lucero shot him several times. . . . Authorities found Silveira in the driver's seat of the vehicle that had crashed into the house. Silveira suffered a total of six gunshot wounds, all to his upper body and head. Silveira died from the gunshots."

Yep.  Did not end well.  For anyone.
