Pasadena Police Officials announced this week that they have made their first arrest using new automated license plate recognition system (ALPR) technology, a new system which allows Police Officers to scan thousands of plates every shift via cameras mounted on their patrol cars.

According to the Pasadena Police Department, Christopher Castillo, 24, was arrested last Friday night at around 10:00pm when a Police Officer’s in-car computer alerted him with a notice that the car was stolen. Castillo is an active parolee of Pasadena and was subsequently arrested for driving a stolen vehicle.
