A. Massey, a well known fixture of the Venice boardwalk, was arrested last week for stealing a surfboard and other property out of a garage near the Westminster dog park on December 11th.

Massey in happier times.

Massey made multiple trips into the garage at around 8:30 pm., allegedly selling the stolen goods at a highly discounted rate to "others" nearby. The owners of the home have some high quality security cameras, so Massey will likely not be seen around Venice for a little while.

Massey sees the surfboards, ignores the security camera.

It is believed that Massey had existing warrants at the time of his arrest.

Just another beloved Venetian keeping Venice "funky".

Irony, it's what's for breakfast.

The stolen board was a 7' 6" EBERLY tri-fin.  Clear glass with "EBERLY" written on the nose in large black script lettering.  Black glassed-on fins.  It was an older style board – new in early 90's, but in very good condition.

He just moved to the top of Lucks list to get a locker. He will need an extra large size for all his stuff till he gets out of jail.

The litter problem in Venice just got a microscopically better, I once watched him walking down my street tearing the paper away from his sandwich and letting it drop in the street as he walked along.

Sounds like he qualifies to be on one of Lucks VNC task force comities to make Venice cleaner and a safe place to live.

Is this the guy who also goes by "Gucci"? If so then glad to have him out of public. Some friends and I walked around him one day when he was "singing" and "dancing" and when we didn't want to give him a dollar he threatened us. One less person out there trying to shank you for simply enjoying public space.

The sad part about this this guy, more than likely will be let out of jail very soon. You better get you dollar ready because he will be back to get it.

i've seen him for over 15 years, doing the same thing…

and always asking. "you gotta roach?"

he once turned a carport into campsite on my block, it was quite elaborate

and he was very defiant when asked to leave
