ARCADIA — Arcadia’s top police and fire officials were “jailed” Tuesday in an event to raise money for the Muscular Dystrophy Association.
Arcadia Police Chief Bob Sanderson and Arcadia Fire Chief Tony Trabbie joined a handful of other volunteers and were held captive at B.J.’s Restaurant and Brewhouse Tuesday afternoon until friends, family and coworkers could raise sufficient “bail” for the MDA.
Chief Sanderson’s release fetched $2,600 for the charity, while Chief Trabbie raised a ransom of $2,690, Arcadia police Sgt. Tom Le Veque said.
Being an inmate of the MDA wasn’t all bad, Le Veque explained, as B.J.’s provided lunch to all the prisoners.
