Founder of an Anti-Drug Program Is Arrested in Redondo Beach Police Drug Sting

Posted By Robert Bernstein || 24-Jul-2009

California, particularly Southern California, is a hot spot for drug importation and trafficking. International and interstate drug import and export leads to an increase in drug crime altogether, thus both State and Federal law enforcement agencies vigorously prosecute drug offenses.

Kendall Craig Farris is a well known anti drug advocate who has created drug treatment programs and written books on the subject has ironically been arrested and charged in a drug case. Farris, the founder and head of the Over the Wall Foundation in Marina del Rey and author of the book "Drugs, Kids and Crime: Surviving Our Drug Obsessed Culture," was arrested at a Starbucks after an undercover Redondo Beach officer was allegedly sold methamphetamine and ecstasy.

According to police reports, Farris arrived at the coffeehouse in a taxi and an undercover officer gave him an envelope containing $480 in exchange for the methamphetamine and ecstasy. Farris was subsequently arrested. The pills turned out to be fake, but Farris was arraigned Friday on charges of selling a substance that he alleged was drugs.

He is being held on $106,500 bail.
