During the whole work week we were not noticibly bothered by our followers. Then on Saturday the following and harassment started again and continued through Sunday.
It was basically the same pattern. Whenever my wife and I left the trailer park where we lived, either the van, license #JND 501 or the Cadillac, license #082 XQV, would be parked somewhere just outside the trailer park and would tail us closely.
In that we were not pursued in this manner during the week, I can only conclude that this activity is designed only to harass us, to ruin our weekends.
At one point my wife and I went car shopping, stopping at some new car dealers in Costa Mesa. The Cadillac, with Cad driving was always there. This was especially upsetting because I realized that all this information was going into Scientology intelligence files and these guys would certainly move to ruin any deal we got involved in, or would take steps to ruin our lives in some way. Even the possibility of having a new car was doomed by this organization.
At one point, the Cadillac was stopped by a Costa Mesa police car for a driving infraction. This was on Ford Street just off Harbor Blvd. My wife and I were being driven around in a demo by a car salesman from a nearby Toyota dealer and saw the incident. I got out of the demo car and went over to where the officer, I believe his name was Baeckel, was talking to Cad. I told this officer that Cad was following and harassing me and that that was why he had pulled the violation. Officer Baeckel told me that Cad had said, by way of an excuse for his violation (I believe it was an illegal U-turn) that he was a private investigator following someone who had stolen some documents.
I then explained to this officer that that was untrue, that such a charge had not even been brought against me, and that even if it were I was certainly innocent until proven guilty, and that I considered that statement to the authorities slander. I also explained to him that this same man had been looking into my house, and had been following and harassing me for weeks. Later that day a neighbour, a young man named Michael, approached me and gave me a list of 3 cars which he had seen come on the property and had been involved with the following incidents that day. He mentioned that these cars were speeding around the property and were upsetting people in the trailer park:
Beige Ford pickup
Cal license # 2A64702
driver – male blond hair mid 20’s
Maroonish brown Cadillac
Cal license # 082 XQV
driver – male curly brown hair mid 30’s
Reddish orange van
Florida license # JND 501
That evening after being out getting groceries I pulled into the trailer park and observed ahead of me Cad, driving the Cadillac, enter the trailer park. I followed the Cadillac all the way into the park. The car stopped and the driver watched my house for about half a minute then proceeded around the whole park.
When the Cadillac left, I pulled up along side him and motioned for the driver, Cad, to roll down his window which he did. I then told him that he and the others carrying out the operation were not to come onto the trailer park property. I said that the manager had told his people that, and the police had been told and the police had told us that the followers had no legal right to come onto the property.
Cad then said that he had no choice but to come onto the property. He had orders to check if my car was there, and that was the only way he could do it. I reiterated that he and his associates were not welcome on the property, that I considered it a violation of my rights to privacy and they were trespassing. I requested that he pass on this message to his bosses.
