A parolee is back in police custody after sawing off his ankle monitoring bracelet, which constitutes a parole violation.
Jonathan Schwartz allegedly sawed off the bracelet while riding on a commuter bus. Police were alerted when another passenger found the device and brought it to the Burbank police station. According to police the bracelet showed obvious signs of being cut with some type of sharp tool.
The police found Schwartz at a home in the Burbank area and brought him into custody, where he remains without bail.
