Four charged so far in 4/20-related arrests 

Four suspects arrested for alleged malfeasance during this year's 4/20 celebration in Golden Gate Park have been charged with crimes, according to the District Attorney's Office, and a few more are pending as the smoke clears.

One man, Carlos Ventura, 22, of Antioch, pleaded not guilty Wednesday to four felony counts of charges related to being a felon in possession of a loaded and concealed firearm and one misdemeanor count of being in possession of concentrated cannibas, Assistant District Attorney Alex Bastian said.

According to court records, Ventura has a prior strike for participating in a street gang.

His bail was set at $150,000 for the charges announced Wednesday, however, since he is on a parole hold, he will remain in custody.

His next day in court is May 6 for a preliminary hearing, Bastian said.

Another man has been charged with felony vandalism for reportedly smashing a window at Amoeba Records on Haight Street.

Reggie Love, 33, of San Francisco, was charged with felony vandalism and a misdemeanor count of being in possession of concentrated cannibas, Bastian said.

Love has bailed out of custody at $25,000 and will return to court Thursday for arraignment.

Two other men have been charged with felony counts related to the sale and possession of marijuana, Bastian said.

Christopher Dougherty, 20, of Patterson, pleaded not guilty to felony sale of marijuana.

He and his alleged partner, 22-year-old Mason McClaine, of Lodi, reportedly got caught up in a buy-bust operation near the McDonald's in the Upper Haight, according to court records. An undercover reportedly asked the two if they had "trees" referring to marijuana for sale.

Dougherty pleaded not guilty to the charges and was released on his own recognizance.

McClaine will be in court for arraignment Thursday.
