LONG BEACH, CALIF. USA — Good Samaratin Al Moreno in his Long Beach, Calif., home on March 7, 2013. Moreno, 67, saw a woman being robbed of her necklace at a Starbucks on 2nd Street in Belmont Shore, his instincts as a retired LAPD officer and former Marine kicked in. Moreno chased the thief down and held him in a police choke-hold until officers arrived. He then went back into Starbucks and finished his coffee. Moreno says he’s no hero. He also works as a private investigator, and in his time at LAPD, worked in one of the first official gang units.
