Police have arrested a parolee for allegedly impersonating Corona city councilman Steve Nolan while trying to buy $1500 dollars in office supplies. Adding to the mystery is that investigators say the suspect, 37 year old Lorenzo Ciaramella, looks nothing like the councilman. Ciramella is six foot seven 465 pounds while councilman Nolan is 5 foot ten, 175 pounds.
