Parolee Found with Gun
A traffic stop led to an arrest for illegal firearm possession last weekend.
A patrolling officer pulled over a car for a traffic violation on Washington Avenue near the intersection of Springlake Drive on Jan. 6 at around 11:30 p.m., according to Lt. Jeff Tudor of the San Leandro police.
When the officer ran the driver’s information, it turned out the driver was on probation for drug and weapons charges, so the cop searched his vehicle.
A loaded 9 mm handgun was found in the center console of the car. Under the suspect’s terms of probation, he cannot posses the gun and he was arrested.
Brandishing a Knife
A woman was placed under a psychiatric hold after threatening someone at her apartment complex on the 900 block of 143rd Avenue last week.
Around 3:30 p.m. on Jan. 4, police were called to an apartment complex and saw a woman brandishing a knife at a maintenance worker there, according to Lt. Randy Brandt of the San Leandro police.
Officers subdued the woman and discovered that she was hallucinating that the worker was going to harm her and they took the woman to get help.
A woman was mugged as she walked on the 15000 block of Hesperian Boulevard last Wednesday at around 11:30 a.m.
The victim was approached by a man who ripped her purse from her shoulder and ran to a car being driven by another suspect, according to Lt. Randy Brandt of the SLPD. The car was described as a green Cadillac and was seen getting onto I-580 traveling toward Oakland.
Officers searched the southern part of Oakland, said Brandt. Around 12:30 p.m., an officer spotted the car and two suspects were detained and later identified by the victim. The suspects – both 18 years old, one from Oakland and one from Pinole – were arrested for robbery.
A woman requested that her adult son be arrested after a family disturbance at a home on the 2100 block of Orchard Avenue on Jan. 4 at around 4 a.m.
The two were fighting and the son alledgedly shoved his mother out of the room and forced the door closed on her, according to Lt. Randy Brandt of the SLPD. There were no injures, but the altercation with the door was enough for a battery arrest, Brandt said.
