False identity arrest
Submitted By Sgt Daryl Sequeira, Milpitas PD
On July 28, at 12:41 a.m., Officer Reuben Lopez noticed a suspicious vehicle in a parking lot of a closed business. Officer Lopez had prior knowledge that the business had been victimized by copper thieves in the past and as he approached the vehicle, it suddenly left the area. Officer Lopez immediately conducted a traffic stop.
During the investigation, one of the passengers provided a name, but identifiers listed in the state database did not match the passenger's physical appearance. Upon further investigation, Officer Lopez determined the true identity of the passenger as Bonnie Levy, a 30 year-old San Jose resident. A computer check revealed Levy had multiple outstanding warrants for her arrest, exceeding $200,000 in bail, for various offenses including burglary, forgery, and giving false information to a police officer.
Bonnie Levy was arrested for giving false information to a police officer and for
outstanding warrants. She was booked into the Santa Clara County Main Jail.
