At 2:11 a.m., a NPD Officer attempted to stop a vehicle traveling at a high rate of speed exiting S/B 880 onto Mowry Ave. The vehicle failed to yield and drove erratically to the EZ-8 parking lot where the driver, Newark Resident John Amos, exited and jumped over the parking lot wall into the nearby parking lot of Pape Machinery located at 38600 Cedar Boulevard. After establishing a perimeter, Officer Jackman and his K9 partner located the suspect on the freeway side of the Pape fence. Amos is on parole and was wearing a GPS monitor. He broke an ankle while running from the police and was transported to a local hospital and is pending surgery on his ankle.
All NPD units responded at 2:21 p.m. to assist with searching for two juveniles missing from Schilling School following an early dismissal at 1:05 p.m. Kudos to the NPD Explorers who also responded to assist with neighborhood searches. Simultaneously, the Newark Unified School District activated their telephone tree system at our request. The children were returned home by a parent who received the NUSD telephone notification andrealized the missing children were playing with her own children.
NPD units responded to Wells Fargo Bank (34988 Newark Boulevard) at 6:03 p.m. on a report of a subject trying to pass a fraudulent check. Officer Hogan arrested Henry Hinton, Antioch resident for burglary and forgery.
