Police arrest prowler
Submitted By Officer W. Qureshi, Milpitas PD
On February 12, 2012, Milpitas Police officers arrested one person and detained another for prowling, resisting arrest and narcotics possession. Milpitas police officers responded to a burglary alarm in the 300 block of Los Coches Street. The alarm company reported seeing a person on the roof of a commercial building. When officers arrived they saw Jeffrey Calkins, a 46 year-old transient, in front of the business. He matched the description of the subject seen on the roof. Officers tried to stop Calkins, but he fled on foot. Searching for Calkins, officers located Suspect #2, identified as a 55 year-old Vacaville resident, hiding in some nearby bushes.
While officers were talking to Suspect #2, two other officers spotted Calkins and gave chase. When they caught up to Calkins, a struggle ensued and Calkins was handcuffed. A search of a car used by the suspects, - a gold 4-door, Saturn SL - uncovered various tools used to cut pipes and wire. Officers also located controlled substances and drug paraphernalia in the car.
Calkins was booked into the Santa Clara County Jail for resisting arrest, prowling, possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, and for being under the influence of a controlled substance. Calkins had two outstanding felony warrants for his arrest.
Suspect #2 experienced a medical emergency and was transported to an area hospital for treatment. An arrest warrant is being requested for Suspect #2 for possession of a controlled substance, and prowling.
