Citizens called to report several subjects carrying what appeared to be stolen property down Laiolo Road. One citizen chased the suspects at which time one suspect brandished a firearm. The suspects fled the area, two fleeing on foot and one fleeing in a silver Dodge Intrepid. Prior to fleeing, the suspects dropped most of the stolen property which included several firearms. Officers were unable to locate the suspects after an extensive search of the area. A nearby residence had been burglarized. Several additional firearms were located inside the victim's residence.
A daughter called police to report that a young woman was trying to get the caller's 90 year-old father to lend the woman money. The 25 year-old suspect claimed that she was only attempting to buy the elderly man's car, but it is highly likely she was instead trying to steal his money.
A very slow night until 3 a.m. when two males with rifles were reported chasing another male into a home on Delaware near Fremont. Units arrived and surrounded the house. As a team is about to approach the house, a single male came out the front door, saying that nobody else was inside. A consent search was completed with negative results. The male felt it may have been his ex-father in law who made the call.
A witness called to report a male climbing over her neighbor's fence on Royal Palm. She then saw the first male let the second male in through the front door. Officers Luevano and Bocage happened to be around the corner, and started a hasty perimeter. As units were arriving, Officer Luevano saw the two suspects walking away from the house on Blacksands. Both were detained and ultimately arrested. Det. MacDonald arrived to assist with the investigation.
Several callers report two adults and a juvenile fighting near the Ross Store at The Hub. Officers arrived and realized the adults are Loss Prevention personnel from Safeway. The juvenile suspect had physically assaulted the two when they attempted to detain him. The suspect fled over the rear wall of the Islander Motel and Officer Hollifield spotted him emerging from the Lakeview Apartments on the Lorren Drive side. Officer Hollifield pursued the suspect on foot and captured him inside the complex. The 15 year-old was arrested for theft and resisting arrest.
Officer Chahouati spotted a suspicious vehicle quickly exit the parking lot of Chapel 7-11. A car stop was initiated and contact made with a 25 year-old female on parole and unlicensed. During a search, multiple items from various burglaries from other cities were located. The female was arrested for possession of stolen property and parole violation.
The Union 76 gas stations at Mowry/Argonaut and Warm Springs/Warren were burglarized most likely by the same suspect. Loss includes Marlboro cigarettes and lottery tickets. Video from the Mowry/Argonaut showed an East Indian male, mid to late 40's wearing a long sleeved red shirt, blue jeans, and white tennis shoes. Suspect vehicle was a dark color 2-door Honda or Toyota.
