At 1:19 p.m., Major Crimes Task Force Detectives Holt and Gannam contacted Davante Williams standing in front of his residence on Meteor Drive. Mr. Williams is active to probation and subject to being searched as a condition of his probation. A probation search was conducted at Mr. Williams' residence. Eric Bailey was contacted inside the residence and is also active to probation. Stolen property from recent armed robberies was recovered during the probation search. Officers also located a loaded 9 mm semiautomatic handgun under a bed inside the residence. Both suspects were arrested on multiple charges to include robbery, possession of stolen property, and weapons violations. The suspects in this case are believed to be responsible for multiple armed robbery cases, many of which have been highlighted in recent "Blotter" reports.
At 4:40 p.m., the victim was driving his BMW on Alvarado Niles Road, when two vehicles drove past him. The victim witnessed the front passenger of a gray Toyota lean outside the vehicle and fire three shots at a black Lexus. Both vehicles fled the area without either party contacting local police departments. The victim's BMW was struck by stray bullets during the incident. The victim described the suspect as firing a black semiautomatic firearm at the other vehicle. The suspect was described as a Hispanic male, about 24 years old, with short blonde hair, a moustache, and a heavy build. The suspect vehicle was described as a small Toyota, gray in color, manufactured between 2007 and 2008.

At 5:34 p.m., a neighbor reported seeing a male break a window and enter a residence on Via La Paz. Responding officers established a perimeter around the residence and made announcements for anyone inside to come out. The suspect realized police had surrounded the residence and he made his way to the roof of the garage. After a brief discussion the suspect decided to surrender and was arrested for burglary.

At 4:14 a.m., the victim saw two suspects breaking into his vehicle on Solar Circle. The suspects fled the area as the victim approached them. The suspects were described as white males about 22 years old.
At 4:39 p.m., Officer Bankston stopped a vehicle near Alvarado Middle School. Officer Bankston smelled the odor of marijuana as he contacted the driver. The driver admitted to having a "little marijuana" inside the vehicle when questioned about the odor. Apparently having almost two pounds of marijuana in the trunk of your vehicle qualifies as a "little marijuana". The driver was arrested for having a "little marijuana" and a suspended driver's license.
Anyone with information on any of the listed cases should contact the Investigations Division at 510-675-5247.
