  • On September 10, 2019: Officers spotted a vehicle driving the wrong way on Del Monte passing Alvarado. Officers initiated a traffic stop on the vehicle at Del Monte and Pacific. The two occupants of the vehicle told officers they did not have their driver’s license in their possession and verbally identified themselves. Upon running a registration check on the vehicle’s license plate, the officers learned that it was not issued to this vehicle. Therefore, a decision was made to tow the vehicle. During the inventory search of the vehicle prior to towing, the officers located a loaded and concealed firearm, burglary tools, and a number of stolen mail, checks, identification cards, social security cards and credit cards. The occupants were subsequently arrested. The officers should be commended for great team work resulting in great investigative police work.
