  • On October 25, 2018: Monterey Police Officers were dispatched to Hunter’s Supply sporting goods for a theft of a firearm. PRVNT immediately began to work the case, and began looking for video. Video was located and circulated to law enforcement and the Detectives identified a possible suspect that had prior mental health commitments. Investigations determined this could be a serious threat to the community and wouldn’t go home until they located the gun. They authored a search warrant for the suspect’s residence and were able to contact the suspect via phone and have him surrender without incident. Inside the residence they located the stolen handgun and 50 rounds of handgun ammo. This incident is a great example of an aggressive team approach, which prevented a future tragedy.
