Two Arrested in Stolen Motor home Found Behind McDonald’s

Brian C. Newton and Priscilla S. Vasquez

NEWARK – Memorial Day weekend festivities were cut short for a man and a woman caught inside a stolen motor home, a few days after they both celebrated their birthdays.

Police arrested two suspects and recovered a stolen motor home last Sunday night in a parking lot behind a McDonald’s restaurant located at 3000 Newpark Mall Road.

Officers found the motor home shortly before 10 p.m. on May 28, which had been reported stolen in Oakland, and detained the driver Priscilla S. Vasquez, 31, of Oakland, and her passenger Brian C. Newton, 34, of Fremont.

Vasquez, an unemployed person, was arrested and booked at Santa Rita Jail, charged with possession of a stolen vehicle. She’s being held in lieu of $20,000 bail.

The other suspect, Newton, as it turns out had several outstanding arrest warrants for suspected felonies, and is subject to having his probation revoked from a prior conviction.

Police searched the motor home, where they located burglary tools, and keys to a Nissan car that was parked nearby. Police also searched the Nissan, where a loaded flare gun and several flares were found inside.

Newton was arrested on multiple felony charges, including possession of a controlled substance, possession of methamphetamine, transportation or sale of methamphetamine, possession of a firearm by a felon, carrying a concealed firearm, carrying a loaded firearm in public, and unlawful driving or possession of a vehicle, among other charges.

Newton who is a student, remains in custody at Santa Rita Jail, ineligible for release on bail.
