Police arrest girlfriend one day earlier.
Seaside police made two arrests over the weekend after they responded to a tip that a felony suspect was at a local hotel on Saturday, February 9.
As the Sand City Police were setting up a perimeter outside the Gateway Hotel on Fremont Boulevard the felony warrant suspect, Glenn Andrew Edwards, 19, and his girlfriend, April Nicole Buckley, 18, ran from the area in an attempt to elude them.
According to Seaside Police Department Deputy Chief Louis Lumpkin, “Edwards was wanted on robbery charges stemming from a January 30 incident.”
As the couple turned around the corner, the officers heard a small caliber gunshot. It is unknown who fired the shot as the suspects were out of sight of police. One of the officers caught up with Buckley a short time later, who bit him on the arm as she was being taken into custody. Buckley was booked into the Monterey County Jail on charges of assaulting a peace officer, resisting arrest and committing a felony while released on bail.
Meanwhile, Edwards left Buckley behind and continued to flee jumping over multiple fences that aided in his escape.
An extensive search was launched for him with the assistance of other agencies. A California Highway Patrol Air Helicopter and a K-9 unit assisted in the search but Edwards was not located. The search continued until 10:45 p.m.
“We were unable to determine whether he was shooing at the officers,” Deputy Chief Lumpkin said. “A weapon was never recovered neither time we encountered Edwards.”
About 24-hours later, Seaside Police Department initialized another search for Edwards. He was found a short time later sleeping in a family member’s vehicle in the parking lot of Del Monte Manor.
The Seaside Police were able to gain access to the vehicle and Edwards was swiftly taken into custody. He was transported to Monterey County Jail and booked on charges of committing a robbery with a firearm.
Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to contact the Seaside Police Department at 831-899-6748 or the Anonymous Tip-Line at 831-899-6282.
