Teens were seen Brandishing a Baseball Bat
HOLLISTER—The Hollister Police Department arrested two teenagers after they found weapons and drugs in the teen’s vehicle on Tuesday night, December 4th.
At 9:00 p.m. on Tuesday night, Hollister Police Officer Bill Hutchison was on routine patrol when he witnessed a young man brandish a baseball bat at another passing vehicle. Officer Hutchison went back to investigate the incident.
As Officer Hutchison arrived, he noticed that the teenager had entered a parked vehicle that was parked in the city parking lot on 4th street. The young man told Officer Hutchison that he was in a dispute with the occupant of the other vehicle.
A vehicle check by the officer revealed other weapons besides the baseball bat. Officer Hutchison found a switchblade knife and a set of brass knuckles. Officers also found hashish in the vehicle along with other drug paraphernalia.
The two unidentified juveniles were taken into custody and transported to the San Benito County Juvenile Hall. One Teenager was booked on charges of possession of a switchblade knife, possession of a switchblade knife in a vehicle, possession of bras knuckles and possession of hashish. The other teenager was booked on charges of possession of a billy club, possession of a switchblade knife in a vehicle, possession of hashish and transportation of narcotics.
“You see switchblades and brass knuckles are routinely sold over the Internet but they are banned weapons in California and possession of them, is illegal.” Hollister Police Captain Carols Reynoso said in a pres release, “ Hashish is a concentrated or compressed purified form of marijuana.”
The Hollister Police Department is still investigating this incident and is asking anyone with information to call the Hollister Police Department at 1-831-636-4330
