SAUSALITO — After his seven prior arrests for vehicle thefts, Treyvonn Cook’s most recent arrest breaks with one tradition. This time the 21-year-old construction worker sat as a passenger for a change. But it didn’t prevent his arrest for illicit handgun and cocaine possession.
Cook, who resides locally, rode inside a car cruising near Kappa Yacht Harbor after 10 p.m. on May 25. The driver caught the attention of Marin County Sheriff’s Office deputies.
The driver rolled through a stop sign at North Bridge Boulevard and Bridgeway. This resulted in an otherwise routine traffic stop that turned into a much more serious matter—and let the driver off the hook.
While approaching the vehicle the deputy smelled the aroma of cannabis wafting from inside. A subsequent search of the vehicle turned up suspected cocaine and a loaded handgun in Cook’s possession.
Deputies arrested Cook and released the driver. Upon further investigation, deputies learned that the gun was reported stolen in San Joaquin County.
Law enforcement booked Cook on several charges including possession of cocaine base for sale, carrying a loaded stolen firearm, manufacture, import or sale of a large capacity magazine, and being addict in possession of a firearm.
Cook remains in custody at Marin County Jail with no bail set. His arraignment in Marin County Superior Court is on June 4.
