PETALUMA – Two different parolees encountered law enforcement within 3 hours on September 6, ending with their arrests.
43-year-old Esmond Hedrington – at 6:36 p.m. officers arrived at the 7-11 at 2200 Lakeville Highway. The call concerned a male suspect who threatened to kill employees.
The threatnener left the store but responding officers located him based on the description they received. The profusely sweating Hedrington told officers “people were looking to get him.” He appeared to be under the influence of drugs.
Even cuffed, the suspect lunged at officers and attempting to flee. They added leg restraints to further hold Hedrington. He also had a knife and some meth in his possession.
In addition, the suspect was on active parole for a previous conviction of making criminal threats. His charges are resisting arrest, under the influence of a controlled substance and parole violation.
33-year-old Corrina Gonzalez – three hours later officers went to the Target at 401 Kenilworth Drive for a shoplifting call.
At first Gonzalez gave a false name. A further records check revealed that had an active felony parole warrant for assault with a deadly weapon.
Gonzalez’ charges are for shoplifting and the parole warrant.
