On Sunday, 7/11/21 at approximately 1:00 am, an officer with the Santa Rosa Police Department stopped a vehicle in the area of Dutton Avenue and W. Barham Road for a vehicle code violation.
The driver began reaching toward the floorboard of the vehicle, ignoring instructions to stop and to exit the car. The officer was able to quickly and safely pull the man from the vehicle and detain him in handcuffs without incident or injury.
A loaded .45 caliber semi-automatic handgun equipped with a 26-round magazine was located under the driver’s seat of the car, inches away from where the officer saw the suspect reaching. SRPD Case #21-7365.
19-year-old Alberto Arias of Santa Rosa was arrested and booked into jail for the following charges:
25400(a)(1) PC – Carrying a concealed firearm in a vehicle
25850(a) PC – Carrying a loaded firearm in a vehicle
148(a)(1) PC – Resist or obstruct a peace officer in the discharge of his or her duty
Approximately three hours later, the same officer contacted a man walking in the area of Brockhurst Drive and W. Third Street. The officer learned the man was wanted for an unrelated charge and arrested him. Prior to contacting the man, the officer heard what he believed to be the “clink” of metal hitting the ground. A search of the area uncovered a .357 caliber semi-automatic handgun wrapped in a black ski mask. The gun was not loaded.
27-year-old Devin Braddi of Santa Rosa was arrested and booked into jail for the following charges:
25400(a)(2) PC – Carrying a concealed firearm
29800(a)(1) PC – Convicted felon in possession of a firearm.
It should be noted both firearms appear to be Polymer80 “ghost guns” which are unregulated and unregistered guns that are typically assembled privately after purchasing the individual parts or kits online.
