“HOLLISTER, CALIFORNIA – August 30, 2021– The Hollister Police Department arrested an out of county man for three out of county warrants, possession of brass knuckles and possession of drug paraphernalia.
On August 29, 2021, at about 1:42 P.M., Hollister Police Officers were dispatched to the 2000 block of Eldene Drive for a report of a man who was allegedly tampering with vehicles. The man had reportedly been looking into multiple vehicles attempting to gain entry.
As Officers responded to the area the man was confronted by residents who dialed 911 updating dispatch of the subject’s location. The suspect then began to jump over fences and run through back yards attempting to escape.
Officers arrived and contacted the man, who matched the description given by a resident, Dwight Andrew Cameron (56). He was detained without incident. A records check of Cameron’s identity revealed he had two felony warrants and one misdemeanor warrant for his arrest. Coincidently one of Cameron’s felony warrants was for being in possession of a stolen vehicle.
During further investigation, Officers located brass knuckles and a methamphetamine glass pipe in Cameron’s possession. Hollister Police Officers also learned that the San Benito County Sheriff’s Office had previously received a call of a subject burglarizing a vehicle in the county and Cameron matched this description.
Cameron was booked into the San Benito County jail for felony possession of brass knuckles, possession of drug paraphernalia and the three outstanding warrants out of Santa Clara County.
The Police Department would like to thank those residents that called police to report the suspicious behavior. It is another example of police and residents partnering to make Hollister a safer place to live.
