“On December 17, 2021, at 7:11 a.m., officers responded Place Road and College Greens Drive after a resident reported a suspicious male in the area. The resident did not recognize the male and believed he was surveilling the neighborhood.

Officers arrived and contacted 27-year-old Obet Rodriguez. Rodriguez did not live in the neighborhood and was on Post Release Community Supervision (P.R.C.S). Officer searched Rodriguez and found he was in possession of a loaded handgun, heroin, methamphetamine, and drug paraphernalia.

Rodriguez was arrested and booked into the Los Banos Police Department Jail for a number of drug and weapons charges, his bail is set at $100,000.

A special thank you to our community for staying alert and reporting suspicious activity. As partners, we can work together to help reduce and prevent crime.

Great work Officer Martinez and Officer Cole!!!”
