Santa Rosa police arrested two people and confiscated two guns after responding to reports of possible gang activity.
Police responded on January 8th to the area of Kenton Court, where two anonymous callers had reported that a large group of people were blocking the court and one of them swinging a bat. The callers also indicated their suspicion that it was some sort of gang activity, as everyone in the group appeared to be wearing distinct articles of red clothing, police said.
Prior to deploying patrol units, the department sent a drone to investigate and confirmed that there indeed appeared to be a large group people blocking the court. A Special Enforcement Team unit and several patrol units then responded to the area, at which point the group scattered.
Officers nonetheless ended up detaining two of the individuals, identified as 25-year-old Ramon Contreras and 21-year-old Adrian Liscano-Ramos. Police reportedly also found a loaded .380 caliber semiautomatic handgun at Contreras’s feet and a 9mm semiautomatic handgun with an extended magazine in a nearby vehicle.
Contreras was ultimately arrested and booked on suspicion of possession of a firearm not registered to him and an outstanding arrest warrant, while Liscano-Ramos was booked on suspicion of probation violation.
