“On 07/07/2022 an officer was on routine patrol when his eyes were drawn to a vehicle that had multiple vehicle and equipment code violations. During a traffic stop, the officer observed narcotics in plain view while speaking to the driver. Officers learned that an occupant of the vehicle was on parole out of the county of Contra Costa (Richmond.) During a search of the vehicle, officers located a loaded Glock handgun with an extended magazine in a backpack behind the driver’s seat. The suspect, Tioshjina Moore, was arrested for multiple firearm related charges.
The very next day, 07/08/2022, an officer that was on routine patrol noticed a vehicle being driven with multiple equipment code violations. An officer conducted a traffic enforcement stop and made contact with the driver, Eddie Thomas, who was seen moments prior to the traffic stop manipulating something underneath his driver’s seat. During an enforcement stop, the officer was at the drivers door when his keen eye observed the butt-end of the handgun pultruding from underneath the drivers seat. Mr. Moore was safely detained and ultimately arrested for multiple firearm related charges.
Again, the next day on 07/09/2022, officers in the middle of the night responded to a call of someone reporting that a male later identified as, Carlos Juarez III, tried to breaking into his residence. Officer quickly responded to the area and located Mr. Juarez’ vehicle driving away from the victims address. A traffic/investigative stop was conducted and a probable cause search was later conducted. During a search of the vehicle, officers located a loaded Glock 26 handgun in a backpack behind the driver seat. Mr. Juarez III was booked into the Solano County Jail on a variety of charges.
On 07/16/2022 a very well-seasoned patrol officer was conducting a security check of the Stars Bowling Alley parking lot late at night. The officer spotted several people transferring items from one car to another. He then observed a vehicle (that was involved in the hand to hand) drive right past him with expired registration.
A traffic stop was conducted and smoke from an illegal substance was immediately smelled as the officer walked up to the vehicle. While the officer was speaking to the driver, Gabrielle Coh, he noticed a rear passenger acting quite nervous. He glanced at the floorboard of the rear passenger side and observed the passenger, Savannah Crews, had her feet literally on-top of two firearms trying to conceal them.
The occupants were again safely removed from the vehicle and detained. During a search of the vehicle, officers located those two firearms and determined them to have “full-automatic” switches on them. Due to this, the same officer had his partner officers contact the other occupants of the other vehicle that was seen being involved in the hand to hand transactions in the parking lot of the bowling ally.
The occupants of that vehicle were detained. During the detention, Shomari Williams and Troy Reddick, told officers that there was a loaded handgun under the front passenger seat. During a records check, that firearm was reported stolen out of Las Vegas, CA. All four individuals were booked into the Solano County Jail.
The same night of 07/16/2022, an officer was on routine patrol and observed a vehicle that had expired registration. After a traffic enforcement stop was conducted, he made contact with the driver, Tyler Rodgers, and it was learned that a significant amount of narcotics was inside the vehicle. Officers removed all occupants of the vehicle and conducted a probable cause search. During the search, officers located a polymer 80 handgun inside a fanny pack on the rear floorboard. Mr. Rodgers was transported to the Solano County Jail.
On 07/20/22 patrol responded to the intersection of Hazel Avenue and Brown Street in reference to a brandishing of a firearm that had just occurred. Officers contacted the victim, who stated a male, later identified as Aaron Scott, had just brandished a gun at her and left in a vehicle. Officers arrived on scene moments later and circulated the area for Mr. Scotts vehicle.
Officer spotted Mr. Scott driving away in a different vehicle that was described originally as Mr. Scotts car. A traffic/investigative stop was conducted in the 1200 block of Callen Street. Other patrol officers simultaneously conducted an area search of the lower Callen Street area and located the originally described suspect vehicle parked nearby the stop. In plain view on the front passenger seat was a Glock 26 handgun with an extended magazine. The vehicle was confirmed to belong to Mr. Scott and he was arrested for numerous charges and booked into County Jail.”
