“On August 30th, 2022, members of the Narcotic and Gang Enforcement Task Force (NET-5) arrested SGE blood gang member, Jakiem Gerard Halstead after he agreed to sell undercover narcotic agents’ cocaine in the Walmart parking lot. Halstead, who was in possession of the cocaine during the arrest was booked into the Sutter County Jail on August 30th, 2022. NET-5 Agents continued the investigation and developed information indicating Halstead had been supplied the cocaine he possessed for sale by fellow Blood gang member Rayshon Bishop (46 years old of Yuba City). NET-5 Agents obtained a search warrant for two residences in Yuba City believed to be under the dominion and control of Bishop.
On September 12th, 2022, NET-5 Agents, with the assistance of the Yuba City Police Department and the Sutter County Sheriff’s Office Investigations Unit, executed a search warrant on Bishop and his two residences located in the 300 block of Grant Way and the 1700 block of Hunt Street, both in Yuba City. During the execution of the search warrant, NET-5 Agents located a loaded firearm, cocaine, packaging, ecstasy, and $3,790 in U.S. currency. Those items were found inside Bishop’s primary residence on Hunt Street. Bishop, a convicted felon, was contacted and detained a few blocks away from his residence. Bishop was ultimately arrested and booked into the Sutter County Jail for charges of: conspiracy to sell narcotics per 182(a)(1) of the California Penal Code, possession of a controlled substance for sale per 11351 of the California Health and Safety Code, felon in possession of a firearm per section 29800(a)(1) of the California Penal Code, possession of ammunition per section 30305(a)(1) of the California Penal Code, and possession of ecstasy (MDMA) per section 11377(a) of the California Health and Safety Code.
This investigation was forwarded to the Sutter County District Attorney’s Office.”
