SAN RAMON — Zakkery S. Vance, 30, has been getting in trouble with the law since 2014. His latest arrest predicaments involve methamphetamine, weapons, and theft from a child. Vance allegedly stole an electric scooter belonging to a 13-year-old boy.

The child’s scooter was stolen New Year’s Day. It went missing outside a Target store, located at 4300 Las Positas Road in Pleasanton.

Investigators identified Vance who lives in Modesto as the suspected thief. On January 26, San Ramon police arrested him for methamphetamine and weapons-related offenses. He also stands accused of using tear gas, carrying a concealed dirk or dagger, and felony possession of a stun gun.

Vance was questioned and subsequently arrested by Livermore PD on February 4 for grand theft. He told detectives that he stole the scooter and sold it to someone in Modesto. Apparently, the buyer was unaware that the scooter was reported stolen. Livermore police returned the scooter to the 13-year-old boy.

The Alameda County District Attorney’s Office filed one misdemeanor charge against Vance on February 7 for petty theft PC 484(a). His other case in Contra Costa County is pending. Incidentally, Vance was on parole for a prior conviction at the time of his two latest arrests.

Vance also has prior arrests on his record in Stanislaus County. These involve assault with a deadly weapon, drugs, and robbery, among other offenses.
