OAKLEY — The new Oakley Police Department Special Services Team (SST) and Investigations Unit are off to a good start. Officers arrested three suspects and recovered illicit drugs, one firearm, two stolen vehicles, among other evidence. Oakley PD has been investigating suspected criminal activity on the 5500 block of Daffodil Drive. This investigation culminated in the execution of a search warrant on the afternoon of July 27.
Recovered evidence from the suspected “drug house” suggests the home was also used for disassembling stolen vehicles and selling parts. Five detached vehicle identification numbers and an altered vehicle title were found inside the home.
One man and two women were taken into custody on July 27 shortly before 4 p.m.
- Michael W. Mohr, 53, of Oakley, is being held in custody at the Martinez Detention Facility in lieu of $135,000 bond. Mohr faces charges for maintaining a drug house, illicit drug sales, possession of stolen property, and felon firearm possession.
- Angelique M. Andrade, 50, of Oakley, is in custody at the West County Detention Facility, in lieu of $60,000 bond. Andrade faces charges for operating a so-called chop shop, illicit drug sales, and possession of stolen property.
- Cassie M. Fredrickson, 39, of Oakley, remains in custody at the Martinez Detention Facility in lieu of $100,000 bond. Fredrickson faces multiple charges, including identification theft and possession of stolen property.
The new Oakley police SST unit was created in July to address quality of life issues and criminal trends affecting residents. In a prepared statement Oakley police chief Paul Beard said. “Recent staff increases bring our patrol division to full strength, establish the SST and fill all our detective openings.”
