BRENTWOOD — A five-time convicted felon got arrested again soon after being released from custody at the Martinez Detention Facility. Gustavo Montanorazo, 35, of Concord, was carrying paperwork pertaining to his jail release when he got arrested again. 

It seems Montanorazo was driving a vehicle reported stolen in Antioch. An unidentified passenger with him was arrested also—for an outstanding warrant. 

At the time of his latest arrest, Montanorazo had in his possession a sawed-off shotgun and ammunition. Brentwood police also found him in possession of social security cards, vehicle titles, checks, and keys not belonging to him. 

Montanorazo is suspected of committing multiple crimes. Officers responded June 23 to the 7200 block of Brentwood Boulevard at 2:30 a.m., after a man attempted to steal mail. The man who was wearing a ski mask fled as officers arrived on the scene. 

The stolen vehicle the suspect used to flee was found unoccupied parked on Havenwood Avenue. Stolen mail and burglary tools were found inside the vehicle. 

At 4:15 a.m., police received a report that a man stole a package from a porch on Stratford Way. The man matched the description of the same suspect later identified as Montanorazo. Officers found him walking nearby and arrested him. 

Montanorazo faces multiple charges including – 

  • Felon in possession of a firearm 
  • Possession of a short-barrel rifle 
  • Possession of stolen property 
  • Possession of burglary tools 
  • Possession of a controlled substance 
  • Identity theft 
  • Petty theft
