Three Concord residents were arrested in the City of Pleasanton this week for possession of stolen property, forgery, consipracy and drug related charges, according to the Pleasanton Police Department.
The following information is from the Pleasanton Police Department:
On Friday, January 3, 2014, at 9:20 p.m. a resident on MacDonald Court in Pleasanton reported seeing a subject removing mail from nearby mailboxes. The subject then left the area in a compact silver hatchback style vehicle. Responding officers located a silver 2011 Nissan Versa at the end of Olsen Drive occupied by four male subjects who were not from the area.
A consent search of the vehicle resulted in the discovery of suspected stolen mail from multiple addresses in Pleasanton, as well as thirteen other cities within Contra Costa, San Mateo, and Solano Counties.
The suspects were arrested and booked into Santa Rita Jail for possession of stolen property, forgery, conspiracy, and drug related charges. They were identified as 18 year old Elmer Aguilar of Concord, 26 year old Gustavo E. Rivas of Concord, 31 year old Ruben J. Ramirez of Concord, and 23 year old David A. Gonzalez of Antioch.
The capture of these suspects was due to a resident’s keen observation and immediate reporting of suspicious activity to police. The Pleasanton Police Department encourages citizens to help reduce crime by immediately reporting suspicious behavior.
