Assault/Possession of Narcotics, Illegal Weapons and Stolen Vehicles
Colma, CA – On 4/24/23 at approximately 5:50pm, Colma Officers responded to what appeared to be an accident that occurred in the Colma Police Department front parking lot. When officers arrived, they found three vehicles involved in what appeared to have been a road rage incident with two of the vehicles, a black Dodge Challenger and a white BMW 328i, chasing the third vehicle, a grey Chevrolet Silverado. After further investigation, the Dodge was determined to be an outstanding stolen vehicle with false license plates. That driver, a 29-year-old male from San Jose, was ultimately arrested and booked into the San Mateo County Jail for assault with a deadly weapon, possession of a stolen vehicle, and conspiracy to commit a felony. The driver of the BMW, a 43-year-old male from San Jose, was arrested and booked into the San Mateo County Jail for possession of narcotics with intent to sell, assault with a deadly weapon, felon in possession of a firearm, conspiracy, and additional narcotics and weapons charges. Both suspects remain in custody.
Officers developed information that led them to believe that additional weapons and narcotics would be located in a San Jose residence. On 4/26/23, with the assistance of San Jose Police Department’s MERGE Unit, officers served a search warrant at a residence located on the 900 block of College Drive, San Jose. During the search, officers located nine additional weapons, over three pounds of methamphetamines, and recovered a stolen motorcycle. The 38-year-old male resident was booked for possession of narcotics with intent to sell, felon in possession of a firearm, committing a felony while on bail, and numerous other narcotics and weapons violations. He was booked into the Santa Clara County Jail.
