Mutual Aid/Stolen Vehicle and Possession of Unregistered Gun
On 04/17/20, at 3:04 am, four juvenile suspects were observed by a Colma Police Officer exiting what was later determined to be a stolen vehicle, at the 1700 block of Hillside Boulevard. The suspects walked east onto private property and additional Officers were dispatched to the area to locate the suspects who were now hiding from responding Police Officers. After the suspects were located, a search of the area revealed one of the suspects had attempted to hide a loaded handgun inside a hole in the ground on the property. Two of the suspects were arrested with one of them admitting to having possession of the firearm. The stolen vehicle and all four suspects were involved in an ongoing investigation with the Redwood City Police Department. All four juvenile suspects were released to their parents. Colma case information was forwarded to Redwood City PD to assist with their investigation.
No Colma Police Officers participated in the San Mateo County Saturation Traffic Enforcement Program (STEP), or the San Mateo County Gang Task Force deployment as both details were cancelled.
