By Brentwood Police Department
Friday morning April 17, 2020 at around 8 AM, an alert Brentwood resident called in a report of a suspicious person with a large knife in his back pocket. He was not brandishing the knife and was last seen walking near a creek in the area of Tuckahoe Way.
Officers arrived minutes later and located Adam Ortega, a 35-year-old resident of Brentwood. Ortega was cooperative with police and was found to be in possession of the following items: a machete, hatchet, a knife and a billy club.
Ortega is the same man arrested for vandalism and petty theft from a homeowner on Baird Circle on April 11. Both of these investigations will be updated and forwarded to our District Attorney’s Office for review. (See related article)
Ortega was arrested for felony possession of a billy club and a misdemeanor probation violation. He was transported and booked into the Martinez Detention Facility.
We appreciate our community for their support and remaining vigilant.
