We couldn’t let this go by without sharing it with you.
While most were sleeping soundly early Friday morning, Feb. 12, 2021 our graveyard officers were busy at work. While patrolling our city they located a stolen vehicle driving through town.
The vehicle eventually pulled into a residential driveway, but our officers weren’t too keen on letting the occupants go any further.
The driver, 30-year-old Kevin Herman (Pleasant Hill) and passenger, 29-year-old Taylor Michelson (Oakley), were safely taken into custody. During the arrest, officers found a concealed loaded pistol, a collapsible baton, and property related to identity theft inside the vehicle.
Michelson had an outstanding felony warrant, and both males were given a ride to county jail on several charges including possession of a stolen vehicle and firearm related charges. According to LocalCrimeNews.com he has a history of arrests dating back to 2012 for such things as possession of drug paraphernalia, identity theft, receiving stolen property – motor vehicle and forgery.
Also according to the same website, Herman has a history of arrests by multiple agencies in Contra Costa County and the Bay Area dating back to 2013 for such things as drug possession, residential robbery, burglary, shoplifting and petty theft.
Criminals never stop ……. and neither do we!
