On Wednesday, Nov. 22, 2023, around 12:53 AM, a Lafayette PD officer saw a vehicle in the area of Mt. Diablo Blvd. near the Highway 24 off-ramp that matched the description of a suspicious vehicle that had been parked in front of a resident’s mailbox a week ago. The officer conducted a traffic enforcement stop on the vehicle. The driver of the vehicle was on federal probation for mail theft.
The female passenger had methamphetamine next to her seat and lied about her name when questioned. When her true identity was revealed, it was determined she had four outstanding warrants for her arrest.
The other male passenger was in possession of drug paraphernalia, cocaine, and an unregistered Glock pistol.
The male and female were transported and booked into the Martinez Detention Facility. We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again. When the community is sleeping, our officers are out working!
