The SAPD has released their weekly firearms seizure update, for the week of 01/29/2022 – 02/4/2022.
SAPD Met detectives observed a vehicle speeding in the area of First Street and Grand Ave. The driver attempted to evade the police officers by pulling into an Arco gas station and immediately exited the vehicle.
As an officer approached the suspect reached into his front waistband and discarded a loaded firearm onto the floorboard of his vehicle.
The officers recovered the firearm and also found narcotics in the vehicle. To top it all off the suspect turned out to be a convicted felon who will now get to enjoy endless bologna sandwiches in prison again.
