SAN LEANDRO -- Fourteen San Leandro residents were arrested during parole and probation checks last week, when officers arrived unannounced at 23 locations and recovered a sizable amount of drugs, firearms and ammunition, police said Friday.
During the June 27 operation, three dozen officers recovered 653 rounds of ammunition, three firearms, 1.7 pounds of marijuana, an ounce of methamphetamine, and various small amounts of cocaine, hash, psychedelic mushrooms and prescription drugs, Lt. Jeff Tudor said.
The 14 residents arrested on suspicion of violating terms of their probation or parole by possessing the illegal items were identified as Raymond Villanueva, 38; Patrick Kim, 45; Darren Simmons, 36; Sundie Morrison, 36; Rory Christy, 34; Joseph Silva, 49; Richard Helton, 45; Anthony Gonzales, 21; David Pagan, 26; James Montgomery, 41; Bobbie Bustos, 24; Joseph Vicencia, 43; Mara Repke, 38; and Maria Santora, 26--all San Leandro residents.
Officers from other agencies including the Union City Police Department, the UC Berkeley Police Department and the California Department of Corrections also contributed to the audit.
"This was a coordinated effort by the San Leandro Police Department to make sure those who are on probation and parole are complying with the law and their probation and parole conditions," Tudor said. "It was a great collaboration of agencies coming together."
