Possession of Dagger: On Oct. 29 at about 11:15 p.m., Corporal O’Con was patrolling the area of Sonoma Street and Fairfax Street. While patrolling this area, Corporal O’Con could hear a male subject yelling profanities towards the police. The suspect continued to yell and could be seen from the driver’s side mirror. Then Corporal O’Con heard a loud bottle smash near his vehicle, which led him to believe the subject had thrown a bottle at or near his patrol vehicle. The suspect then fled the scene toward the area of Elaine Way. Officer Mitz arrived shortly thereafter and contacted the suspect hiding behind vehicles on Elaine Way. When contacted, the suspect was uncooperative and refused to remove his hand from his left jacket pocket. Eventually the suspect complied with the officer’s commands.
After further investigation, Corporal O’Con retrieved a fixed blade kitchen knife, approximately 6.5 inches in length, in the suspect’s left jacket pocket. The suspect was arrested and booked at MCJ for being in violation of 21310 PC – possession of dirk or dagger.
