Vacaville Police make multiple drug and gun arrests in the past week – The Vacaville Reporter
Police officers in Vacaville arrested drugs and firearms last week.
Despite the arrests on October 5th and 6th, the information was released late Sunday evening on Vacaville Police’s social media site.
A patrolman carried out a traffic control on a vehicle for traffic violations on October 5th and contacted the driver who was later identified as Ayman Nashid Elahi, 45, from Vacaville and was wanted with an arrest warrant according to the wording of the post.
When the officer tried to remove Elahi from the vehicle, the suspect was “defiant and did not obey orders,” the post’s author wrote.
Eventually, however, Elahi was removed from the vehicle and taken into custody.
During an inventory search of the vehicle, a loaded .380 caliber firearm from Interarms was found in the back pocket of the passenger seat within range of Elahi. He was arrested on suspicion of narcotics possession and firearm-related crimes in addition to the pending warrant and posted in the Solano County Jail.
A review of prison records on Monday showed Elahi was no longer in custody, but Solano County Superior Court records showed that he was at the 22nd Center in Fairfield.
The next day, a patrol officer made a traffic check on another vehicle because of driving patterns that “correspond to DUI driving,” according to the wording of the post.
When the officer contacted the driver, later identified as Diamond M. Moore, 21, from Oakland, and the passenger, later identified as Danta Alan Reed, 21, from Fairfield, “the smell of marijuana was strong The vehicle and the marijuana bong were clearly visible, ”wrote the author of the post.
Both Moore and Reed followed the officers’ orders and were safely detained.
While searching for a likely reason for the search of the vehicle, officers allegedly found an unregistered Ruger-57 semi-automatic pistol in a duffel bag in the back seat with a 17-round magazine.
Both Moore and Reed reportedly admitted to owning the gun. They were arrested and taken to Solano County Jail on various charges, but the Post Office did not provide any additional information.
The prison records indicate that they are no longer in custody.
