On September 2, at approximately 10:00 p.m., officers from the Special Enforcement and K9 units attempted to conduct a traffic stop on a vehicle for a traffic violation. The vehicle stopped near the intersection of Statham Blvd. and Sunkist Cr. Adolfo Marin, a passenger in the vehicle, fled but was quickly apprehended. During the foot pursuit Marin discarded a loaded handgun which was recovered at the scene. Marin had a prior conviction for firearms possession which makes him a prohibited person. The remaining occupants (Ortega, Garcia, and Steir) were in possession of methamphetamine and arrested for narcotics violations. Jacob Steir, who is on parole for a previous shooting, was also placed on a parole hold.
The officers conducted a follow up investigation at a hotel that the suspects had recently left and made contact with suspect Amber Perez, who is on parole for narcotics sales. Officers searched the room and located a loaded handgun in the bed that Perez was sitting on. Perez was arrested for being a prohibited person (felon) in possession of a loaded handgun.
