ANTIOCH — Three residents were in county jail after their arrests on suspicion of multiple charges after warrant service at several city addresses Tuesday, authorities said.
Officers from the department’s community engagement and problem-oriented policing teams and gang, traffic and special-operations units wrote and served a warrant, leading to arrests of three unidentified men ages 30, 47 and 62 in the 1800 block of Cavallo Road around 9:50 a.m., according to an Antioch police statement Tuesday evening.
The men were booked into county jail on suspicion of possession of cocaine and marijuana for sale, as well as parole violations.
A number of complaints over the last six months about suspicious loitering and possible narcotics sales spurred an investigation, leading so far to 13 firearms’ recovery and 18 arrests on suspicion of weapons and drug-related violations.
“The Antioch Police Department would like to extend their appreciation to the Drug Enforcement Agency(DEA), the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI), and California State Parole for their assistance in this investigation and takedown,” police said in part.
Anyone with information should call the department’s non-emergency line at 925-778-6922 or e-mail Antioch police Det. Ryan McDonald at email@example.com, or anonymously text-a-tip to 274637 (CRIMES) using the key word ANTIOCH.
