SOUTHERN DIVISION COMMAND
Auto Theft/Marijuana Distribution Arrest
I would like to commend Officer Brendan Monlux for an outstanding proactive arrest in the parking lot of the Capitol Flea Market.
On 8/24/14, at approximately 0700, during his burglary suppression patrol time, Officer Monlux spotted a suspicious vehicle with no license plates in the parking lot of the Capitol Flea Market. A records check of the VIN revealed the car was stolen two weeks prior from Milpitas, CA. District officers from Southern Division responded to assist. The sole occupant was arrested and a search of the car revealed over 22lbs of marijuana, numerous unidentified garage door openers and car remote-entry key fobs, burglary tools and miscellaneous jewelry. The suspect was interviewed and booked into the county jail.
