At 11:47 a.m., officers were dispatched to a residence on Vallejo Street to investigate a hand grenade being located. Residents located what appeared to be a live hand grenade underneath their residence. The residents removed the grenade from underneath their home and placed it in their backyard. Arriving officers agreed the item appeared authentic and the Alameda County Bomb Squad was called to the location. The Bomb Squad collected the grenade and transported it to an offsite location for destruction.
Officers responded to an address on Queensboro Way at 10:28 a.m. Officers surrounded the residence in an attempt to arrest a subject with two felony warrants. The subject decided to come out of the residence and surrender after hiding in the attic for a few minutes.
April 23 a resident reported seeing two black male adults in his backyard on Devonshire Street at 10:40 p.m. The two suspects rang the doorbell at the residence and then entered the backyard after receiving no answer at the front door. The two suspects fled the backyard when they encountered the homeowner.
At 12:07 a.m., a similar incident occurred approximately one mile away where a residence was burglarized on Belami Loop. A witness to the burglary reported an unknown black male knocking on the front door before he entered the side yard of the victim residence. Officers arrived and discovered the residence was burglarized. It is unknown if the two incidents involve the same suspects. Anyone with information about these incidents should contact the Investigations Unit.
