Around 11:45 a.m. officers were dispatched to Union Landing shopping center on the report of a robbery. A delivery driver was unloading packages from a truck when two male suspects stole several boxes. They fled in an older model, light metallic Acura four-door. The first suspect was described as a black male, about 30 years-old, standing 6-feet-1 inches tall and weighing about 180 pounds. The second suspect was described as a black male, standing between 5-feet-9-inches and 5-feet-11-inches tall with a medium build. This incident is like one that occurred the previous week and is under investigation.
At around 10:20 p.m. Officer Rivas conducted a traffic stop in the area around Decoto Road and Mission Boulevard. A probation search of the vehicle yielded a large amount of methamphetamine and evidence indicative of sales. Ernie Martinez, 46, of Union City, was arrested.
At around 2 a.m. Officer Olson contacted two occupants inside a suspicious vehicle near the Hayward/Union City border.
