? At 10:12 p.m. officers responded to the Embassy Suites hotel at 901 E. Calaveras Blvd. after someone saw a man at the hotel concealing a handgun inside of his pants. Police were given a description of the suspect and at around 10:30 p.m. an officer saw a person matching the description in the parking lot. After a short chase, the suspect, later identified as a 17-year-old juvenile from San Jose, was taken into custody. The suspect had a loaded, high capacity handgun magazine in his possession. Officers checked the area where the suspect fled, and found a loaded handgun discarded in a bush. The suspect was booked into the Santa Clara County Juvenile Hall for being a minor in possession of a loaded firearm, a minor in possession of ammunition, and for resisting, delaying or obstructing a peace officer.
? At around 11:27 p.m. officers were patrolling in the 300 block of Ranch Drive and noticed a parked vehicle with the trunk open. When the officers approached the vehicle, they saw two people inside of the car. Police later identified the occupants as James Anthony Allen, 34, of San Jose and Stacy Segelin, 36, a transient. A computer check showed Seglin is on searchable probation out of Santa Clara County for various offenses. During a probation search officers located drug paraphernalia in her possession and a loaded handgun in a backpack in the vehicle. Officers determined the handgun belonged to Allen and a check on the handgun revealed it had not been legally registered. Allen was booked into the Santa Clara County Main Jail on suspicion of carrying a concealed loaded firearm in a vehicle and for carrying an unregistered handgun in a vehicle. Seglin was cited and released for possession of drug paraphernalia.

? During the early morning the Milpitas Police Department received a report of a suspicious social media posting regarding a possible threat at a nonspecific school. The Milpitas Police Department established the posting was based on several levels of hearsay but did not find any evidence to validate the possible threat. Although police said they did not identify an immediate danger to public safety, in an abundance of caution, police stepped up their presence on school grounds. Anyone with specific information about this incident is encouraged to call the Milpitas Police Department at (408) 586-2400. Additionally, the information can be given anonymously by calling the Crime Tip Hotline at (408) 586-2500 or via the Milpitas Police Department website at http://www.ci.milpitas.ca.gov/crimetip.
