|RPDPS officers slog through unusually busy night Feb. 1
It was an unusually busy night for Rohnert Park Dept. of Public Safety Officers on Feb. 1, as nine individuals were arrested on a variety of charges.
The arrests are as follows:
• Danyell Lindsay, 25, of Sacramento, was arrested for four outstanding arrest warrants.
• Tyree Gates, 22, of Sacramento, was arrested for driving on a suspended license and outstanding arrest warrants.
• A 16-year-old Rohnert Park boy, whose name is being withheld because of his age, allegedly wandered into a home where he didn’t belong. Upon contact with him, he showed signs of being under the influence of a controlled substance. During the arrest, he allegedly violently resisted Public Safety officers and struck one officer in the face. The officer was not injured and the boy sustained minor injuries. He was booked into Juvenile Hall for resisting arrest, resisting an officer with force and violence, being under the influence of a controlled substance, and battery on a police officer.
• Ryan Lawrence, a 31-year-old transient, was seen trying to get into a vehicle that did not belong to him at the Safeway on Commerce Boulevard. He was arrested for prowling and violating his probation.
• Pedro Tecum, of San Rafael, was stopped for a vehicle code violation and arrested for driving without a license.
• Benjamin Fox, 35, of Santa Rosa, was stopped for a vehicle code violation. He had two juvenile girls in the car with him and he showed signs of being under the influence of prescription medications. He was arrested for DUI and child endangerment; the girls were unharmed.
• Gustavo Martin, 34, of Rohnert Park, was stopped for a traffic violation at the Rohnert Park car wash on Classic Court. A records check showed he was on Sonoma County probation with search. During a search of his vehicle, two grams of suspected methamphetamine, a scale, cash and a pipe for smoking methamphetamine were found. Martin was arrested for transporting methamphetamine, possessing methamphetamine with the intent to sell it, driving without an ignition interlock device, violation of probation, and possession of drug paraphernalia. During that investigation, Kayla Rom of Healdsburg and Tonya Bertucci of Clearlake Oaks were found on the car wash property. Some of the coin operated machines had been broken into and the coins had been stolen. Authorities believed that Martin, Rom, and Bertucci committed the thefts prior to the traffic stop. Based on their statements, it is likely they moved the coins prior to being contacted. Rom was arrested for prowling and possession of a methamphetamine pipe.
