An observant police officer ??? The whole neighborhood already knows that there is drug deals over there for several years now. Several neighbors already reported to the police about the drug dealing over there for several years. And I do recall , as I complained about this, the PLeasanton PD told me . "They cannot do anything about it because everytime the police car comes, they scatter." School kids goes there and buy drugs. I won't be surprised that drug dealing has not STOP there. And this is JUST ONE of the ones that we complained about. There are several others too that are close to schools. Another one is close to Amador. The other one is over at DEL PRADO apartments. There is another one over at Sonoma drive, that is close to Pleasanton Middle Schools.
I am surprsied that they had finally a drug bust after what ? 5-7 years ???

I must be dumb ,but I have read this story a couple of times and have yet to figure out what a "non-narcotic controlled substance" is. I am sure most people know,but I don't and neither does my husband. Maybe it is because we are to old to figure it out.

Regarding Case# 2010-00056776
Harlan has filed a civil claim against Fidelity Insurance and will file a claim against the Police Department once the civil action is complete. Turns out that in 2009 he filed a complaint with the Police department about two (2) of their Officers that live on his block for obsessive vulgarity while watching sporting events in the garage. He was concerned because he has two young daughters and very young son. Harlan even provided video of their behavior since he himself couldn't convince the Officers to stop the language and the HOA couldn't get them to stop... Harlan received an apology letter from Sgt. Collins of the Pleasanton police department but it still hasn't stopped the behavior. There is a video on youtube... Turns out that one of the Officers Harlan complained about was the first Officer to respond to his house when Harlan called the Police for help with the Fidelity adjuster because she stabbed him with a pen when he tried to get her to leave. Rather than arrest the female who assaulted the male as it was dispatched, the Officer arrested Harlan. Harlan graduated from the Evergreen Police academy in 1995 and had been working as a PI for the past 17 years. Harlan has already secured evidence and is eagerly awaiting his opportunity to hold Fidelity and the Police Officers accountable for their actions.

First and foremost this page asks to "please be respectful and truthful in your postings." Does this apply to the editor that published this article about a couple of people being arrested????? They should get all of the facts of what happened before posting themselves. This article could very well be published with SLANDER and LIES. Why do people publish without knowing the TRUTH first!!! Unfortunately people , we do not live in a society of " INNOCENT until proven guilty" but quite the opposite> "guilty until proven INNOCENT"

We all know that the valley is pretty small but at the same time news travels just as fast as the newspapers. When this incident occured I had heard from a very close source that the officers did ask permission to search jeffcoats vehicle and that he in fact denied. Given that he was not on any kind of probation or parole, he exercised his rights to deny a search but the officers searched his vehicle anyway. Clearly violating his rights. More and more we hear about police officers who clearly violate peoples rights. Who do they have to answer to and what laws do they follow when their job is to enforce law???? Their own!?!?.................WOW

Look... you can erase my posts, you can try and silence the truth... Mr. Jeffcoat is just another victim of police brutality. Blatant violations of his rights and abuse of trust and power entitled to "peace officers" hired to "protect and serve..." Yeah right... Get a job! If it doesnt fit... you MUST AQUIT!

well people of the tri-valley community......this is CHRISTIAN MORRISON JEFFCOAT, and i have been commenting on this article about my arrest for some time . the truth is this case was dismissed for illegal search and seizure. the police did ask to search my vehicle but i denied their search, which could have been referenced on their dash cams by me explaining my right to deny a search because i was not on probation or parole. the police said," we know, we know. We are just going to detain you for now" then put me in a patrol car way in the back and searched my car anyways.
Originally officer Fountain said she saw two suspects walking back and forth from my car back to theirs. LIE. the other party not even once walked to my car which can also be referenced by the Raley's parking lot survailence camera's. Also officer Fountain completely left out of the police report and editor of this article that the other gentleman walked into Raley's and that Ms.fountain followed him inside. Shortly after officer Fountain came out of Raley's alone and then proceded to drive her patrol car over to me and my girlfriends car and proceeded to harass. What did officer Fountain and that gentleman talk about inside? it mentions him as a suspect in this case, so......why did officer Fountain not detain him ?? I was parked over by the Taco Bell (which was still open) talking on my cell phone when another police officer approached my vehicle and asked what i was doing. I explained i was going to get food. And that ladies and gentleman is the truth as to how all of this started.
The D.A. dropped the case in the end. So the lesson of today is that even police have to abide by certain laws and ethics on how they aquire their evidence in a case or it can and will be dropped. So people KNOW YOUR RIGHTS. even the police will take advantage of you if you let them.

But the question is..... are you... have you ever been guilty of this?? You are and have been guilty of SO MANY illegal things... it is a wonder you are still alive. You have no conscious and go on doing things that you justify, like the above, without dealing with the truth. What is your legacy, my friend. Think about what you will leave in the minds of the ones who once loved you......
Go on. Keep defending yourself. It doesn't change who one really is.

Nice work, Einstein.
This is from the Stockton Record:
Christian Morrison Jeffcoat, 36, and Crystal Marie Brush, 26, were arrested on suspicion of grand theft after a resident in the 16200 block of West Schulte Road reported catching Jeffcoat stealing items from a barn about 8:51 a.m. Saturday. Deputies reported that classic comic books, baseball cards, several tools and an air compressor had been taken from the barn. Jeffcoat reportedly denied taking them. Deputies reported that shoe prints matching Jeffcoat's shoes were found inside the barn. Deputies found Brush waiting nearby in Jeffcoat's vehicle.
