Pleasanton police search recovers drugs, guns and body armor

Suspects arrested outside local hotel on weapons and drugs charges

A patrol check by Pleasanton police officers who observed a "suspicious vehicle" parked at a local hotel ended with two adults being arrested on drugs and weapons charges last Thursday.

Shortly before 1 p.m. on Aug. 6, detectives from the Pleasanton Police Department's Special Enforcement Unit "conducted a patrol check and observed a suspicious vehicle in the parking lot of Tri- Valley Inn and Suites on Santa Rita Road."

After making contact with two Livermore residents -- one male and one female; their names were not released -- who were near the vehicle and on active probation, detectives determined that the vehicle had been stolen from Oakland. A handgun, high capacity magazines, body armor and drugs were recovered during a search of the car.
