Boxer-type dog sought after West Sac bite

NEWS-LEDGER ONLINE — JAN 14, 2014 —

The Yolo County Sheriff’s Department Animal Services Section is looking for a dog and its owner after a biting incident Friday morning at a West Sacramento dog park. Finding the dog can help prevent the victim from having to undergo rabies exposure treatment.

The incident happened about 11 a.m. on Jan. 10 at the Sam Combs Park’s dog run.  According to the Animal Services Section:

“An adult male was in the Sam Combs dog park, 205 Stone Boulevard, and was attempting to break up a dog fight that started when the dogs were playing at that location, when the victim was bitten by the dog that began fighting with (the victim’s) dog.”

The bite victim describes the biting dog as a medium size brown or “brindle” boxer with a “New York Giants” collar and tags. That dog’s owner was described as a white male, about 5’9″ tall, with a thin build. The man was wearing glasses and had a New York-type accent.

Anyone with information is asked to call (530) 668-5287, or email animal.bite@yolocounty.org.

Target of search now in jail

FROM THE NEWS-LEDGER — JULY 24, 2013 —

Last week, the News-Ledger reported on an incident that brought the SWAT team and residential evacuations to an area of Holly Street in West Sacramento. Police were looking for 30-year old William John Ybarra, an ex-felon wanted for allegedly making “criminal threats.”

They didn’t find him during that July 15 event.

But a West Sacramento police arrest report indicates Ybarra was picked up during a local traffic stop two days later, and “booked into Yolo County Jail for his outstanding warrant.”

The arrest report also added a little more detail to the earlier incident in which police unsuccessfully searched Ybarra’s home at 2250 Holly Street:

“During a search of the residence, the sounds of a ‘shotgun racking’ came from the basement area,” reported an officer. “Additionally, one shotgun round was located within the residence.”

As a felon, Ybarra was not allowed to possess guns or ammunition, noted the officer.

The West Sacramento Police Department just announced an operation this morning in which about a dozen warrants were served — all but one of them in West Sacramento — after an investigation into a string of vehicle and residential burglaries in town.

Lieutenant David Delaini of the West Sacramento Police Department said about $20,000 in illegal drugs — including methamphetamine and marijuana — were seized, along with cash, an assault rifle and other guns.

“Any time we take guns off the street and drugs off the street, that’s a victory for us,” Delaini told a press conference at about noon today. “You can see the weapons with lights (mounted) on them and you seem some stabbing weapons,” he said, referring to a table of seized items spread out for the press.

A department press release described the operation:

“The California Department of Justice, Yolo Narcotic Enforcement Team (YONET) and The West Sacramento Police Department conducted a collaborative investigation into a burglary ring, stemming from over 80 residential burglaries and 51 vehicle burglaries from December 2012 to present.   These burglaries extended throughout the city and outlying regions.  One state arrest warrant and 12 state search warrants were executed today in an attempt to recover stolen property.”

“The investigation has resulted in 13 arrests, three assault rifles, four handguns, (several of which had been stolen), an active honey oil lab (used to create marijuana extract) , five pounds of marijuana, a quarter pound methamphetamine, ammunition, and body armor.  Additionally, three locations contained children who were removed by CPS due to their access and proximity to the firearms and drugs.  Everyone arrested will be booked into the Yolo County Jail and juvenile hall.”

“The operation in West Sacramento was named ‘Operation Red Bandits’ because the members of this burglary ring have been identified as active members of the Norteno criminal street gang,” said police.

[adrotate group=”9″]  The operation aimed for young perpetrators responsible for robberies, home burglaries, carjackings, and shootings in and around the Sacramento region.

“These gang members and associates have supported their gang life style through illegal sales of methamphetamine and marijuana, as well as stolen property,” said the police press release. “These street level gang members have been identified and range in age from 16-20 years old.”

Those arrested face charges including possession of narcotics, narcotics sales and distribution, conspiracy, property crimes (burglaries, possession of stolen property), and violent crimes against persons (such as robberies, carjackings, and firearms charges.

Carjacking & robbery: one arrest

NEWS-LEDGER — JAN 2, 2013 —

By Steve Marschke
News-Ledger Editor

A pair of gunmen created a commotion in central West Sacramento early Saturday morning, pistol-whipping one victim and stealing a car from another.

At roughly 4 a.m., the first of the two crimes was reported.

“Basically, we had a victim saying someone pulled a gun on him and pistol-whipped him,” Lieutenant Tod Sockman of the West Sacramento Police Department told the News-Ledger. “He had some injuries, and was treated at the scene.”

The same two suspects appear to have then committed a second crime nearby – somewhere in the area of Proctor Avenue, said Sockman.

[adrotate group=”7″]   “A short time later, (police) heard of a car-jacking, just a couple blocks away,” he said. “The car was found a couple blocks away from where it was carjacked.”

Officers responded, looking for the two men who were now on foot again.

“The sergeant saw one of the suspects walking over near Proctor, and chased him and arrested him,” said Sockman. “The other kept fleeing.”

One citizen on Longcroft Street said police knocked on his door at about 4:30 a.m. and searched his backyard with a police dog. The second suspect wasn’t located.

“It’s the same guys who did the pistol-whipping and the carjacking,” Sockman said.
