Night Shift Report 10/19/17 ~ #whileyouweresleeping 😴🚔🌛
It was another busy shift for our swing shift and graveyard officers!
At 2:41 AM, we stopped a suspicious vehicle on Enfrente Road. The driver of the vehicle, 25 year old Michael Felix of San Rafael, was wanted on two felony warrants out of Marin County for narcotics offenses. Felix, who is on probation was searched to determine if he was in compliance with the terms of his probation. Felix was found to be in possession of several grams of Methamphetamine, Marijuana, a substantial amount of cash and a scale. Inside Felix’s vehicle, officers located an imitation firearm in his backpack. During the investigation, Felix received a text message from 27 year old male who expressed interest in purchasing narcotics from him. Officers arranged for the man to come to their location for the purchase. When he arrived, he was detained in connection with this investigation. Felix was arrested and booked into the Marin County Jail for two outstanding felony arrest warrants as well as possession and sales of controlled substances.
Around that same time, we were asked to assist Santa Rosa Police and the California Highway Patrol with a vehicle pursuit that came into Novato city limits. To assist with safely ending the pursuit, we deployed Stop Sticks to puncture the tires on the suspect’s vehicle. Shortly thereafter, the driver, 33 year old Jose Rubio-Rivas leapt from the rolling vehicle and attempted to run. He was taken into custody after falling and sustaining a head injury. The vehicle came to a stop on Novato Boulevard at Wilson Avenue and caught fire. The driver was arrested by the Santa Rosa Police Department and the fire was extinguished.
At 4:08 AM, we received a request for assistance from Marin County Sheriff’s Office to assist with a structure fire in a residential area on McClay Road in the county’s jurisdiction. The reporting party heard explosions and the upper portion of the house was on fire. An 80 year old female resident was evacuated and Marin County Sheriff’s office took over the scene when they arrived.
