*****OFFICERS IN ACTION*****

On 10/15/21, Officers were alerted to a stolen vehicle driving on Fitzgerald Drive. Officers located the vehicle parked and unoccupied in a parking lot in the 1500 block of Fitzgerald Drive. Officers safely recovered the vehicle and conducted an inventory of the vehicle prior to towing it. During the inventory officers discovered a loaded semi-automatic pistol that did not have serial numbers, also known as a “Ghost Gun”. Officers also located several items and tools commonly used during thefts of catalytic converters. Officers were able to identify a suspect and learned the suspect had already fled the area. Follow-up is currently underway to locate the suspect. Another gun off the street!!! Great Job!

*****OFFICERS IN ACTION*****

On 9/29/21, Officers were dispatched to the 1500 block of Fitzgerald Drive for a report of a possible catalytic converter theft in progress. Officers, already in the area, arrived and located the suspect vehicle entering westbound highway 80 from Appian Way. Officers stopped the vehicle and were able to positively identify the occupants as the suspects who vandalized the victim’s vehicle as they attempted to steal the catalytic converter. Upon a search of the vehicle, a stolen catalytic converter was located along with the burglary tools commonly used to steal the converters. The two suspects were booked into jail for multiple charges including, tampering with a vehicle, possession of stolen property, vandalism, and conspiracy. Great work!

MEDIA RELEASE-FOR IMMEDIATE DISSEMINATION

DATE: September 27, 2021
CONTACT: Lieutenant Matt Avery
PHONE: 510-724-8962
SUBJECT: Former Pinole Police Officer Charged for Unlawful Recording of Sexual Encounter

On May 13, 2021, the Pinole Police Department received an email containing photographic evidence of an officer engaged in sexual acts on multiple occasions involving different women. The email identified the officer as Anthony Vasquez. The department contacted the sender of the email who asserted Mr. Vasquez sent the images and video via group chat and believed the women were not aware of the recordings. The Pinole Police Department contacted the Contra Costa District Attorney’s (CCDA) Office, and they opened a criminal investigation into Mr. Vasquez’s conduct. For more information on the criminal investigation, please contact the CCDA’s Office.

Mr. Vasquez was immediately placed on administrative leave and an outside, independent third party conducted an administrative investigation.

On June 28, 2021, Mr. Vasquez resigned from the Pinole Police Department.

“This type of conduct will not be tolerated, which is why we took immediate action as soon as we learned of the situation. I, as well as this entire department, deeply care about the community and our duty to protect and serve. We know behavior such as this can damage the trust and partnership between law enforcement and the community. The egregious behavior of one, does not reflect the hardworking women and men of the Pinole Police Department,” stated Chief Gang.

If anyone has any additional information, please contact the Contra Costa District Attorney’s Office Bureau of Investigations (925-957-2200).
