2018 Arrest Report

In February 15, 2018, Officers Salcedo and Dedier Reyes detained two men and found a bag containing a handgun. One man was arrested.[1][3]

Detectives found that the officers' written reports were inconsistent with surveillance video, specifically in the manner in which the weapon was recovered. It was determined that the wrong man had been arrested, and he was later released without being charged.[1][3]

In January 2019, the department concluded their investigation, and forwarded it to the District Attorney's office.[1]
