Suspicious vehicle investigation reveals trove of weapons and drugs.

Suspect identified:

Frank Deedywoo Garcia-Calloway, age 20, San Pablo, CA.

On February 26th, 2019 around 0919 in the morning, A Sergeant patrolling the rain soaked hills of Tamalpais Valley located a parked and unoccupied suspicious vehicle. While looking into the vehicle from the outside, the Sergeant could see a white substance visible in plain view that he believed to be a controlled substance (drugs). In addition, the handle of a firearm could be seen sticking out from under the seat of the vehicle.

Believing that the occupant of the vehicle could possibly be burglarizing residences, vehicles or on foot in the area, an area search by the Sergeant and other Deputies was completed. No one was located.

Members of the Sheriff’s Office developed a plan in an attempt to contact the owner of the vehicle who was from out of the area to get him to return to the vehicle. While working on this plan, the owner of the vehicle arrived and was detained for further investigation of the vehicle.

During a search of the vehicle the following was located: A Loaded 9mm Glock 19 under the driver seat with a high capacity magazine, AR-15 loaded with armor piercing rounds in a high capacity magazine and another box of around 100 armor piercing rounds, multiple bags of suspected cocaine, over an ounce of suspected heroin, approximately one pound of suspected marijuana, large amounts of US currency, a digital scale, a window punch tool, and multiple cell phones.
