“Fill ‘Er Up… We Mean, Hands Up!” Lafayette PD Arrest Stolen Car Suspect While He’s Getting Gas Sunday


A trip past the neighborhood gas station turned into a bit of a real-life crime episode Sunday after NEWS24/680 reader Pamela Dunn happened upon this scene at the 76 Station off Mt. Diablo Blvd. in Lafayette.

Turns out a passing Honda Civic triggered the town’s all-catching license plate readers and the city’s finest were vectored in to make the stop at 76 while the operator found himself the object of unwanted police attention and his two passengers were detained.

Lance Adams, who gave an address in Humboldt County, was arrested on charges including possession of a stolen vehicle, addict in possession of a firearm, possession of burglary tools, being unlicensed, and a probation violation.
