Martinez Police Corporal Ryan Baillie and Reserve Officer Hue were working their beat at 12:49 a.m. on February 9 when they spotted a car driving in circles in the intersection of Pacheco Boulevard and Howe Road.
The officers did what police do and they contacted the driver, 22-year-old Concord resident Oscar Esparza-Cabello, arresting him for reckless driving. During a search of his vehicle the officers allegedly found a concealed 9mm pistol, a short-barreled, unregistered and illegal assault rifle and an illegal 40 round magazine.
Esparza-Cabello was arrested for multiple weapons violations, as well as for reckless driving. He was booked into the Martinez Detention Facility (MDF) on $190,000 bail.
