It appears Martinez police, working with as-yet unnamed federal agencies, served a search warrant early this morning in the 2300 block of Wayne Street in their city.
At this stage we don’t know the nature of their investigation but it appears diversionary “flashbang” devices were utilized.
“So, if you were awakened by loud bangs,” MPD put out in a short Twitter message this morning, “… that was us.”
Police would say only that the search warrant was the culmination of a recent investigation and that several people, apparently, were arrested and taken to jail.
It looks like they arrested everyone on that block!!! Did all those people come out of one location?
Drugs or car theft?
Are you sure they’re not lining up for morning coffee?
Tall fences make good neighbors. An armored car knocks down tall fences.
What time was this?
Not sure, yet, Adam…
I remember reading (on this site) that a pipe bomb was discovered on Wayne St. in Martinez. Reported 8/27/19.
Looks more like Fallujah than Martinez.
