Suspects Arrested on Drug and Gun Charges After Leaving Infant Alone in Car During Alleged Theft at Home Depot

Two suspects were apprehended by the Hercules Police Department on Monday after allegedly leaving an infant unattended inside a vehicle during an attempted theft at a Home Depot store. The incident took place at approximately 4:24 p.m. when officers responded to a report of a theft in progress at the Home Depot located at 1625 Sycamore Avenue.

Upon arrival, Hercules police observed the two suspects exiting the store and approaching a Chevy Cruze parked in a handicap space. The vehicle’s engine was running, and to their dismay, officers discovered an infant alone in a car seat inside the car. One of the suspects was already on felony probation for a robbery, prompting the officers to conduct a probation search of the vehicle.

During the search, law enforcement officials uncovered significant quantities of marijuana, packaged for sale, as well as bottles of promethazine without prescription labels. The Hercules Police Department promptly summoned a family member to the scene to take custody of the infant.

Further investigation led the police to conduct a probation search at one of the suspects’ residences in Hercules. This search yielded additional marijuana, an unregistered Micro Draco firearm, and an unregistered pistol.

Both suspects were subsequently arrested and booked into the Martinez Detention Facility on various charges related to firearms and marijuana possession.
