Once again PPD , working in conjunction with LPD, follow through and arrest an attempted murderer. Great job ladies and gentlemen! I hope the people of Pleasanton realize this level of professionalism is not the " norm " in law enforcement and we have the best and most proactive force in the state....PPD earns every penny we pay them!

"It was just a tip that we got. We acted on the tip and it turned out to be reliable,"

This is how you define "proactive"?

Mike, please do some research before you speak...your embarrassing yourself. If you would open you're eyes you may realize the reason this arrest was made we she outstanding investigation which took place at the scene by responding highly trained Officers, followed up by incredible teamwork between Divisions within the PD and LPD. The evidence collection and interviewing of witnesses, coupled with and continuall effort to follow up on leads lead to this arrest.

Perhaps a ride a long should be in your future.

....yet no mention anywhere of the son of local "power celebrities " sons arrest for robbery before Thanksgiving. Must be nice to have money to keep stories buried.
