Code Enforcement:

In front of City Hall, Code Enforcement observed a male with a large baggy of marijuana. APD responded and attempted contact with subject who fled from them on foot. A perimeter was set up and a yard to yard search was conducted. Subject located hiding in a residence and taken into custody on a warrant and possession of marijuana.

504-506 West 5thStreet –there was a duplex fire on Friday, March 21st. On 3-26-14, CEO Souza received a call from property owner stating the tenant in #506 and her five children are refusing to leave and there is no a PGE service or hot water due to the electrical fire. Red Cross contacted and family in #506 set up in a local hotel.  Tenants in #504 re-located. Duplex red-tagged as sub-standard until fire repairs are made.

  1. I wish Mr Duran would go look at the grand opening of the latest Cig/.sex shop in Antioch. It is huge. On Somersville across from the tanning shop. Bad people are mingling and smoking. Bad hand out place.

  2. 5 kids in a burned out house with no utilities, and our overlords worry about me driving without a seatbelt.

    • How about you keep that belt on & you save the tax payers polices time.
