Guns Drawn At Trancas

Written by on August 12, 2019

L A county sheriffs deputies had guns drawn and shut down Trancas yesterday afternoon.  (Sunday)

It was a successful felony stop.

A stolen Honda Accord had been parked at Leo Carrillo Beach … its Lo jack went off … alerting deputies at about 5:15 Sunday afternoon.

They followed it into Malibu and tried to pull it over on PCH at Broad Beach Road West.

The driver kept going … eventually running into heavy beach traffic at Trancas.

He turned in to the gas station parking lot there.

Deputies commanded the driver out .. using loudspeakers.

That created  a bit of concern a the nearby market … and Starbucks … which had a big weekend crowd.

The driver at first did not comply with commands … prompting more and more instructions over the loudspeakers on sheriffs cars.

It ended well .. the driver under arrest for possessing a stolen car.
