Guns Drawn At Trancas
Written by 991KBU 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.
