Burglary Affair Nets Three

A burglary suppression operation by Alameda Police Department (APD) detectives, with assistance from Alameda County Sherriff’s Transit Crime Unit (TCU) personnel, led to the arrest of three individuals and the confiscation of two loaded firearms on April 30. APD and TCU personnel conducted undercover operations in various locations in Alameda last Tuesday. 

The first arrest occurred around 3 p.m., according to a police report. Alameda County Sherriff Department Sgt. Robert Evans said police stopped a vehicle when they saw one of the passengers litter at the intersection of Fifth Street and Willie Stargell Avenue. “One of the other passengers was determined to have two warrants for his arrest,” wrote Evans in an email. 

The suspect is a minor. He was also in possession of hypodermic needles and confirmed stolen property from San Leandro Home Depot, according to APD Sgt. Wayland Gee. Because the suspect is a minor his court hearing date was withheld. The suspect was taken in by Alameda County Sheriff officers because of his two warrants. He is being held at Glenn Dyer Detention Facility in Oakland. 

Detectives then arrested Juwan Millington-Cox at 5:21 p.m. at the intersection of Willie Stargell and Coral Sea Street. Police personnel were stationed in a nearby neighborhood when they discovered another vehicle casing homes. Detectives approached the vehicle. When the occupants were contacted, Millington-Cox, a convicted felon, was found to be in possession of a loaded firearm.

Millington-Cox was arrested for multiple crimes including second-degree burglary, being a convicted felon in possession of a concealed weapon, possession of a loaded unregistered firearm and more. He is being held at Santa Rita Jail with no bail. He will have pretrial and parole revocation hearings on May 30 at Rene Davidson Alameda County Courthouse. 

The last arrest occurred at 7:56 p.m. on the 2400 block of South Shore Center. While in a shopping area detectives observed Deandre Robinson casing vehicles in the parking lot, according to a report on the APD Facebook page. Police eventually witnessed him break a car window. Officers quickly approached Robinson and after a brief chase, TCU stopped the vehicle and arrested Robinson. 

While searching the vehicle detectives discovered a loaded firearm and established the suspect was driving on a suspended license. Robinson has since been released from jail as of May 10, according to the Alameda County Inmate Locator.
