APD arrests suspect from Alameda

Alameda police officer Russell Wise was involved in a hit-and-run accident last Tuesday, May 3, that left him injured and needing medical assistance.

 

The Alameda Police Department (APD) and several other Alameda County law enforcement agencies conducted a prostitution sting that led to 11 arrests in Alameda last Thursday, April 28.

The officers used websites, such as Backpage.com, to engage with prostitute handlers. They lured them to a hotel thinking they were conducting a business transaction. 

“We had one officer pose as an undercover John,” said APD Lt. Hoshmand Durani. “Once money was handed over to the handlers we went in to make arrests.”

Alameda Police Department (APD) needs the community’s assistance identifying three suspects who have burglarized a business at South Shore Center several times. Police described the suspects, pictured above, as being in their late teens to early 20s. APD asks anyone with information is asked to contact the Property Crimes Unit at 337-8340.

 

In the early morning hours of Sept. 28, 2014, officers from the Alameda Police Department (APD) arrested Stephen Petersen and charged him with arson. APD suspected Petersen of having a role in setting a series of arson fires that plagued the city earlier in that same evening. The Alameda County District Attorney dropped all charges against Petersen on Oct. 31, 2014.
