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.”
