Theft Investigation Results in Recovering Stolen Property and Gang-Related Arrest

The Williams Police Department launched an investigation Thursday after a report of a stolen vehicle and other personal items including bank cards.

The investigation revealed that the bank cards had been used at multiple locations in the Yuba City and Marysville areas.

After learning of a possible suspect, officers began actively searching for the individual identified as 27-year-old Daniel Ramirez of Williams. Officers conducted a probation search at Ramirez’s residence and located multiple items of property that matched the description of items purchased with the victim’s bank cards. Additionally, officers found a controlled substance paraphernalia and a small amount of marijuana.

At the time of probation search, Ramirez was not located, and officers continued their search.

On February 7, 2016, at approximately 3:45 PM, officers made contact with a vehicle driven by 21-year-old Geovanny Mejia, Williams. During the contact with Mejia, police discovered Ramirez hiding in the rear floorboard of the vehicle.

Officers arrested Ramirez, without incident.

Mejia was found to be under the influence of a controlled substance and was arrested without incident.

Officers searched the vehicle where Ramirez was found and located a small-caliber semi-automatic handgun with the serial number obliterated. During the search of the driver’s area of the vehicle, ammunition for the gun was found, as well as a small amount of marijuana.

Officers booked Ramirez into the Colusa County Jail for being a felon in possession of a concealed firearm, for receiving known stolen property, for being in possession of a concealed firearm during active participation in a criminal street gang, for violating the terms and conditions of his felony probation, for having a concealed firearm in a vehicle, and for possessing a firearm with an obliterated serial number. Mejia was booked into the Colusa County Jail for driving while under the influence of a controlled substance, possession of less than one ounce of marijuana while driving, and for violating a court order.

The investigation is ongoing, and anyone with additional information is urged to contact the Williams Police Department at (530) 473-2661.
