Colusa Police Department Monthly Report – April 2020

The City of Colusa Police Department responded to 262 calls for service, down from 293 in March, and 21 additional calls assisting other agencies, down from 37. There were 37 Documented Case Investigations, down from 52 the previous month. There were a total of 10 arrests, down from 17, including two DUI and several burglary/robbery arrests. The remainder were drug related offences and violation of court orders.

Traffic Citations (26); Parking citations (2); Vehicle accidents (1); Hit and Run (1).

A major case investigation for April was the daytime burglary which occurred at Kittle’s Outdoor & Sport Co. Dejon Stewart, 18, of Colusa, is accused of reaching over the gun display case and stealing a handgun. Stewart was arrested after a search warrant was served at his home. The handgun was never recovered, officials said.

Another major case investigation is the murder of Giovanni Alcaraz, 19, of Williams. Christian Suarez has been identified as the suspect in the murder and his whereabouts is currently unknown. The U.S. Marshals Office and the District Attorney is assisting in the investigation, according to Colusa Chief of Police Josh Fitch.

Fitch said it should be noted that CPD arrests have been down, but citations have increased as a result of efforts to slow or stop the spread of COVID-19 in the jail.
