Two EPA gang members arrested by police team

 

Two members of the Taliban street gang were arrested this week by a newly formed street crimes unit composed of East Palo Alto and Menlo Park officers, according to East Palo Alto Detective Ed Soares.

Danny Darnell Coleman of East Palo Alto was arrested after a short foot pursuit in Menlo Park. He was charged with having a concealed weapon, being a member of a street gang with a firearm, a gang enhancement charge and resisting arrest.

Jason Reese, another Taliban gang member, was arrested with Coleman and charged with a parole violation, Soares said.

The police team also arrested two Pacific-Islander men, whose names were not available, for having two guns, including a loaded Uzi machine gun with 300 rounds of ammunition. The two also had scales for weighing drugs and night-vision goggles. Packaged narcotics for sale were also seized in the arrest, which occurred in the 1100 block of Saratoga Avenue in East Palo Alto.

The strike team, which began work Dec. 16, includes a sergeant and three detectives from the two police departments.

From the description of the guns, drugs, etc. recovered, these were big-time bad guys. Thank you EPA & MP Strike Team, great work!
