On Tuesday, June 3,
2014 at 12:51 a.m., deputies responded to report of a suspicious vehicle parked
near the Taco Bell in the 7300 block of Boulder Ave, Highland. As deputies arrived, they found the vehicle,
a full size white panel van, parked near the closed business. A record's check showed the vehicle was
reported stolen out of Glendora. The
driver and sole occupant, David Silva,
was taken into custody without incident.
A search of Silva and
the vehicle uncovered an estimated 1/4 ounce of methamphetamine and indication
of drug sales, as well as several pieces of hydraulic lifesaving equipment
commonly used by fire department personnel, including "jaws of life"
and hydraulic metal spreaders. The investigation
is ongoing in an effort to locate the rightful owner of this equipment.
Silva, who was also
wanted on a $100,000 narcotics warrant, was booked into the Central Detention
Center with his bail set at $150,000.
