Guns Criminals Actually Use: 12AUG17 Edition


From the Local PD’s Facebook page: 

PRIOR CONVICTED FELON WHO REFUSED TO STOP FOR OFFICERS FOUND IN POSSESSION OF A LOADED HANDGUN

On Friday, August 4, 2017, just after 5 pm, Southwest District Patrol Officers Vince Bantayan and Nicolas Romero were working together in the area of Ventura Avenue and H Street, when they noticed a blue Mercedes Benz with an expired registration. As the officers initiated a traffic stop by activating their emergency lights, the solo occupant continued driving and made no attempt to pull over. For safety reasons, the officers continued to follow the vehicle with their lights and siren off as it continued toward the Chinatown area. Eventually, the car abruptly stopped in front of Dick’s Men’s Wear & Shoes at 1526 Kern Street. The driver quickly exited, ran, and attempted to enter the business. 

Although the business was closed, an employee was present and renovating inside. The driver, who was holding a cell phone to his ear, forcefully grabbed the front door that was locked and demanded for the employee to open it. The driver also kept his back to the officers, which caused them great concern for their safety. It was during this time the driver turned and faced the officers, exposing a nine millimeter semi-automatic handgun in his waistband. To prevent the situation from escalating, the officers maintained their distance and requested the driver to surrender peacefully. Eventually, sufficient officers arrived at the location to assist in placing the driver into custody without the use of any force.

The driver was identified as 33-year-old Fresno resident Nicholas Delt, who has an extensive criminal history. He was arrested and booked for possession of a loaded firearm and ammunition by a prior convicted felon. 

Yet another convicted felon in possession. I’m seeing a trend here…

Let’s sum up:

  • Felon in possession (felony)
  • Possession of a “high capacity” magazine in California (wobbler, likely a felony due to “extensive” criminal history)

Any bets that Prop 47, Prop57, or AB109 is responsible for this dude being on the street?
