    Based on the information I found, this guy is the classic definition of a habitual criminal, namely someone who is repeatedly arrested for criminal behavior. He seriously needs to be locked up and throw away the key. He had priors in at least Tracey, Newark, Pleasonton, plus more.

    I would like to congratulate the Antioch PD for a job well done. This could have turned out soooooo much worse with a huge explosion.

    Thank you Chief and everyone!
