According to Antioch Police Department PIO Darryl Saffold, on Monday, August 1, 2022, Officer Marcotte was conducting extra patrol in Sycamore Square when he observed a male subject enter JJ’s Fish and Chicken in the Sycamore Square shopping center at 1100 Sycamore Drive with a satchel. A short time later another male, 26-year-old Rodney Toriano Green, walked in the same store without a satchel on but exited with the same satchel Marcotte had seen earlier.

Officer Marcotte contacted Green and during a search found a loaded pistol in the satchel. The pistol was determined to have been stolen out of Las Vegas. Green was arrested for 25850 PC, having a loaded firearm in a public place and 25400 PC, carrying a concealed firearm. He was later booked and transported to the Martinez Detention Facility.

The first subject fled the area on foot and his ID is unknown at this time.

UPDATE: In the first ever release of an Antioch Police Officer body cam video the department posted footage of the arrest on their Facebook page on Tuesday, Aug. 2.
