West Sacramento (CBS13) —Police say the drone helped safely find a suspect with a pistol on a person’s head in West Sacramento over the weekend.
The incident happened on Saturday afternoon. West Sacramento police say police have responded to the area of Drever Street to investigate the first armed robbery.
Police officers say the victim told them that the suspect had pressed what looked like a black pistol on his head. The victim also reported that the suspect’s behavior appeared to be unstable – he probably shot at the police when he faced it.
The area was then searched using a drone from an unmanned aerial vehicle system, and the suspect was eventually found under the bridge.
With the help of the crisis negotiation team, the suspect surrendered peacefully.
Police say they found a black BB gun and live ammunition in the area. Police have not found the second weapon that the victim reported to have seen first.
The suspect is held in Yolo County Prison and is accused of robbery, criminal intimidation, and felony possession of ammunition.
