Alleged gang member arrested after bringing gun into Wendy's

 

A suspected gang member was arrested Wednesday afternoon after bringing a concealed gun into a Wendy's restaurant in Walnut Creek, police said.

Officers responded at 3:51 p.m. Wednesday to a report of a man with a gun inside the Wendy's at 2955 N. Main St. in Walnut Creek, police said.

Police closed North Main Street between Treat Boulevard and Sunnyvale Avenue during their investigation as a safety precaution.

Officers arrested 20-year-old Mauricio Eric Cervantes, of Walnut Creek, on suspicion of being a gang member with a concealed firearm, police said.

He was booked at the Martinez Detention Facility, where he is being held on $120,000 bail.

No injuries were reported in connection with the incident.

Too bad our gutless excuses for leaders won't mandate that anti-terrorism laws be enforced against gangs. They certainly fit every definition of "terrorist organization".
Of course, rounding up bangers wouldn't be as lucrative for the military-industrial war profiteers as the perpetual phony war on terror.

Well said Derek. I never have quite understood why it is we even tolerate gangs...period?! They contribute absolutely nothing to our society, except crime. Anybody?

We need serious penalties for gang activity. Put them in a jail that does not include weight lifting equipment and other perks. In a cell with lousy food. Deport anyone who isn't here legally. Get serious, it's getting out of control.

Was the "alleged" criminal a legal resident? Don't know if they would mention either way in the article...

Dear LMP...It is out of control and it's going to get worse unless the gutless respond.

Thank you for listening, Julia Pardini from Alamo
