Local News

An  18  year-old  man  was  arrested  in  Santa  Cruz  this  afternoon,   in  connection  with  a  report  of  a  domestic  disturbance on Pearl Street.      During  a  pat-down  of  Norberto  Gonzales,   Santa Cruz  police  officers  discovered  a  loaded  .22  caliber  revolver.     Gonzales  was  booked  into  Santa  Cruz  County  Jail  (for  carrying  a  concealed  weapon,   and  resisting  arrest). 

The  Medical  Board  Of  California  has  suspended  a  Santa  Cruz  brain  surgeon’s  medical license.      Doctor  James  Kohut’s  medical  licenses  were  already  suspended  in  Alabama  and  Arkansas.      Kohut  pleaded not  guilty  yesterday  to  11  felony  charges  of  sexually  abusing  children.   The  Santa  Cruz  county  judge  hearing the case decided  yesterday  that  Kohut  will  be  allowed  to  post  bail  after  his  Bail  Hearing  (which is scheduled  to  take  place June  28th).

An  11  year-old  girl  was  left   behind  on  a  Monterey  School  Bus  yesterday,   when  the  bus  was  parked  for  the  school  day.       Bella,  who  has  autism,  was  picked  up  for  school,  but not delivered  to  her  classroom.      Instead,  the  bus  driver  (who  has  been  placed  on  administrative  leave)  failed  to  properly  perform  the  mandatory  sweep  of  the  bus before  parking  it  for  the  day,  and  the  aide  (who  was  busy  with  another  student  who  needed  extra  assistance  yesterday)  failed  to  make  sure  that  Bella  got to  class.      More  than  2  hours  later,   Bella  was  found  curled  up  in  the  back  of  the  bus.    

A  19  year-old  Aptos  man  was  arrested  after  he  was  found  with  an  open  container  of  alcohol  and  drugs  in  his  car.    When  Trevor  Maddy  was  17,   he   was  driving  an  S-U-V  when  it  hit  a  25  year-old  Aptos  woman  (paralyzing  her  from  the  chest  down).    Maddy,  who initially  drove  away  from  the  scene,  admitted  to  officers  that  he  had  been  smoking  weed,  and  was  drunk  at the  time  of  the  accident.    It remains  to  be  seen  what  will  happen  with  the  new  charges  against  Maddy,  since  it is  illegal  for  anyone  under  the  age of  21  to  drive  with  any  alcohol  in  their  system.   

Active  Shooter  Training  was  held  at  U-C-S-C  today.     It  was  the  5th  consecutive  year  law  enforcement  officers  (and  firefighters)  could  prepare  for  a worst-case  scenario.   First Responders  not  only  trained  for  having a  shooter  on  a  campus,  but  for how to  help  wounded  people  in  such  a scenario.  

 (09:50) Authorities reported that 3 people are injured after a head on collision on Saturday.   The crash took place at 10:30 p.m. on Graham Hill Road in Felton.  48 year-old Todd Russo, of San Francisco, was driving under the influence of alcohol when he crossed over the double yellow lines and crashed head on with a Mazda.  The driver of the Mazda was transported to the hospital and is in critical condition; the passenger was treated for moderate injuries.  Russo sustained major injuries and was airlifted to Dominican Hospital.  The collision is currently under investigation. 

(08:40) Capitola - A man was taken into custody after he robbed a gas station in Capitola.   The incident took place yesterday morning at 3:45 at the Shell Gas Station on 41st Avenue.  The suspect reportedly brandished a knife at the clerk, demanded money and then fled on foot from the business.  Officers located the suspect, Jesus Palafox, on 38th Avenue at Capitola Road, after searching the area for an hour.  A knife and cash were recovered during the arrest.  Palafox was booked in Santa Cruz County Jail. 

 

(08:25) Santa Cruz - Agents with the Santa Cruz County Anti-Crime Team’s Gang Task Force arrested a man for carrying a loaded gun and possession of a controlled substance on Friday.  Agents spotted a vehicle in downtown Santa Cruz, near Front Street, with tail lights blacked out and tinted windows.  Inside the vehicle agents found 30-year-old Francisco Garcia in possession of 27.5 grams of heroin and loaded firearm.  Garcia was booked into Santa Cruz County Jail.
