It was a busy night for San Juan Capistrano-based deputies Thursday, catching several suspected felons accused of drug use and receiving stolen property, as well as gang members accused of violating the local gang injunction.
The first arrests came at around 7:30 p.m., said Lt. John Meyer, chief of police services in San Juan. Deputies noticed a suspicious person in a 2003 Ford truck near Del Obispo and Alipaz streets.
Turns out two men were allegedly smoking methamphetamine, Meyer said. Booked on suspicion of violating felony drug laws were Francisco Bolano-Soriano, 21, and Alfonso Liborio-Clara, 22. No bail amount was set.
Two hours later, deputies were dispatched to an alarm coming from a business on Camino Capistrano, south of Stonehill Drive, Meyer said.
“As they were checking the rear of the business, they contacted and detained a male subject,” Meyer said. Terry Svien, 53, had “no-bail” warrants out for his arrest in connection with felony charges of drug possession, receiving stolen property and civil contempt.
Finally, at 2:45 a.m. today, deputies patrolled the Capistrano Villas specifically for gang activity and found two known gang members allegedly associating with each other, in violation of the city’s gang injunction, Meyer said.
Michael Zazueta, 22, and Francisco Acevedo, 22.were arrested and booked. These suspected crimes are misdemeanors.
