SMPD Arrests Two for Stolen Vehicle, Guns, 30 Pounds of Pot

San Marino Police Officers participated in the arrest of two Alhambra residents during the early morning hours of Sunday, March 27, according to Sgt. Tim Tebbetts.

The two suspects – Anthony Cahill, 24, and Annabel Rodriguez, 26 – were booked on a litany of charges that include possession of loaded firearm, possession of a controlled substance while armed, transportation of marijuana, false report of a crime, dirk and dagger, possession of burglary tools, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of methamphetamine, possession of marijuana with intent to sell, obstruction of justice resisting arrest and delay of arrest.

Cahill and Rodriguez were processed at the Alhambra Jail.

The event began at approximately 2:35 a.m., when a San Marino Police Officer noticed a silver Honda Civic turn into the parking lot of 1110 Huntington Drive. Knowing the business to be closed at that hour, the officer checked on the suspicious vehicle and located it in the rear parking lot of 980 Huntington Drive.

As officers attempted to make contact, a male, Cahill exited the silver Honda and fled on foot. Officers detained the driver of the gold Honda, who was later identified as Rodriguez.

Upon further investigation, it was discovered the silver Honda was stolen out of LAPD Hollenbeck Division on March 7. Inside the vehicle officers located several tools, property not belonging to Cahill, and a dagger that was hidden inside the interior roof.

Inside the gold Honda Civic, officers discovered a loaded, unregistered, 9mm firearm with two high capacity magazines, a police style collapsible baton, a duffle bag containing thirty pounds of marijuana, methamphetamines and other drug paraphernalia. Parts from the stolen silver Honda were also discovered on Rodriguez’s vehicle.

Officers from the San Gabriel and Alhambra PDs assisted in the search for Cahill, who was subsequently located and arrested by Alhambra Police in their city.

The case is considered ongoing. Anyone with additional information is asked to contact Detective Garcia at (626) 300-0726.
