Hazardous Materials Incident - Diablo Plaza

Earlier today (Wednesday, 12/27/23), at approximately 11:00 am, San Ramon Police Department Officers responded to the parking lot of 2505 San Ramon Valley Blvd in response to reports of an individual who appeared to be passed out inside a vehicle. While contacting the individual, suspected narcotics were observed, and the occupants were detained. During a subsequent search of the vehicle, Officers located additional suspected narcotics and a loaded firearm without a serial number (ghost gun).

The two officers who were conducting the vehicle search began to feel the effects of what was suspected to be fentanyl in the suspect's vehicle. Both officers were transported to the San Ramon Regional Medical Center for precautionary reasons due to their elevated heart rates, dizziness, and weakness. They are listed in stable condition and are being monitored by medical personnel.

The two suspects, a 19-year-old male from Vacaville and a 27-year-old female from Cottonwood, were arrested for multiple charges, including possession of narcotics, possession of a loaded firearm without a serial number, and possession of drug paraphernalia. Both were booked into the Martinez Detention Facility.

For a few hours, the parking lot surrounding the vehicle was closed to the public while San Ramon Valley Fire Protection District's Hazardous Materials Response Team members decontaminated the vehicle and the surrounding area. The parking lot has been reopened, and we thank you for your patience while our public safety partners worked to ensure it was again safe for the San Ramon Community.
