Fremont Police Make Several Weekend Arrests

FREMONT – Fremont Police made several arrests this weekend on drug offenses, plus charges of false reporting and obstruction.

Saturday afternoon around 3PM, police responded to a trespassing complaint at a business in the 1100 block of west 23rd Street.  Officers were called to the business to check on the sleeping occupants of a vehicle.  Officers had contact with a male party who gave them consent to search his vehicle and his person.  Inside of a pack of cigarettes, officers found cellophane baggies containing a powdery substance consistent with methamphetamine.  A glass pipe used to smoke methamphetamine was also found in the car. As a result, Jacob L. Kohout, 34, of Fremont was arrested on suspicion of possession of a controlled substance (methamphetamine) and possession of drug paraphernalia.

A few hours later, at approximately 8:30PM Miguel Grave-Lopez, 37, of Fremont was arrested on suspicion of false reporting following a traffic stop in the 400 block of north Broad Street.  Grave-Lopez was the operator of a motor vehicle stopped for displaying expired license plates.  Grave-Lopez was unable to provide a driver’s license and provided the officer a false name and birth date.  Using a YMCA membership card, the officer was able to learn Grave-Lopez’s real name and that he had no valid license to drive.  Grave-Lopez was also charged with no operator’s license and no vehicle registration.

As Saturday evening gave way to the early Sunday morning hours, Fremont police responded to the scene of a reported fight at a business in the 2200 block of north Broad Street just after midnight.  Upon their arrival, officers were told that the people involved in that disturbance had left in a vehicle, and a description of the car was taken.

An officer on the way to the scene spotted a car matching that description, and performed a traffic stop in the area of 16th and Grant Streets.  Lillian D. Kinkade, 30, of Fremont was the driver of that vehicle, and the officer noted behavior consistent with the consumption of alcoholic beverages.  Kinkade was uncooperative and placed under arrest for obstructing a police officer, and was also charged with driving under the influence of alcohol and refusal to submit to a chemical test.
