San Leandro police recovered guns from armed suspects in two separate incidents Saturday, a police official said today.
In the first incident, San Leandro officers conducted a traffic stop at Bancroft and 109th avenues in Oakland around 1:35 a.m., police said.
The suspect fled on foot, and threw a loaded handgun on the ground as officers gave chase.
The suspect was taken into custody after a struggle involving the use of a police dog that resulted in minor injuries to an officer and moderate injuries to the suspect, police said.
The handgun was recovered, police said.
Around 2:17 a.m., a police sergeant contacted a parked vehicle at the San Leandro Marina occupied by two subjects.
As the sergeant approached the passenger side, he saw a suspect inside loading a handgun, according to police.
As support arrived, the sergeant was able to detain the suspect and driver. The passenger was arrested on suspicion of possession of a stolen weapon, police said.
Suspects in both incidents were Oakland residents, according to police.
