Petaluma police said Friday that they have arrested a man who was allegedly in possession of an illegal knife and narcotics without a prescription.
Gabriel Alcantara, 34, got out of his vehicle after stopping close to Martin Circle and East Washington Street, according to Petaluma police Sgt. Ron Klein.
A police officer approached him and learned he was on probation and carrying a concealed fixed bladed knife, Klein said.
The officer searched Alcantara’s vehicle and found multiple prescription medications that Alcantara did not have a prescription for, Klein said.
The officer found an additional weapon, a small wooden bat with sharp nail-like objects attached to it with a bicycle chain, Klein said. Alcantara did not have a driver’s license, Klein said.
Alcantara was booked into Sonoma County Jail on $5,000 bail on suspicion of possession of an illegal dirk or dagger, possession of prescription medications without a prescription, driving without a license and violation of probation, Klein said.
Alcantara’s vehicle was impounded for 30 days, Klein said.
