A motorcycle rider pulled over for traffic violations in San Leandro early this morning was found with a loaded 12-gauge shotgun concealed under his jacket, police said. A police officer saw the Harley-Davidson rider skid almost to a stop at a red light at the intersection of Marina Boulevard and Merced Street, then speed off without stopping at about 12:45 a.m., according to police. The officer followed the rider and pulled him over in the 2300 block of West Avenue.
The officer noticed the man had a 10-inch knife protruding from his waistband and ordered him to lie on the ground. When he laid down, the rider’s leather jacket raised up and the officer saw the barrel of a loaded 12-gauge shotgun. The short-barreled shotgun was slung on his back and was easily concealed by the heavy jacket, police said. The rider was identified as Rudolph Maya, 38, and he was arrested on suspicion of carrying a concealed, loaded firearm. He is scheduled to be arraigned in Hayward on Thursday afternoon, police said.
