Berkeley, California (Tuesday, November 15, 2016) - On 11/4/16 at 10:20pm, Berkeley Police Dispatch was made aware of a stolen BMW which appeared to be parked in the O Dock Parking Lot of the Berkeley Marina by the BMW Assist (Stolen Vehicle Tracking System Dispatch Center).  Two Officers responded and located the vehicle parked in the O Dock parking lot which was occupied by two adults.  The vehicle's occupants were detained inside the vehicle. A computer check of the occupants showed them both to be on felony probation for identity theft.  During a search of the vehicle the officers recovered two handguns, 1.25 grams of suspected methamphetamine, methamphetamine smoking paraphernalia, credit cards, checks, consumer profiles, and mail belonging to several victims.
