Patrol officers locate a loaded firearm with a large capacity magazine during a robbery investigation Monday.

On Monday, December 10, 2018, at 6:37 p.m., Fremont patrol officers were dispatched to a retail store located in the 43700 block of Christy Street to investigate a robbery that had just occurred.  Loss prevention told officers that a group of suspects stole merchandise and threatened to kill employees when confronted.  The license plate of the suspect vehicle was obtained by a witness and also captured on community cameras.
 
Multiple Fremont patrol officers responded to the area and set up on northbound I880, after learning the vehicle was registered out of Hayward.  The vehicle was located traveling northbound and followed, until it exited onto Fremont Blvd.  Once sufficient patrol units caught up, a high risk felony traffic stop was conducted on Fremont Blvd. in the area of Lucky’s/Motel 6.
 
Four occupants of the vehicle were detained and an infant was located seated in the back of the car.  Officers recovered the loss from the robbery as well as a loaded handgun with a large capacity magazine, in a diaper bag next to the infant.  Upon closer examination of the firearm, it was determined to have been converted to a fully automatic weapon.  Officers are following up with ATF to determine ownership of the weapon. 
 
The crime of robbery was unfounded, however the suspects were arrested for a variety of crimes, including theft.  The driver, Ronald Hayes a 24 year old San Lorenzo resident, was arrested on various weapons charges after additional evidence was located of him being in possession of the weapon. Charges included child endangerment, felon in possession of a firearm, carrying a loaded firearm and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.   DeJanae Eads, a 26 year old female, Hayward resident, was arrested for petty theft and child endangerment.  A female juvenile was issued a notice to appear and released to her guardian for theft.  The infant was taken into protective custody by CPS.
