Loaded Firearm Found During Traffic Stop

Los Banos Talk

On April 2, 2021 at about 4:40 p.m., the Los Banos Police Department Gang Unit stopped a vehicle for a traffic violation in the area of State Route 152 and Badger Flat Rd.

The vehicle was occupied by multiple people. Officers searched the vehicle and found a concealed loaded pistol.

The driver, 19-year-old Brian Canas of Los Banos, was placed under arrest for felony weapon violations. Canas was booked into the Los Banos Police Department Jail.

In response to the resent rise in violent crime from the previous year, the new Los Banos Gang Unit has been seemingly taking a proactive approach to crime. They seem to be using criminal profiling and pre-text traffic stops in order to apprehend criminals before they commit a more serious or violent crime.
