Los Banos Talk

On April 28, 2021, Officer Luis Castellanos conducted a traffic stop in the area of California Ave. and Pacheco Blvd. During the course of the traffic stop Officer Castellanos became aware that the driver, 30-year-old Raul Cecena of Los Banos, was on active felony probation.

Officers searched Cecena’s vehicle in accordance to the terms of probation and while doing so located ammunition, and suspected fentanyl narcotics. Cecena was placed under arrest at that time.

Later after contacting Cecena’s probation officer, a follow-up search was conducted at Cecena’s residence under his probation terms. In the course of that search, Officer Castellanos located a loaded handgun which was reported stolen out of Santa Clara County. Cecena was booked at the Los Banos Police Department Jail under several felony charges.
