Woodland Weekly Police Report

Motorcycle Pursuit: On Monday at around 3:37 p.m., an officer attempted to conduct a traffic stop on a motorcyclist, Jeovanny Leon-Brambila, on Lemen Ave. Brambila, a 20-year-old Woodland resident, fled eastbound on Lemen Ave at 50 MPH turning northbound on Donnely Circle. The motorcycle was an old maroon pieced together Kawasaki street bike with no seat or license plate.

Brambila drove into the center grass area and continue to flee eastbound through the center area of Donnely Circle as the officer continued along the north roadway. Brambila was passing kids in the playground area, then had trouble keeping traction on the grass which caused him to slow and keep dropping the bike. This gave officers the opportunity to safely drive into the center and order Brambila to the ground and take him into custody.

Brambila was booked at Yolo County Jail for evading the police, driving on a suspected license and no registration on his vehicle. Possession of Stolen Property: On Monday at around 12:34 a.m., over on East Gibson and Matmor Road, officers were out patrolling and stopped a suspicious van driven by 27-year-old Xavier Altamirano. During the stop, the officer observed drug paraphernalia in the center console and numerous fuel cans set up for siphoning gas.

During a search of the van three catalytic converters were located, one being from the van itself. Altamirano could not provide details of where he got the catalytic converters, which appeared to have identification tags removed. The van was registered to an out-of-town business, which he did not work for; the van itself is still under investigation.

Later in the day, the van was determined to be stolen and additional charges were added.
