Sheriff: Modesto man suspected of stealing cop gear and chemical agents

MODESTO, CA - Stanislaus County sheriff's detectives are trying to figure out where possibly missing, and they believe stolen, police chemical agents and projectile chemical agents have gone as well as the man they suspect of taking them.

The items belonged to the now defunct Oakdale Police Department SWAT unit. The chemicals and the locker they were in were last accounted for in 2007, according to sheriff's spokesman Sgt. Anthony Bejaran.

Detectives suspect Yuri Pearson, 34, of Modesto for the thefts. Pearson was arrested on Aug. 1 on unrelated booking charges of  attempted rape and criminal threats. Bejaran said. But it was during a search of Pearson's North Avenue home, Bejaran said, that sheriff's deputies recovered police-issued body armor, a police raid vest, a pepper spray grenade and a nylon duty belt. That was in addition to 18 firearms, some of them loaded and within access of young children, Bejaran said.
