On Tuesday, September 21, 2021, members of the East Precinct Neighborhood Response Team (NRT) attempted to contact a subject they knew to have a warrant. The subject, 29-year-old Larry Yanez Rubio, fled from officers on foot, but after a short chase gave himself up. Rubio, a convicted felon, had two firearms, 28.8 grams of heroin, 5.6 grams of methamphetamine and 7 Oxycodone pill in his possession. Rubio was booked on his warrant and the following charges:

Several counts of Felon in Possession (handgun) and Unlawful Possession of a Loaded Firearm;
Possession/Distribution of a Controlled Substance (Heroin);
Possession of a Controlled Substance (Hydrocodone);
Possession of a Controlled Substance (Methamphetamine);
Escape III;
Attempt to Elude;
Interfering with a Police Officer;

NRT's contact with Rubio led to further investigation which resulted in officers contacting 28-year-old Leonel Olvera-Hernandez, who also had a warrant for his arrest. Olvera-Hernandez also had a firearm in his possession, despite being a convicted felon. Olvera-Hernandez was booked on his warrant and charged with Felon in Possession.
