Mayor mixes politics and crime after Stockton murders

STOCKTON - No one who follows Stockton politics would have been surprised to see a Facebook post from Mayor Anthony Silva less than 24 hours after five people were murdered Saturday.

But the message wasn't one of condolences; it was political.

"Don't believe incumbent city council members when they come to your door or mail you flyers saying things are getting better. In the last 24 hours we have had 5 homicides in 3 non related incidents. Please help me help Stockton. Vote for new city council members. Fire the incumbents and spread the word," wrote the mayor.

Silva isn't apologizing for that post.

"I'm passionate about this city and fighting crime. It's a big deal to me. I'm going to continue to be vocal," Silva said on Tuesday.

Suspects in skeleton masks rob Stockton man at gunpoint

A man working on his vehicle in his garage was robbed at gunpoint in Stockton Monday night.

The man was in the garage with the door up when two individuals dressed in black hooded sweatshirts, khaki pants, gloves and neon green skeleton masks approached him around 11:46 p.m., according to a Stockton police report.

The report stated one of the men pointed a black, semi-automatic handgun at the man and forced him into the house on the 2100 block of Shelby Creek Court. The second man then ransacked the house.

The robbers fled east on McCloud River Dr. with several pieces of jewelry, the report detailed.

Anyone with information on the suspects or the robbery is encouraged to contact Stockton police.

Stockton hopes violence prevention office makes a difference

STOCKTON - After his department responded to five people murdered in three separate incidents late Saturday night, Stockton Chief of Police Eric Jones is anxious to see the city's new Office of Violence Prevention get staffing.

"Instead of changing strategies constantly, a community like Stockton needs that keen focus on violent crime," Jones said.

The Office of Violence Prevention is being funded through the recently passed Measure A, which also paid for 120 additional officers. Jessica Glynn was named by the Marshall Plan stakeholders group to head up the office. She starts later this week.

"It's continuing to coordinate all the efforts, so we don't have non profits and clergy going in different directions. It's keeping everyone focused on the problems and focused on what the data is telling us," Jones said.
