Danville Police Arrest Three for Drugs, Burglary Tools

Danville Police arrested three individuals, including a resident for drugs and burglary tools in two separate incidents Saturday night.

According to police, the first incident occurred around 6:42pm on Morninghome Road. A routine traffic stop led to the arrests of two individuals after it was discovered that they had a quantity of drugs, drug paraphrenalia and a set of lockpicks.

The driver, Kelly Tulchinsky, 37, of Danville was charged with possession of burglary tools and probation violation, according to a police spokesman. The passenger, Sarrah Coday, 26, of Concord was charged with possession of a pipe used to smoke dangerous drugs, possession of a controlled substance without a prescription, possession of a dangerous drug and an outstanding warrant. Both were transported to the Martinez Detention Facility.

According to an article featured in a 2007 edition of the Danville Weekly, Tulchinsky was arrested while looking into vehicles in Danville almost a decade ago. On that day, Tulchinsky was arrested for possession of stolen property and possession of a pipe for smoking a controlled substance.

The second incident occurred at 4:07am Sunday morning on Forest Hills Place. An officer driving on North Forest Hills Place spotted an individual shining a flashlight into parked vehicles. After being contacted by the officer, the individual, identified as James Rivera, 44 of Walnut Creek was found to be in possession of methamphetamines and credit cards not belonging to him. He was charged with possession of a dangerous drug, possession of a credit card without the cardholder’s consent, possession of stolen property and child neglect after it was determined that he left his 11 year old child at home alone. Rivera was transported to the Martinez Detention Facility.
