On Thursday, July 20, 2017, at approximately 1:00 pm, the Barstow Police Department, San Bernardino County Probation Department and the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation conducted a probation / parole compliance operation in the City of Barstow.  The purpose of the operation was to conduct compliance checks on individuals currently on active Probation, Post Release Community Supervision (PRCS) or Parole.  This operation was comprised of twenty-five (25) officers from the Barstow Police Department, the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department, the San Bernardino County Probation Department, the California Highway Patrol and the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation.  The operation is an on-going effort to ensure that those individuals on Probation, PRCS or Parole comply with the terms and conditions of their supervised release.


Teams of officers conducted multiple residence checks and searches of the subjects on Probation, PRCS, and Parole and arrested 26 people.


During the operation, officers conducted a traffic enforcement stop on a vehicle in the 700 block of Arville Avenue.  During the traffic stop, officers conducted a search of the vehicle and located an illegal sawed-off shotgun, ammunition for the shotgun, and narcotics.  Officers identified the driver as Christopher Thatcher, from Barstow. Further investigation revealed that Thatcher cannot legally possess firearms. Officers placed Thatcher under arrest and seized the firearm.


Also during the operation, one of the teams of officers located a stolen vehicle.  The officers observed a white female adult driving the vehicle in the 1200 block of East Main Street.  The officers conducted a vehicle stop on the stolen vehicle and identified the driver as Nicole Patten of Lancaster; CA.
