Elements of the San Jose Police Department raided a home on Breckinridge Court on Monday, aided by members of the Tracy Police Department, who blocked streets around the area to keep residents out of a potentially dangerous situation.

Some children who attend nearby Traina School and live around Breckinridge Court — off Whispering Wind Drive in south Tracy — were held at the school office until parents came to get them.

Officers first approached the home at about 1:30 p.m. The occupants, an unidentified man and young woman, refused to come out for two hours. The man then surrendered to San Jose officers and was taken away from the scene. Officers wearing SWAT body armor and holding automatic weapons entered the home to search it — first using flashbang grenades.

Tracy police referred questions to a San Jose police spokesman, who did not return calls for information.

All the swat crew was just unnecessary,the guy wasn't armed with any weapons it was the passenger.If it was a white male who did this there would be no problem!! The police wouldn't be going so deep into this topic, & for him not doing the shooting he just was a driver. The crime he did was just drive away and that's it he did not shoot the guy. And the way he is dressed does not define this male we all have the way we dress I wear socks like that for softball, does that make me a punk ? And the people inside the house I feel so bad for them! They did not have to deal with all the commotion outside.

Sweetlove02,

The officers could not have known that he was unarmed because he refused to come out of the home for two hours. As for his crime, the government doesn't typically take the time and money to send a SWAT team for someone who is not a significant threat.

The way a person dresses does not make him or her a punk. Committing a crime and avoiding the consequences does.

The people in the house could have avoided the commotion by releasing the accused criminal they were harboring to the police.

What happened to the girl in the house after they flashbanged and raided it with automatic assault rifles?

Unbelievable. All this crime in what looks like a fairly decent neighborhood in Tracy. Little agricultural family town it isn't any longer.

Editor: Please refer to photo 3 out of 7. It's someone golfing, obviously unrelated to the story, unless these golfballs have ammunition in them- the the accompanying caption is correct!

"Heavily armed San Jose police officers gather in front of a house on Breckinridge Court on Monday."

I always wondered what was up with that too. So far I have never seen someone that looked like a fine upstanding citizen dress like that.
