Over Two Dozen Arrests Made During Barstow Probation/PRCS/Parole Compliance Checks

BARSTOW – Dozens of arrests were made during a Thursday afternoon probation and parole compliance operation in the City of Barstow on Thursday. At around 1:00 p.m. in a joint effort to keep the streets safe, 25 officers from the Barstow Police Department, San Bernardino County Probation Department and the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation all performed these checks of those on Active Probation, Post Release Community Supervision (PRCS), or Parole.

“The operation is an ongoing effort to ensure that those individuals on Probation, PRCS or Parole comply with the terms and conditions of their supervised release,” Barstow Police officials said. Twenty-six were arrested during the multiple residence checks and searches of those on Probation, PRCS, and Parole.


“During the operation, officers conducted a traffic enforcement stop on a vehicle in the 700 block of Arville Avenue.” Barstow Police officials said. “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.”

Nicole Patten of Lancaster was also found to be driving a stolen vehicle in the 1200 block of East Main Street. The vehicle was stopped and Patten was arrested and the vehicle was recovered.


The operation resulted in the following additional arrest:
