Just before 9 p.m. on Tuesday, March 26 a vehicle driven by Justin Roman Vega, 46, of Sacramento was stopped for a vehicle code violation on the 8400 block of Pastori Way in Sacramento. Officers determined that Vega was on probation and a vehicle search led to the discovery of counterfeit currency. 

Upon searching Vega's residence, officers encountered Larry Jerome Williams, 44, and Mikayla Talla Oaks, 18, both of Sacramento. While trying to detain Oaks, Williams tried to flee from custody.
