Grass Valley Man Arrested for Terrorist Threats and Resisting Arrest

Nevada County Sheriff Captain Jeff Powell says the Grass Valley Police issued an alert for 19 year old Vincent Staffa of Nevada City regarding terrorist threats and firing a gun. Captain Powell says Deputies found the man on Cooper Road Monday night. When the Deputies tried to take him into custody, he resisted and reached into the center console for a weapon.

“When they made contact, he tried to get away. Officers indicated that it appeared that he was looking in the center console for a weapon. Subsequently they broke out the window, got him out of the car and arrested him for resisting arrest and the Grass Valley charges.”

Captain Powell said the Deputies knew that Staffa had been armed. So they broke the window out of the car to get the suspect out. Deputies did find a hand gun in the trunk of the car. Staffa was taken into custody for suspicion of the threats and resisting arrest.
