Police say Cannata was in possession of drugs and drug paraphernalia at the time of his arrest. A search of another vehicle and homes related to Cannata turned up property belonging to one of the stolen vehicles and ammunition, which Cannata is prohibited from possessing because he has prior felony convictions, according to Fullerton police.
One of the vehicles that was captured on surveillance video being taken away by a tow truck was a work van with thousands of dollars of equipment inside. Police say that missing van has not yet been found.MORE NEWS: LAUSD Begins Phased-In Reopening Starting This Week
