a criminal investigation. What would it look like?
Expert:  N Cal Atty replied 1 year ago.

I cannot find a sample on line, but it would state the name of the officer and what the officer did. For example, on such and such a date I observed subject X driving a 2004 red cadillac, license #-----. I checked with dispatch and discovered the vehicle had been reported stolen. I called for backup and then pulled over the vehicle and arrested X for possession of stolen property and suspicion of theft. Upoin searching the vehicle, I discovered items A, B, and C which were labeled and put into evidence containers. I transported X to the Z County jail for processing at 2 p.m.
