Two suspected pimps arrested at Petaluma hotel
Petaluma police seized two guns and arrested two Oakland men on weapons, pimping and other charges near the Quality Inn in northeast Petaluma.
Officers contacted Gene Gleeson and Jivon Clark at the hotel during a prostitution investigation, police said.
During a search, Gleeson was found to have a loaded handgun in his pocket, police said. The gun had been reported stolen. Another loaded handgun was found in the men’s vehicle glovebox.
