On the above date and time Chico Police officers contacted three individuals, Shayla Robins-Bailey, Matthew Considine, and Joseph Lawrence, at the above location. All three suspects arrived in a vehicle driven by Robins-Bailey, as the officers enjoyed a cup of coffee in the parking lot. As Robins-Bailey exited the vehicle’s driver’s seat, the officers heard and saw Robins-Bailey drop narcotic paraphernalia on the asphalt parking lot. The officers, based on plain view, contacted the three suspects and initiated a narcotics investigation.
During their investigation, passenger Matthew Considine, had in his possession a concealed and loaded semi-automatic firearm, tucked in his front waistband. Considine is a convicted felon. In continuing the investigation, the vehicle was searched. During the search, two additional semi-automatic firearms, narcotics, narcotics paraphernalia, narcotics packaging material and U.S. currency were all found inside the car.
Approximately 15 minutes into the investigation on East Ave., CPD dispatch received a call from a male victim reporting he was just robbed inside his home. The victim stated he was asleep, when he was suddenly awoken by two males known to him as Matthew Considine and Joseph Lawrence. The suspects brandished firearms at the victim, demanded money, pistol whipped the victim causing a laceration to his face and told him they would kill him if he contacted the police. Considine and Lawrence left with the victim’s wallet, cell phone and cash. All three items were found by officers inside the suspect’s vehicle.
The victim, after he was contacted by police, was self-transported by a family member to Enloe Hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.
