NEWS RELEASE FROM SAN BENITO COUNTY SHERIFF'S OFFICE:
On January 24, 2014 the San Benito County Sheriff’s Office arrested Mark Hladky at his home at 690 Tevis Trail. The arrest stemmed from a suspicious 911 call made from a cell phone. At 11:52 the anonymous caller stated there was a deceased person at that address.
Deputies and dispatchers worked to re-contact the caller to get more details, and in the process determined the call had come from Hladky’s cell phone.
As a precaution Spring Grove Elementary School was placed on lock-down during the incident, although due to the significant distance no children or staff was in immediate danger.
Familiar with Hladky and his address, on-duty sheriff’s deputies responded to the area and chose to utilize an unmarked vehicle to get a closer look at Hladky’s residence before responding in a marked vehicle.
