A man was arrested Thursday night after attempting to both evade police and throw away a sawed-off shotgun he had in his possession.

At approximately 10 p.m., Lodi police officers and a K-9 unit responded to the 200 block of First Street where police were attempting to apprehend Bradley Jonathan Hansen in connection with a burglary he was suspected of being involved in two nights prior.

He was also wanted for possession of a firearm with a barrel that had been sawed off to an illegal length.

Upon approaching the house, Hansen, 22, and another individual attempted to run out of the house after police notified Hansen they were there to take him into custody, said Detective Larry Fluty.

Hansen initially ran towards police and the K-9 unit, Fluty said, but when he saw the dog and police who had their guns drawn, he attempted to run the other way.

Police had surrounded the property, however, and Hansen found himself running towards another set of police officers.

Hansen attempted to dispose of the shotgun through a door that led to the basement of the home, Fluty said, before he gave up and was arrested.

Hansen was charged with possession of a firearm that was altered in an illegal manner. He was also charged with possession of ammunition.

Hansen is also on parole for a prior offense.

After Hansen was taken into custody, police continued to search the house, where they said they also found items that appeared to have been stolen from an individual who lived in Los Gatos. Among those items was a wake board and some helmets.

Lodi Unified leaders are moving Lodi and Tokay high school graduations from the Grape Bowl to the Spanos Center at UOP in Stockton. They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
