Local DEA Agent May Have Gun Destroyed

DEA agent was arrested for domestic violence in October.

A Drug Enforcement Agent who was arrested on Oct. 8 for domestic violence will likely lose the gun and ammunition police confiscated from him during the incident, according to the Lagonian.

Millbrae resident and special agent with the San Francisco DEA bureau Jay Anderson, 29, was attending a wedding reception in Foster City with his girlfriend on Oct. 7, when an argument erupted in the parking lot, the Lagonian reports.

A witness called police to report the altercation. The Foster City police officer that responded to the incident stated that Anderson had “forcibly grabbed the female victim on both of her shoulders then intermittently shoved the victim’s chest, causing her to slump down into the area between the driver’s seat and the driver’s door panel,” according to a police report obtained by the Lagonian.

Anderson denied there was any physical contact, and told police the argument was “somewhat heated.” 

His girlfriend requested and was granted an emergency protective order, at which time, Foster City Police confiscated two guns, a Glock 27 and a Glock 22, from Anderson’s Millbrae apartment.

The San Mateo County District Attorney’s Office chose not to prosecute Anderson due to insufficient domestic violence evidence. But regardless of the decision, Foster City Police filed a petition in San Mateo County Superior Court on Dec. 1 to destroy one of two guns it confiscated.

Returning the pistols “would be likely to result in endangering the victim or the person reporting the assault or threat,” according to the petition Foster City police wrote.

A San Mateo Superior Court judge will hear the case to destroy the gun on Jan. 20.
