On Tuesday, February 4, 2020, the CNMI Department of public safety received a 911 call reporting a theft of a weapon and ammunition from a private residence. Police were dispatched to the scene.

The caller stated that a handgun and ammunition amongst other items were taken from their home. Police notified dispatch of the incident.

On Wednesday, February 5, 2020, at about 3:49 a.m., police conducting routine patrol in Lower Mihaville, observed a vehicle with no front license plates and no rear license plate lights. As officers activated their emergency lights, the vehicle took off along Chalan Pale Arnold Road as it headed southbound in an excessive speed and continued to drive recklessly in an attempt to lose the officers before crashing into a retaining wall near the Aging Center in Chinatown. The suspect who was identified by officers as Patrick Hernandez Muna, got out of his vehicle and fled on foot. After a few minutes officers lost sight of the suspect.

In plain view of the vehicles interior, officers noticed a branch of a green leafy plant which was later positively identified as Marijuana, and multiple small zip lock bags containing a clear crystal-like substance, were later tested positive for methamphetamine. Amongst other items found within the vehicle were an empty box of 20 count, .40 caliber ammunition, and a single (1) .40 caliber ammunition between the drivers seat and the drivers side door.

A follow up interview with the victims of the February 4, 2020, burglary confirmed that the ammunition and the other contents found inside the vehicle, were items stolen from their residence.

On Friday, February 7, 2020, an Arrest Warrant for Patrick Hernandez Muna, was signed by Honorable Judge Theresa Kim-Tenorio with bail set at $25,000.00.
