SFPD officers assigned to Crime Gun Investigations Center (CGIC) continue to make arrests related to an ongoing firearm and shooting investigation that occurred on January 23, 2023, where a CGIC officer was shot at while attempting to place a suspect into custody.  The suspect from that incident was identified as 25-year-old Spencer Hansen-Mukomela and was later booked on multiple charges (SFPD Case# 230025711, SFPD News Release 23-011). Through the course of the investigation, SFPD investigators were able to identify Hansen-Mukomela’s firearm supplier as 39-year-old Craig Bolland of San Francisco. They developed probable cause to obtain a search warrant for his residence on the 600 block of Green Street as well as vehicles and storage units associated with him.  

On May 30, 2023, officers from CGIC observed Bolland and another male, identified as 36-year-old Jose Reyes of San Francisco, in the area of the 600 block of Green Street and detained them without incident. Officers located a loaded, unregistered, unserialized firearm also known as a "ghost gun" and an extra handgun magazine on Reyes’ person.     

The investigators then served the warrant which resulted in the seizure of multiple illegal firearms.  The weapons included AR-15 style, rifle converted to fully automatic, AK-47 assault rifle, TEC-9 assault pistol, and other firearms.  They also seized firearm accessories, ammunition, and other evidence related to the investigation.     

Bolland was transported to County Jail #1 where he was booked for charges of possession of a firearm by a prohibited person (29800(a)(1) PC), felon in possession of ammunition (30305(a) PC), possession of an assault weapon (30605(a) PC), possession of a controlled substance while armed (11370.1(a) HS), possession or transportation of a machine gun (32625(a) PC), and possession of a short-barreled rifle (33215 PC).
