A patrolling Berkeley Police Department officer arrested Alameda resident Terry Beasley, 38, Wednesday night on suspicion of firearm- and narcotics-related charges, according to a BPD Nixle alert released Thursday afternoon.

Some of the charges Beasley was arrested on suspicion of were possession of narcotics for sale, possession of controlled substances while armed with a loaded weapon and probation violation. The officer found Beasley while on patrol near Willard Park on Regent Street, the alert said.

The officer saw Beasley sitting in an SUV with the window rolled down, according to the alert, and recognized him as someone on probation. The officer then approached Beasley “under the terms of his probation” — during this approach, the officer “surprisingly” found thousands of dollars in his pants and, later, a loaded .45-caliber handgun and large quantities of powdered cocaine.
