  • Mio Flores says:

    I find it unprofessional for a newsletter to print something out of content.I would hop you recant and correct your blotting regarding my sons status. Michael Mio Flores first and foremost was not arrested, he walked into the APD and self surrendered for allegations,and was NOT booked nor charged for any type of drug administrator at all. ….there seems to be a lot of information not being talked about by the alleged victim. …..who indeed has had a long term relationship with my son as friends with benefits with eachother …..please state the fact that Michael Flores did turn himself in and there was no charge of administering of drugs,and also all items were recovered. ……I am available. ………a father

    • Mr. Flores,

      Thanks for your comment. I wanted to let you know that I followed up with the Alameda Police Department regarding this case and that they confirmed our account is accurate. (Alameda County’s inmate locator also indicates that Michael Mio Flores was arrested and booked on these two charges.) The district attorney is now seeking to prosecute on a grand theft charge, and police said they may seek additional charges pending toxicology reports.

      If you have any additional concerns about the accuracy of our information, please do contact me. I can be reached at michele@theislandofalameda.com.
