Ahead of the first anniversary of the massive Ghost Ship fire in Oakland some new body cam footage has been released showing cops threatening to close down the place almost two years before the fire. The footage from January 31st 2015, the Bay Area News Group got a hold of this week after a public records request. The footage shows Oakland police threatening to close the Ghost Ship or report those running the warehouse because of a string of thefts, tenant disputes involving weapons and out of control parties. The footage also shows from Jan. to March of 2015 cops trying to deal with the manager of the space, Derrick Almena who’s now charged with fellow tenant Max Harris of 36 counts of involuntary manslaughter.
