The following is from the Walnut Creek Police Dept.:
This evening, Walnut Creek Police responded to the 3600 block of Perada Dr. on the report of a residential burglary in progress.
The victim came home to find a person unknown to her inside of her residence. The suspect ran out of the house carrying some of the victim’s property.
Eventually, the victim lost sight of the suspect and returned home to speak with an officer.
Meanwhile, additional police units, with assistance from officers with the Concord Police Department, conducted an extensive area check for the suspect.
A Walnut Creek Police Detective located a person matching the suspect description.
This person, a 35 year old male resident of Pittsburg, was determined to be responsible for the burglary.
He was subsequently arrested on a burglary charge and an outstanding warrant, and was booked into the Martinez Detention Facility on these charges.
Great teamwork between neighboring agencies to keep our community safe.
“… an outstanding warrant…”
Anyone surprised ? ? ? ?
Revolving door justice system ? ? ?
If there is no threat of incarceration,
there is no deterrence to criminal behavior
What distinguishes an “outstanding” warrant from a mediocre warrant?
Inquiring minds want to know!
..if anyone here voted for Newsom, Becton, or Bonta – you’re getting what you paid for
My house got broken into on a Friday – during “garbage” day here within the city limits of Walnut Creek (bairly) – close to Pleasant Hill.
I was IN THE SHOWER! I locked the door, and laid low. The robbers got one look at my thousands of books, ancient TV, and old furniture – laughed their azzez off – and left.
I’m sharing this to remind people to BRING IN YOUR GARBAGE CANS (after pick up) – as if they are left out, it looks like you are NOT HOME.
IF – and only IF they tried to confront me, my defense would have been to break out a window and RUN.
Make sure to Lock doors. These robbers had tools to break glass – and cops did catch up with them, as several homes were broken into in this neighborhood.
Nobody ever came back – so word got out that a bunch of book worms and Vitamin addicts live in this zone.
Leave a radio playing, and small light on in back rooms. We also got a curtain for garage “window” – so nobody can tell if the car is not there.
@Clam Bake – So sorry about the burglary, but happy to hear you’re ok.
Very good advice!
Is this connected with the previous crimes in the neighborhood?
I want his name and I want to see his face! Our house was broken into! I want more details about this scumbag!!! Time to stop giving more rights to the criminal than the victims!!!!
Good job LE! … now Becton – do yours and keep him in the pokey – no revolving door garbage
It’s not just Becton, the liberal judges on the bench and liberal juries deserve some blame.
This is the third residential burglary in the woodlands community over the past month. Please be aware of your surroundings and if you see something, say something. These predators watch for single women who live alone and monitor their habits prior. The neighborhood watch program needs to be reconstituted. Together we can make a difference.
He’s probably already out on cashless bail. We don’t know his name, so we can’t check.
Don’t blame the PD for the release, I blame the DA diana becton and the sad majority of democratic voters who elected/re-elected her and voted to weaken the laws teeth in CA with Prop 47 and 57 passage. Plus the State AB109.
It helps if we elect a DA that will prosecute these criminals. Vote the current DA out of office. She is not doing her job.
..agree – but voters keep the do-nothing progressive incumbents in office … we tried with a recall with Newsom to start – unfortunately those of us that want change were outvoted by the do-nothings – Newsom, Becton, Bonta … all for show and keeping their job rather than doing the right thing
Get an alarm people! And cameras to help prosecute.
…the problem is that our DA keeps letting them out with littleor no prosecution
How about a deterrent to committing the crime in the first place, LONG JAIL TIME! It’s getting so bad they don’t care if an alarm is blasting while they get your valuables from the master bedroom and bolt out of the place in a couple of minutes. They don’t care about cameras, hoodies and masks is all they need. The only way to prevent it is to get your own security guard or stay home with a gun.
