3 Burglary Suspects Arrested in Novato

Authorities say the suspects broke into the home by smashing out a rear window.

Authorities on Saturday arrested three men in Novato on suspicion of burglarizing a home in unincorporated San Rafael, the Marin Independent Journal reports.

The alleged incident occurred in Santa Venetia at about 10:30 a.m., the Marin County Sheriff's Office told the IJ.

The suspects were arrested in Novato about an hour later.

The suspects were identified in the report as Julius Mack, 26, of San Francisco, Derrell Compton, 23, of Fairfield, and 22-year-old Tyree Wallace of Marin City.

Mack was arrested on suspicion of burglary, and the other two suspects on suspicion of burglary and conspiracy, according to the report.

All three suspects were booked into Marin County Jail.

Marin County sheriff's deputies responded to a report of a burglary in progress at about 10:30 a.m. The suspects, who authorities say smashed through a rear window to get into the home, were spotted by a resident who saw three men and a woman running away from the home to a dark gray Range Rover with dealer plates, the report said.

Police officers in Novato pulled over the vehicle at about 11:30 a.m.

The female suspect has not yet been identified.

Headed back to Wyndover with their loot I'm guessing. Nice ride too. Good to see our tax dollars at work. I'm just guessing from the names these guys didn't steal a tanning booth.

If we had more AH in Novato they would not have to waste fossil fuels commuting to work. Oh, that's right, ABAG has mandated more AH. Maybe they can be sentenced to house arrest in Novato. Are they affiliated with the Marin City 200 gang (#200 block of AH)?

It use to be that if someone living in subsidized housing was convicted of a crime, they no longer qualified for subsidized housing. Does anyone know if this is still true and if not, why not. It seems like we are paying to house people so they can commit crime on us. According to a recent report by the Marin County Civil Grand Jury, a gang known as the "200 Block Young Hawgz" has grown to about 35 members in Marin City. The 200 block of Drake Avenue is a section of the public housing complex frequently plagued by crime. A newer gang, the "North Rag Mafia," has also surfaced in Marin City, the grand jury reported, citing law enforcement sources. The gang consists of blacks and Nortenos, a Hispanic gang.

Some of you posters must be living under a Rock. The police department puts out all high crime events on a special channel to each working officer. The Lady who saw them running here is the one who you should be thanking as not for her you could have stayed under your rock as it would not have been told to you

Troll biker, I see you're back and trying to bait people with your alter ego - trying to get these good townsfolk all riled up, I get it - you project your comments as a stereotype of people you view as the opposition, but now that you've been exposed, won't you give us your demographic so we can be soo amazed at how insincere you are, while all these other concerned folks, even those I don't always agree with, are trying to have an honest discourse?. Or, are you just bi-polar?
Trailbikerbilly December 30, 2013 at 11:39 PM
Bob- That's true, but if mom is the one on record for housing, and her only crime is using her bastard cannon to populate the planet with felons, she gets to stay, and the little punks just couch surf between prison time.. Nov3per- I'm not sure what you're talking about.

Earlier this year someone posted how AH is part of a vicious circle because if the kids actually go out and get a job, then the family is making too much to stay qualified for the housing. I'll see if I can track it down.

'Earlier this year someone posted how AH is part of a vicious circle because if the kids actually go out and get a job, then the family is making too much to stay qualified for the housing.'......I thought the idea of entitlements was to give people a leg up so they can survive on their own. It wasn't meant to be a lifestyle. Hopkin, as in the article you included above, the parent is suppose to prepare the offspring to be self sufficient at 18 and not develop another generation that cannot take care of their of themselves without more entitlements. We scream about folks with government jobs with pensions who work for it (and pay taxes) while this is like getting a pension without having to even work for it.
Hopkin December 31, 2013 at 12:04 PM
And as I commented on that article, the whole system really needs to be reworked. ;)
Jerome J Ghigliotti Jr January 04, 2014 at 12:51 PM
Welfare WAS supposed to get people off of the public dole, but "entitlements" are now more lucrative than actually working for a living, and they have no term limits. NO ONE is ever evicted from welfare housing even though the rules still require so if any member of the household is convicted of a felony because it is not politically correct to evict criminal leeches....and they might not "vote the right way" next election. ("Vote the right way" is a quote from then Mayor Jeanne MacLeamy of Novato, on another topic. The "right way" is their social engineering point of view---and they keep getting re-elected.)
Craig Belfor January 04, 2014 at 02:19 PM
You should know Jerome. She had you arrested for "not thinking the right way"
Hopkin January 04, 2014 at 02:37 PM
Craig, I guess I should consider myself lucky that my wife only confines me to the basement when I don't think the "right way", rather than get me arrested!

Jerome don't you have a civil rights lawsuit pending against the City ?
