Auto Burglary Suspects Arrested After Novato Spree

Incidents were reported at Hamilton Marketplace and Vintage Oaks before officers got a good description on the suspects.

Three San Francisco men face several felony charges related to a rash of auto burglaries Tuesday in shopping center parking lots, Novato police said.

A reported burglary at 3:30 p.m. prompted a response from several officers to a spot near the Old Navy store at the Vintage Oaks Shopping Center, Lt. Jennifer Welch said Wednesday. A witness provided a description of the suspects' vehicle, and it matched what was seen in previous burglaries elsewhere in the shopping center and at Hamilton Marketplace, a few miles to the south of Vintage Oaks.

A Marin County Sheriff's deputy spotted the vehicle on southbound Highway 101 and made a traffic stop near Mill Valley. The men inside were identified as the suspects and arrested.

Those arrested were: Baxter Demaree Bradley, 20; Kevin LaMarr Lewis Jr., 22; and Anthony Galasi, 22. They face charges of auto burglary, conspiracy to commit a crime and possession of stolen property.

I wonder what town they came from to add to the crime in Novato?

I'm guessing they didn't steal a tanning booth.

Baxter? Kevin? Anothony? What exactly do you mean by that "Ron Burgundy"? Those are normal names to me. One guy has an interesting middle name...that sure doesn't tell me what city they came from. Sheesh!

They are from San Francisco.

What happened to the Ron Burgundy's comment, "read the names and take a wild guess"? If you refer to names anything is conjecture. The turquoise puzzle palace made a decision to withhold any description that would politically incorrectly give reference to ethnicity.
