Pair of Burglary Suspects Arrested at Downtown Safeway

One suspect found to have heroin and syringe, Novato police say.

Two burglary suspects were apprehended in separate incidents Wednesday at the downtown Safeway store in Novato, police said.

Loss prevention officers at the store aided in the arrest of Aaron Das Hadala, 36 of San Rafael at 5:58 p.m., and Santiago Enrique Canul-Campos, 27, of Novato at 9:27 p.m., acting Lt. Jennifer Welch said Thursday.

A loss prevention officer detained Hadala after he was seen taking items at the store. Welch said responding officers found Hadala to be in possession of a loaded syringe with heroin inside and additional empty syringes. He had an outstanding warrant and was in violation of his probation.

Hadala, who listed his occupation as data entry when he was booked at Marin County Jail, faces three felony charges (burglary and two drug charges) plus two more felonies and three misdemeanors related to the warrant.

A few hours later, officers responded to the report of a fight at the Safeway store and came across a loss prevention officer struggling to detain a suspected shoplifter who later identified himself as Antonio Garcia-Perez. During the booking process, it was discovered that he had provided a false name to police and was identified as Santiago Enrique Canul-Campos.

Canul-Campos, who gave his occupation as "windows," faces one felony burglary charge and one misdemeanor of obstructing an officer.

Lou Junkies and common sense do not "go" together.

I bet these thugs have cell phones, a place to stay on our dime, and cars. I think in some cases desperation drives this behavior, but in this case, I wonder if these are just pure scumbags who feel like stealing.
