Seen This Guy? He's a Burglary Suspect

Novato police believe Shawn Buckley robbed homes in Novato's San Marin area on Dec. 19.

Novato police are asking the public's keen eyes to help find a residential burglary suspect who eluded capture on Dec. 19.

Investigators concluded that Novato resident Shawn Buckley, 18, has been linked to burglaries in the San Marin neighborhood that day. His cohort, Cody Lawson, 20, of Novato was arrested a few hours after the first call about a home break-in on San Luis Way.

Buckley is described as white, 6-foot-2, 135 pounds, with shoulder-length brown hair and green eyes. Law enforcement officers from several agencies combed the San Marin area for hours after the burglaries but could not locate Buckley.

Anyone with information about Buckley's whereabouts is invited to call Novato police at 897-4361. Meanwhile, the investigation is ongoing, according to Det. Mike Howard.

What ever happend to "innocent until proven guilty"? Oh, wait a minute... I forgot this is Novato! Never mind.
GR December 27, 2012 at 03:52 AM
Under other circumstances I'd definitely agree, but unfortunately he conspired with the wrong guy....

Check Bay Vista, Leafwood Apts, Center Place and Wendover.

What a freak. And a coward too.
Devin December 27, 2012 at 06:43 PM
SO true. And, of course, we have comments like this "Check Bay Vista, Leafwood Apts, Center Place and Wendover." I am SO sick of hearing about these complexes. He could be anywhere.

Yo ah thought you said you knew where yo' man wuz dat day , at least dat's what ah think you cryptic misspelled message says what sup now?

If you know where he is, you should really tell him to turn himself in. If he really wasn't there and he can prove it, then he should be off the hook. He's still just a burglary suspect, not a burglar, so he should have nothing to hide if he wasn't there. If he keeps evading arrest, it looks worse for him. If you really care about him, you should ask him to just go to the police and tell them what happened, because hiding out is not going to make things better for him.
Anthony December 28, 2012 at 08:15 PM
Well seeing these comments defending him and the grammar used in them, I can see what kind of a person he is. I would be willing to bet he is guilty. Coming on here complaining with terrible grammar does not help him one bit.
Buck Fuzby December 28, 2012 at 08:44 PM
I'm with Novato Native on this one. If he isn't involved, he might want to explain that to the police. His failure to do so, up to this point, just makes him look guilty. All he has to do is provide some info that can show his alibi is valid and you can wander the comment section victorious! But that will not happen. Any guesses why?
Buck Fuzby December 28, 2012 at 08:48 PM
Whoa whoa!!! Nothing about his actions make him a 'coward'! I back Dalilah on this one. He is leech. I say that with all respect to leeches as they actually do have some redeeming value in society. Dalilah, we can't call him a 'coward' or a 'leech' to his face... not with him in hiding!!
Craig Belfor December 29, 2012 at 02:24 AM
If Dalila was on scene then there were 3 burglars.
Tiffany December 29, 2012 at 08:47 PM
Dalilah and Roxanne seem like two very classy ladies!
Matt January 08, 2013 at 11:26 PM
Psh whatever, if people carried guns he would never have done it. People in this area don't want guns? I'm not saying to shoot him, but fuckin scare the shit out of him. If thieves know you have weapons guess what? They won't rob you haha
Novato Native January 09, 2013 at 08:56 PM
What if they come in armed as well and get the jump on you? Then having a gun wouldn't have done you much good, now would it? I'm not saying that no one should have a gun, just that the simple fact that you own a gun doesn't always deter crime.
Anthony January 09, 2013 at 09:06 PM
Novato Native: Well wouldn't it be better to be armed and have an burglar come in with a gun also than be unarmed and have him come in with a gun?
Novato Native January 10, 2013 at 03:41 AM
Realistically, are you going to have enough time to orient and arm yourself in the case of a home invasion? I can understand having one for peace of mind, but being prepared doesn't always you'll be ready to use your preparations. I'm not saying its useless, just that its not always going to deter crime or be useful.
