Warrant Arrest Made in Olive Area

Woman faces burglary, forgery and stolen property charges after Santa Rosa incident.

Officers from the new Novato Response Team made a warrant arrest Wednesday of a local woman suspected of a burglary in Sonoma County, police said Thursday.

After a warrant was issued for Lillian Gail Brown, 28, officers went to a home in the 1400 block of Chase Street in Novato's Olive neighborhood at 7:34 p.m. Wednesday and arrested her without incident, Lt. Keith Heiden said.

Brown, who works in customer service, faces a $75,000 bail tied to felony charges of burglary, forgery and receiving stolen property, according to the Marin County Jail booking log.

Brown was sought after an incident that took place in Santa Rosa. A message was left with Santa Rosa police about the date and nature of the crimes Brown is accused of committing.

The four-person Novato Response Team was established in July to curb street crimes covering all of the city's beats. A $1.1 million, three-year  grant allowed for the creation of a team of two officers, a corporal and a management analyst to coordinate efforts with the Marin County Major Crimes Task Force, the Cooperative Probation Enforcement team and other law enforcement agencies.
