Hyperlink Discovered Between Smash-and-Seize Burglaries in Larkspur and Palo Alto – CBS San Francisco

PALO ALTO (KPIX) – While Bay Area law enforcement continues to investigate numerous high-profile retail break-ins, detectives from two departments about 50 miles apart appear to have found links between two of the incidents.

Shortly after 9:00 p.m. on Sunday, a group of around 40 people smashed the windshield and broke into The RealReal in Larkspur, according to Central Marin police. The suspects were able to get into the consignment store, where they stole goods worth around $ 250,000.

Keyonnie Jones, 20, from Richmond and Imani Barnes, 21, from Vallejo were arrested according to Palo Alto police.

Both departments are now working together to see if there are any links between the people involved in the crimes in their cities and those who committed similar crimes in other cities across the Bay Area.

“They had problems in San Francisco, they had Walnut Creek, Contra Costa, they had here,” said John Woodmansee, who lives in Palo Alto. “Of course gangs move around in the Bay Area.”

Many Bay Area locals are aware of the recent break-ins in their neighborhood and other parts of the Bay Area.
