On 02/27/14, approximately 12:30 p.m., our officers responded to a residential burglary that occurred in the 1100 block of Camellia Court. Our staff determined the suspects had forced the front door of a residence open and stole miscellaneous items from inside. A neighbor reported the incident and described the suspects as two Asian males.
Our investigators were able to locate a residential video camera within the neighborhood and they reviewed the footage. The camera captured the suspects fleeing in a vehicle and a license plate number was recorded. Investigators researched who the vehicle belonged to and determined Duc Phan, who resides in Oakland, should have been driving it.
On 03/01/14, investigators went to his residence and determined Phan possessed some of the stolen property and he was arrested for the burglary.
Stolen vehicle recovered with suspect arrested—
On 03/02/14, approximately 7:25 a.m., one of our patrol officers was dispatched to the 14200 block of Santiago Road for the report of a stolen vehicle.
Officers started checking the surrounding area for the missing vehicle and within minutes they located it driving on 98th Avenue in Oakland. The vehicle was stopped and the driver, David Anderson, who resides in Alameda, was arrested for possessing the stolen vehicle.
Lt. Randall Brandt stated, "We are continuing to be targeted by residential burglars and car thieves. We were fortunate in these cases to have alert citizens who didn't hesitate to call us and report these crimes. If it wasn't for the surveillance footage and our partnership with our community, we may have not been so fortunate."
