Luck ran very short for two San Anselmo burglars on the morning of August 26, according to an KGO-TV new story. Around 10 AM, police received a report of a burglary in progress at a home in the 100 block of Summit Road, according to a San Anselmo police captain. The suspects had fled the scene but were spotted heading toward San Rafael.
The Dodge Charger they were driving collided with three other vehicles on Second Street. Police moved in and detained the suspects at gunpoint. Neither the burglary victim nor the occupants of the other vehicles involved in the crash were hurt. Second and Third streets had to be closed for an hour due to the police activity.
In addition to the burglary charges, these two suspects will likely face reckless driving charges as well. If they are “career criminals”, they can look forward to spending a long time in jail. The suspects face second-degree burglary charges because no one was harmed. In Colorado, second-degree burglary is a Class 2 felony punishable with jail time.
A Castle Rock criminal defense attorney in this case will undoubtedly advise his client of his rights and his defense options. He will advise him of the best and worst possible outcomes. He may advise a plea deal to get the shortest sentence possible under the circumstances. He will review all of the information pertaining to the case to make sure proper protocols were followed during the arrest, namely to see if there is any evidence of improprieties that could work in his client’s favor.
