San Ramon police arrest teens after residential burglary

Investigators search for other suspects who fled scene in crossover SUV

San Ramon police arrested two teenagers and are actively searching for two other people in connection with a residential burglary Monday.

A San Ramon man contacted police after he returned to his home on the 2600 block of Derby Drive around 8:45 a.m. and noticed the side gate was open, according to San Ramon Police Lt. Craig Stevens.

The resident went to close the gate and two male strangers ran past him out of the gate, got into a white Nissan Rogue parked outside the home and fled the scene, the lieutenant said.

According to Stevens, the resident saw two additional people run from the back of the house and climb over the fences.

Officers arrived soon arrived on scene and cleared the residence. Portions of the home were ransacked and several items were missing, Stevens said.

The two people who ran from the yard were located and arrested in a backyard on Tumbleweed Court a short time later, according to Stevens.

Marquis Parker, 19, of San Francisco was arrested on suspicion of burglary, conspiracy and having an arrest warrant from the San Francisco Sheriff's Department.

A 16-year-old Bay Point boy was arrested on suspicion of burglary, conspiracy, probation violation and having an arrest warrant out of Contra Costa County.

The investigation is ongoing, and police are looking for information about the other two suspects and their crossover SUV, which has California license plate No. 6YDJ348. To reach investigators, call 973-2700.

I'm sure Marquis Parker is a displaced Norwegian from Bay Point.

Ever notice how "wits" like Bill never seem to comment on stories like Web Link Of course, Bill will inform you that if you say he's a racist because he feels compelled to point out the presumed race of any criminal who isn't white while ignoring those who are you are "playing the race card" which means he's the victim.

Right Bill?

In a sense I'm glad for the screen name option which makes folks like "Bill" feel free to express their racism anonymously while his cohorts piously proclaim in public that there is no racism in America anymore, and anyone who says there is is just making "excuses."

What matters is that the youth who are committing the crime feel compelled to steal. It is a mindset and way of thinking that will only lead them to more crime if they are not caught, taught and re-educated. Those kids think it is cool and ok to do what they do. It is the parents that have not done their job. Society suffers from their lack of parenting skills. Maybe they should be taught these skills in schools at an early age since they clearly aren't learning them at home.

With their "priors", why were these creeps out on the streets? Clearly there is no rehabilitation of these criminals. Get them off the streets and away from our homes and families.

Ok so everytime a kid becomes a criminal or makes poor choices they have bad parents who have no parenting skills?! I disagree. There are alot of great parents out there that have raised wonderful kids with one maybe having a mental illness or the Disease of Addiction or just hanging with the wrong crowd and chose to make bad choices. These kids know the difference between right and wrong. They are feeding something other than their stomachs. Most likely a drug addiction which they will do anything to get that next fix. So stop blaming the parents and realize that these kids make their own choices with no fault but their own.
