Two men arrested in San Ramon break-ins

Police investigating whether duo had ties to other recent burglaries

San Ramon police arrested two men in connection with a pair of break-ins in the city Thursday morning, according to a police spokesman.

Derick A. Lewis, 26, of Livermore and 31-year-old Daniel McGlaughlin, a transient, were booked into the Martinez Detention Facility on suspicion of burglary-related offenses, outstanding warrants and other charges, according to San Ramon police Lt. Terry Reeder.

Authorities are also investigating whether the duo had ties to other burglaries in the area, Reeder said.

Police nabbed Lewis and McGlaughlin after responding to a report of a car break-in just before 8 a.m. Thursday in the area of Marble Canyon Place near Golden View Elementary School and Crow Canyon Country Club, according to Reeder.

During the investigation, a resident told police she saw two suspicious strangers in her neighborhood, Reeder said. She then provided a description of the two men, whom she said had just ran from the area, the lieutenant added.

"It appeared the suspects had been startled by the resident and possibly left the vehicle they arrived in behind," Reeder said.

An officer found an abandoned vehicle parked in front of a nearby residence and inside were items taken from the initial theft, according to Reader. Further investigation revealed the vehicle was recently stolen from Livermore but not yet reported to police, he said.

Reeder said more officers arrived on scene and soon located Lewis and McGlaughlin on Crow Canyon Road near Camino Ramon.

Police allege the two men possessed additional property from the initial break-in as well as items taken from a residential burglary earlier Thursday morning in San Ramon. Reeder said both men also had outstanding arrest warrants from Alameda County.

Lewis was booked on suspicion of possessing stolen property and methamphetamine as well as for an arrest warrant out of Berkeley for residential burglary, according to Reeder.

McGlaughlin was booked on suspicion of possessing stolen property and burglary tools, violating probation and having an Alameda County arrest warrant for vehicle theft and evading authorities, Reeder said.

The lieutenant credited the initial call to police and the eyewitness details provided during the investigation, saying, "Without the resident's assistance, we would not have had the suspect information, which led to a quick arrest and property being returned to their owners."

Awesome. We as neighbors at crown ridge in San Ramon have been in touch with srpd quite a bit lately for suspicious people in our neighborhood, and hopefully those two are two of them! We have a very strong neighborhood and refuse to let people who appear to be casing our homes and cars into our area. Thank you astute neighbor who called in, and more importantly Thank You SRPD for being there for us! YOU'RE THE BEST!!!!

Glad they were caught. thanks to involvement of resident who was alert and notified police. The police can only do so much and there aren't enough of them to cover a large town like San Ramon. Lot's of criminals choose our valley cause it is affluent and the people are laid back. Be aware of what is going on around you and if you are concerned or see someone or something out of the ordinary, call the police.

Naughty people of San Ramon---these thieves were only redistributing wealth of others to themselves!!!!
They were ONLY helping "transform America" as stated by the great leader.

Thank you Police and concerned citizen!!!

Teach our children to appreciate the good things that the Police do, to give them praise, and to respect them.

As opposed to teaching them to push on the limits, act and talk disrespectfully, make inappropriate movements, deserve to get shot, and then have their parents seek millions in bogus wrongful death suits.


Great Job!

Just like "Great Job!" says - I'd love to see some photos of people who are arrested! High resolution too! I want to put them up in my boudoir! Nothing like seeing desperate people being put in prison to get my juices flowing!

There is a homeless women that goes around the neighborhood, from Alcosta Blvd
to Village Parkway I believe she is working with a man and a women. Well my son's wallet was taken from his truck, he later found his medical card down the street his licenses was found at the 7-11, and the rest just scattered around there were no credit cards and I think that is what there looking for. That homeless lady is always walking around there in front of my sons place, well when he went to question her this guy came across and said why are you questioning her she didn't do it ,now how did he no what my son was going to ask her, then my granddaughter works at Eric's deli, that same homeless lady came in to buy a sandwich gave a credit card, that didn't work so when she went into her purse to get another card my granddaughter
said she saw a lot of wallets in her purse & she was with another woman.
