SRPD arrests pair in Dougherty Valley break-in

20-year-olds face felony burglary, conspiracy charges

San Ramon police arrested two people after interrupting a residential burglary in the Dougherty Valley on Labor Day morning, a department spokesman said.

Wahid Homayun, 20, of San Ramon and 20-year-old Dublin resident Noorullah Amiri were booked into the Martinez Detention Facility on suspicion of first-degree burglary and conspiracy, according to San Ramon police Lt. Denton Carlson.

The arrests came after officers responded to a report of a burglary in progress at a home on the 400 block of Rockcrest Circle, near the Bollinger Canyon and Wedgewood roads intersection, around 11:50 a.m. Monday, Carlson said.

Two culprits were seen entering the home and thought to still be inside when the first San Ramon police officer arrived on scene, the lieutenant said.

The first officer detained one of the people trying to leave the front of the home, Carlson said. The second person fled out of the back of the residence but was caught by another police unit while trying to leave the area in a vehicle, according to the lieutenant.

Homayun and Amiri, who were positively identified in a lineup, were found in possession of the resident's laptop and other items, according to Carlson.

Sounds like an alert neighbor spotted trouble and called the SRPD, we all need to keep alert for anything unusual. Nice to see Wahid and Noorullah cooling off in Martinez.

So thankful to live in the wonderful City if San Ramon. Day after day I see the police doing their job of preventing crime to keep the City the way it should be. If you see a San Ramon policeman give him a thumbs up to show his/her appreciation for a job well done.

Many years ago we were looking for a place to live along the "680 corridor". I was driving onto 680 going North from Bollinger Canyon Road one afternoon and saw several SRPD cars stopped trying to help a frightened little dog running loose on the freeway.
I knew this was the place for us. These police not only stop the bad guys but do lots of unheralded good!

I couldn't locate their exact sites, for sure. Nicer if you had posted the links.
Yes, I always like to see pictures accompany the articles. Wonder why DE can never get it all together!?!

In reading this news, I couldn't help but "wonder" how it came to be that these boys were in America, for how long, and how well educated into American society.

They are stealing things, so at least they are "Capitalistic" (materialistic)??!! :>

PSMacintosh - Looks like one went to Dougherty Valley High School and graduated about two years ago. It appears he stayed in the neighborhood to do his crime.

This justice system is crazy. Looks like these two criminals were released from jail and not charged.
