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.
