A trio of suspects is in custody following their arrests Monday for burglary. Danville PD received a call at 3:24 a.m. Monday morning from a resident on Hill Meadow Place who reported seeing individuals near their car, and items stolen from the vehicle. The suspects fled in a waiting auto.
Based upon the description of the suspect’s vehicle provided by the resident, a Danville Officer stopped the vehicle and took the three occupants into custody. The recently stolen items were found in the suspect’s vehicle, along with several other items that police have since learned were also reported stolen from additional Danville residents. Arrested were:
Jacob Kober, 23, of Livermore
Caitlin Affleck, 20, of Livermore
Russ Mendenhall, 34, of Livermore
All three are charged with Probation Violation, Grand Theft and Possession of Stolen Property. Kober was also arrested on an outstanding felony warrant for burglary. The suspects are being held at the Martinez Detention Facility.
Danville Police Chief Steve Simpkins praised the quick actions of both the victim and the arresting officer. “This was one of those times that illustrates how effective the relationship between the police and our citizens can be” Simpkins said.
