Police Search for Three Suspects in Terra Linda Burglary

Police pursued three men across the Richmond Bridge, but lost them after they abandoned the car and fled on foot.

San Rafael police are searching for three men who attempted to burglarize a Terra Linda home Tuesday morning, according to police spokeswoman Margo Rohrbacher.

At approximately 11:15 a.m., a woman who lived on Sailmaker Court went downstairs to find an unknown man in her house. The man fled in a green Nissan Quest with two other passengers after the woman screamed at him.

Police spotted the vehicle heading eastbound and pursued the vehicle until the suspects abandoned the car and fled on foot in Richmond. The suspects were not able to be located.

At the Sailmaker residence, officer discovered another home down the street had been burglarized. Stolen property from the second incident was found in the vehicle, Rohrbacher said. “There could be more incidents, but we’re still investigating,” she said.

The man found in the house was described as a black male, with a stocky build, around 6 feet tall with a shaved head. The two other males in the car were black, but no other description is available, according to Rohrbacher.

"Investigators are following several leads and hope to identify the primary suspect in this crime shortly," she said.
