Seen This Guy? He's a Burglary Suspect

Novato police believe Shawn Buckley robbed homes in Novato's San Marin area on Dec. 19.

Novato police are asking the public's keen eyes to help find a residential burglary suspect who eluded capture on Dec. 19.

Investigators concluded that Novato resident Shawn Buckley, 18, has been linked to burglaries in the San Marin neighborhood that day. His cohort, Cody Lawson, 20, of Novato was arrested a few hours after the first call about a home break-in on San Luis Way.

Buckley is described as white, 6-foot-2, 135 pounds, with shoulder-length brown hair and green eyes. Law enforcement officers from several agencies combed the San Marin area for hours after the burglaries but could not locate Buckley.

Anyone with information about Buckley's whereabouts is invited to call Novato police at 897-4361. Meanwhile, the investigation is ongoing, according to Det. Mike Howard.

Psh whatever, if people carried guns he would never have done it. People in this area don't want guns? I'm not saying to shoot him, but fuckin scare the shit out of him. If thieves know you have weapons guess what? They won't rob you haha

What if they come in armed as well and get the jump on you? Then having a gun wouldn't have done you much good, now would it? I'm not saying that no one should have a gun, just that the simple fact that you own a gun doesn't always deter crime.

Novato Native: Well wouldn't it be better to be armed and have an burglar come in with a gun also than be unarmed and have him come in with a gun?

Realistically, are you going to have enough time to orient and arm yourself in the case of a home invasion? I can understand having one for peace of mind, but being prepared doesn't always you'll be ready to use your preparations. I'm not saying its useless, just that its not always going to deter crime or be useful.
