BERKELEY — A creepy burglar didn’t flee far after waking up a sleeping resident. Police caught him leaving the burglary victim’s stolen car four blocks away, and they arrested him.

On November 14th, a woman awoke startled by sounds made by someone walking around her house at 2:48 a.m. When she got up to investigate, she saw a man creeping down her stairs, and exiting out her front door.

Immediately, the woman who lives on the 1000 block of Pardee Street phoned the police. While waiting for officers to arrive, she walked through her residence, and realized her home had been burglarized.

Among the items she discovered missing—her car key was gone. However, she didn’t dare go outside to check on her vehicle. When the officers arrived, they determined her car was stolen, and they began searching the neighborhood for it.

About four blocks away, near the intersection of Channing Way and Ninth Street, officers located her car. Their timing was great – they spotted the suspect exiting from the victim’s stolen car.
The suspect, Anthony W. Graham, a 42-year-old resident of Richmond, was detained.

Subsequently, Graham was arrested and booked at Santa Rita Jail. He remains in custody there in lieu of $75,000 bond.

Graham’s charges include vehicle theft, first degree burglary, and residential burglary while another person is present. His next court date is December 5. Meanwhile, Graham’s probation for prowling last month was revoked.
