SAN RAFAEL – According to a press release issued March 31st, 2016, by the San Rafael Police Department (SRPD), officers had been dispatched to the Peacock Gap area of the city shortly before 12:30 pm. An employee of a residence in the 200 block of Riviera Drive arrived at the home to find that it had been ransacked.
The residents arrived at the home to meet with Officers and noted that computers, including a tablet, jewelry, and an undisclosed amount of money had been taken. A victim was able to use the “Find my iPad” feature to track the location of the stolen iPad.
Officer Carlos Maldonado responded to the location of the iPad signal which was emanating from a vehicle in The Village Shopping Center parking lot in Corte Madera. Officer Maldonado located the vehicle which was occupied by three suspects.
One of the subjects had fled the area but the other two were contacted by Officer Maldonado. Maldonado saw property in the rear of the vehicle which he suspected was also stolen in the burglary. The robbery victims later identified the items in the rear of the suspect vehicle as having been stolen from their home.
The suspects have been identified as 21-year-old Kayla Moss and 19-year-old Brandon Silvas, both of Fremont. Moss and Silvas were arrested for possession of stolen property and burglary and were booked into the Marin County Jail. Investigators are in the process of identifying the third outstanding suspect.
