SAN RAFAEL – According to a press release issued on April 19th by the San Rafael Police Department (SRPD) a mother and son returned home from shopping shortly before 5 PM Sunday, April 17th, to find an unidentified vehicle in their driveway on Elizabeth Way.
The mother and son also saw an unknown woman standing outside their home. They asked her about the vehicle but the woman denied knowing anything about it. The residents then entered their home and heard a noise in the garage about 15 minutes later. When they went to investigate, they found another unknown woman there who immediately fled after the garage door opened. The homeowners called SRPD and officers responded.
About 10 minutes later, SRPD Officer Aaron Piombo found the two women matching the descriptions with a tow truck driver who had stopped on Chestnut Street. Investigating Officers determined that the two were involved together in the burglary of the Elizabeth Way home and were detained and interviewed at SRPD.
As a result of further investigation, detectives learned that the two suspects are sisters who have been residing in a friend’s trailer in San Rafael for a few days. Detectives were also able to determine that the suspects were linked to a second burglary that occurred on April 14th in the Domican Area of San Rafael.
The suspects were identified as 35-year-old Chivonne Lorraine Bozarth and 32-year-old Daisy Mae Beth Edwards. Both were booked into the Marin County Jail for 2 counts of residential burglary, criminal conspiracy, possession of burglary tools and possession of a suspected controlled substance (methamphetamine.)
