Police display two stolen guns
SAN ANSELMO – The Central Marin Police Authority pulled over a BMW vehicle on Sir Francis Drake Boulevard on June 24, where they arrested two burglary suspects, and recovered two handguns reported stolen.
The arrests followed a report from a resident of nearby Greenbrae who told police that he saw a woman rummaging through his car on Via Casitas at 3:30 p.m. He confronted her and she hopped into a BMW nearby, where another woman was waiting, and drove away.
Police stopped and searched a BMW a few miles away in San Anselmo, which matched the description provided by the witness.
Inside the vehicle, police found items allegedly stolen during the car burglary in Greenbrae, one gun reported stolen in Napa County, a second gun reported stolen in San Joaquin County, property linked to another auto burglary in Contra Costa County, and additional suspected stolen items.
A 5-year-old child asleep in the back of the car was temporarily taken into protective custody, before being released later to a relative.
The driver 22-year-old Marissa C. Walls was booked on several charges, including felony possession of a firearm, conspiracy to commit a crime, burglary, receiving stolen property, carrying a loaded firearm in a public place, carrying a concealed weapon in a vehicle, false representation of identity to a police officer, and driving without a license. Walls is being held at Marin County Jail, where bond for her release was set at $35,000.
Ashley M. Lopez, 33, who was identified by police as a passenger in the BMW, was arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to commit a crime, and child endangerment. She’s in custody in the county jail, held in lieu of $50,000 bond.
