FAIRFAX — Police arrested a man suspected of committing multiple burglaries while pretending to make food deliveries. The suspect was apprehended after he was seen fleeing from a home on Monday.
Burglaries linked to the suspect occurred during the last two weeks. Homes were burglarized in Fairfax, San Anselmo and elsewhere in Marin County.
On March 4th, an alert neighbor phoned Fairfax police to report seeing suspicious behavior on Hillside Drive. The witness was able to provide a description of the suspect’s vehicle.
Almost immediately, two officers spotted the suspect’s car in downtown Fairfax, and they stopped the driver at 11:30 a.m.
While officers were detaining the driver, a different resident who lives on Spring Lane called police to report another residential burglary.
While questioning the suspect, Fairfax officers located property that was later reported stolen from a home in San Anselmo. The Central Marin Police Authority assisted Fairfax police.
In fact, Central Marin police discovered this burglary in San Anselmo—and notified the victim.
Turns out the suspect is a local chef. He apparently carried a Door Dash delivery bag as a ruse. If anyone questioned his presence, he pretended to be making food deliveries, according to Fairfax police.
The suspect identified as Rashaan K. Doran, 23 of Marin City, was arrested at 85 Bolinas Road. Doran was booked at Marin County Jail at 2:49 p.m., where he remains in custody in lieu of $150,000 bond.
Doran faces open charges for three burglaries, one attempted burglary and possession of stolen property. However, authorities believe the suspect may be responsible for other yet unreported burglaries.
