Arrest of Food Delivery Driver Leads to Wider Investigation

SAN RAFAEL — An arrest earlier this month has opened a can of worms for a food delivery driver. San Rafael and Mill Valley police subsequently launched a wider joint investigation of him.

Some evidence recovered during the arrest of Gage Hicks, 24 of San Rafael, may be linked to additional crimes. Hicks remains in custody at Marin County Jail in lieu of $15,000 bond.

Hicks was identified as a suspect, after a stolen dirt bike was found abandoned inside a storage facility. He was recorded by surveillance cameras leaving the bike at the facility located in the Canal District.

Turns out, the dirt bike was reported stolen from another storage facility located in Mill Valley. In addition, Hicks had in his possession two loaded firearms, with serial numbers scratched off. They were found inside his backpack.

Hicks was arrested on May 2. He faces open charges for three felonies. Hicks was booked for drug possession, felon in possession of a firearm, and possession of a stolen vehicle.

Hicks also faces two misdemeanors—possession of drug paraphernalia and trespassing on closed lands.

His case has been turned over to the San Rafael PD investigations unit. It is working with Mill Valley police to learn more about the origin of the stolen property.

Anyone with information about this active case can contact SRPD at 415-485-3000.
