Man Detained for a Stolen License Plate Arrested on a Warrant for Burglary
SAUSALITO —When one mistake with the law leads to another several times in succession problems begin mounting up. Such is the case for a man detained for a stolen license plate and arrested on a warrant for burglary.
Danny Turner, 40 of Rodeo, has been arrested at least six times since 2018. His most recent arrest and first-time arrest in Marin County happened on July 3.
An automated license plate scanner detected a stolen license plate while Turner and a companion were passing through Sausalito. The plate was reported stolen a few months ago in Solano County.
The scanner generated an alert and an officer was dispatched to intercept a Lexus. It was located a short time later in a parking lot with Turner and one other person sitting inside.
However, the problem was not limited to the purloined license plate. It seems the vehicle had not been legally registered for the last four years.
Furthermore, while checking the identification of the occupants the officer learned that Turner had an outstanding arrest warrant. It concerned a burglary case in San Mateo County.
Turner was subsequently handcuffed and arrested for burglary (PC 460 B) and his Lexus was impounded. His passenger was released and left to find another way home.
Turner’s string of problems with the law started in Contra Costa County in 2018.
More arrests followed in Sacramento and Santa Clara counties, where Turner was arrested for burglary, conspiracy and receiving stolen property in 2019.
