Novato police have arrested one person in connection with a residential burglary that occurred Wednesday and are looking for a second suspect, a police sergeant said. The burglary was reported at 10:30 a.m. in the 200 block of San Luis Way. Responding officers saw two males fleeing the area, Sgt. Dan Jenner said.
One of them, identified as Cody Lawson, 20, of Novato, was caught in the backyard of a nearby home, Jenner said.
The second suspect eluded authorities despite an extensive search by Novato police, the California Highway Patrol and Marin County Sheriff’s Office, Jenner said. He was still at large this morning. Lawson was arrested on suspicion of burglary, resisting arrest, trespassing, possession of stolen property and a probation violation, Jenner said.
Police are identifying the owners of the stolen property they recovered from Lawson, and are trying to determine if the two suspects are responsible for other burglaries in the area, Jenner said.
