Petaluma police arrested a Marin City man Sunday who allegedly stole marijuana during a drug deal. Terence Baker, of Vallejo, and his father, James Baker, of New Mexico, met a man known only as Jordan in a Safeway parking lot around 11 a.m. The Bakers intended to sell eight ounces of marijuana worth $1,200, Acting Sgt. Ron Klein said. When Pierre Saucer, 30, of Marin City, and another man contacted Terence Baker, the second man grabbed a backpack containing the marijuana and ran toward the Addison Ranch apartments on Maria Drive, Klein said. The unidentified suspect fell and tossed the backpack to Saucer who ran toward the apartments, Klein said.

Police contacted Saucer, who no longer had the backpack, on the other side of the apartments, which were under construction, Klein said. Police recovered the backpack in the construction area. Saucer did not reveal the identity of his accomplice, and he was booked into the Sonoma County jail under $50,000 bail for robbery and conspiracy, Klein said. The second suspect, who was described as a Hispanic male approximately 25 years old with black hair tied in a ponytail, is still at large, Klein said.
