Burglars Armed With a Gun Break into Homes in Brentwood

A couple of residential burglary suspects brought a large handgun to the scene of a break-in in the East Bay suburbs. The two men are suspected of targeting a number of homes. Lieutenant Walter O’Grodick with the Brentwood Police Department showed surveillance images of a pair of men who allegedly committed a series of three residential burglaries on Monday between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m.

One burglary in the Deer Ridge neighborhood and two in Shadow Lake. Lt. O’Gronick says it has been a while since he has seen burglary spree in Brentwood, especially one involving a firearm. “The suspect that’s holding the weapon is very alarming and very upsetting for not only the police department to see these images but residents as well,” Lt. O’Gronick said. One of those concerned residents is Nigel Jesson, who has two security cameras.

In fact, Jesson says most of his neighbors have security cameras. When it comes to protecting his home he takes it to the next level. “We do have surveillance,” Jesson said. “My house is geared up. Everything from hearing windows crack to body heat sensors. I have cameras on the front of my house and on the back of my house. Yeah, we take it really seriously.” He says some of his neighbors are thinking about leveling up their home protection on a different scale.

“My neighbors are talking about getting firearms themselves,” Jesson said. Lt. O’Grodnick says luckily no one was home during these burglaries. He is asking for the community’s help to track these two men down. They are described as either Hispanic, Asian or Pacific Island males in their 20’s. There is no suspect vehicle information. “If you know these suspects or if you see these suspects in public do not approach,” Lt. O’Grodnick said. “Call 9-1-1 or contact your local police department immediately.”
