Two apparent burglary attempts in Richmond on Tuesday resulted in the arrest of three suspects believed to have been involved in a series of robberies near the Richmond BART Station over a month ago, police said.

About 8 a.m. Tuesday, officers responded to the 5400 block of Brookwood Lane after a homeowner called saying he saw three males with masks enter his back yard. The suspects fled over the back fence after they saw the homeowner, police said.

About a half hour later, police were called to the 5000 block of Coach Drive about a victim who heard someone knock on her front door, then heard a loud crashing noise. The victim went to check and saw the dining room window had been broken and three males wearing ski masks. The suspects again fled in a parked older model white 4-door Lexus east toward Castro Ranch Road.

Hoping to intercept the suspects, a ​Richmond police motorcycle officers rode to Pinole Valley Road. Sure enough, he saw an older white 4-door Lexus travel westbound on on the road with three male occupants. The motorcycle officer followed the car on I-80 until several RPD units responded to assist.

After the car was stopped and the suspects were detained, they were positively identified by witnesses and arrested. A loaded firearm, stolen from a burglary a week prior, and ski masks were all located in the car, police said.

“It was later learned that these are the same suspects arrested in a string of robberies near the BART station approximately 1 ½ months ago,” police said.
