PINOLE -- Four men who police say followed one botched burglary by attempting another one were arrested Thursday night, police said.
The quartet, two from Richmond and two from Oakland, had just left a burglary on Wright Avenue about 7 p.m. when a Pinole police officer investigating an earlier burglary attempt spotted their car and pulled them over with gun drawn.
Domain Mulder, 20 and Christian Nealy, 19, both from Richmond, and Damauria Johnson, 18 and Kamani Holmes, 19, both of Oakland, surrendered without incident and were arrested on suspicion of burglary and possession of stolen property, Pinole police Cmdr. Pete Janke said.
Earlier, the four had targeted a house on Simas Avenue, Janke said. Witnesses told police that the group pulled up in front of the house in a burgundy Volvo not familiar in the neighborhood and that two men got out. One knocked on the front door while another jumped over a fence to the backyard, Janke said.
Shortly thereafter, a house alarm interrupted them, and the two jumped back in the Volvo and fled south on Pinole Valley Road, Janke said. They were caught a short time later on Wright Avenue, and officers found property in the vehicle that was tied to other burglaries in Pinole.
Mulder, Nealy and Johnson were being held in lieu of $150,000 bail at the Martinez Detention Facility, while Holmes was being held without bail at the same jail because of a parole violation, police said.
