San Francisco Police Officers Make Arrests in Taraval Burglary 19-096

On July 22nd, 2019 at approximately 2:49 PM, Taraval district police officers responded to a burglary in progress call at a residence on the 1500 block of 44th Avenue.  

Upon arrival, officers noticed a gray Ford Fusion parked with its engine running.  An officer contacted the driver of the vehicle who was later identified as 20 year-old Vallejo resident Tristen Stelly and questioned him as to who he was waiting for.

While one officer was talking with Stelly, other officers saw two suspects running out the front door of the victim residence.  The first suspect saw the officers and dropped a semi-automatic firearm before retreating into the residence.  Officers saw a second suspect exiting the home armed with a firearm and a flat pry bar. The officers ordered the suspect to drop the firearm and the pry bar.  He complied and was taken into custody.  The two firearms and the pry bar were seized and secured, along with a third firearm found on the steps next to the home. 

The first suspect attempted to flee out of the back door of the home to a getaway car, but he was quickly apprehended.  

Twenty-two year-old San Francisco resident Jose Banos-Gomez was charged with burglary, conspiracy, possession of stolen property, being a felon in possession of a firearm and resisting arrest.

Twenty year-old San Francisco resident Frank English was charged with burglary, conspiracy, possession of burglary tools and possession of a loaded firearm.
