SFPD Makes Arrests in Auto Burglary Series 19-152
On Tuesday, December 17, 2019, at approximately 7:24 PM San Francisco Police officers from Richmond Station responded to the 5700 block of Geary Boulevard on a report of an auto burglary. Officers met with witnesses who said they observed two male suspects taking items out through the broken window of a vehicle. The witnesses said the two suspects fled in a waiting vehicle. Officers determined that the stolen items were in the area of Leavenworth and North Point Streets. Officers broadcast the description of the suspect vehicle via radio to units in that area.
SFPD plainclothes officers assigned to Central Station located and followed the suspect vehicle. Officers deployed department issued spike strips in an effort to safely bring the suspect vehicle to a stop. The suspect vehicle came to a stop at Lombard and Taylor Streets. Four occupants fled the vehicle on foot. Multiple officers responded to the area and detained the four suspects. The suspects were identified as 29-year-old Antoine Videau of San Francisco, 24-year-old Pierre Vines of Vallejo, 21-year-old Delvon Carter of San Francisco, and 27-year-old Steven Mitchell of Rodeo, California.
Officers searched the suspect vehicle and located several cell phones, laptops, tablet computers, passports, bank cards, jewelry, gift cards, and medication. The investigation determined that the items had been reported stolen in multiple vehicle burglaries throughout the Bay Area including items from that were reported stolen less than an hour earlier on Geary Boulevard. In addition, four firearms were located during the arrest. A records check on the vehicle determined it had been reported stolen out of Stockton, California.
Videau, Vines, Carter and Mitchell were all booked at San Francisco County Jail on charges of burglary, conspiracy, receiving stolen property, vehicle theft, possession of burglary tools, possession of a firearm, possession of a loaded firearm in a vehicle, carrying a concealed firearm, vehicle registration fraud and resisting arrest.
