Wanted San Francisco Fugitive Arrested in Atlanta, Georgia 22-057

On Friday December 11, 2020, investigators from the SFPD Burglary Unit along with officers from the SFPD Tactical Unit and the Field Operations Bureau served several search and arrest warrants in San Francisco, Vallejo, Oakland, Stockton and Carmichael. The warrants resulted in the arrest of several suspects wanted in connection with a series of armed burglaries in San Francisco’s Taraval and Ingleside Districts. In addition to the arrests, investigators located and seized several high-capacity firearms and several stolen items taken in the burglaries.

Among the warrants obtained was an arrest warrant for, then 28-year-old, Jamariea Newt of San Francisco for his role in the burglaries. Investigators developed information that Newt had fled California prior to the service of his arrest warrant. Since his flight from California, investigators from SFPD’s Community Violence Response Team (CVRT) worked alongside the San Francisco FBI Safe Street Task Force to locate Newt. In April 2022 a Federal Unlawful Flight to Avoid Prosecution Warrant was issued for Newt’s arrest.

On Thursday, April 21, 2022, the Atlanta FBI Safe Street Task Force and Fulton County Sheriff Office served arrest and search warrants related to Jamariea Newt in Atlanta, GA. Newt was taken into custody along with three other suspects. Newt was booked at Fulton County Jail for outstanding warrants and various weapons/firearms, drug trafficking, and participation in criminal street gang charges. (See attachment). 

This arrest is culmination of thorough and exhaustive policework between local, state and federal law enforcement agencies. It is a great example of our commitment to our community that we will locate and arrest those responsible for these violent crimes – no matter how long it takes. The SFPD would like to thank all law enforcement agencies that helped bring Mr. Newt to justice.

Newt’s extradition to San Francisco is pending the results of the investigation arising out of Fulton County.

While an arrest has been made these remain open investigations. Anyone with information about any of these incidents is asked to call the SFPD 24-hour tip line at 1-415-575-4444 or Text a Tip to TIP411 and begin the text message with SFPD. You may remain anonymous.
