Novato Auto Burglary Suspects Arrested in Mill Valley

A witness provided a description of the suspects' vehicle, and three people were arrested on Highway 101 near Mill Valley. Incidents were reported at Hamilton Marketplace and Vintage Oaks in Novato.

Three San Francisco men who were pulled over near Mill Valley face several felony charges related to a rash of auto burglaries Tuesday in Novato shopping center parking lots, Novato police said.

A reported burglary at 3:30 p.m. prompted a response from several officers to a spot near the Old Navy store at the Vintage Oaks Shopping Center, Lt. Jennifer Welch said Wednesday. A witness provided a description of the suspects' vehicle, and it matched what was seen in previous burglaries elsewhere in the shopping center and at Hamilton Marketplace, a few miles to the south of Vintage Oaks.

A Marin County Sheriff's deputy spotted the vehicle on southbound Highway 101 and made a traffic stop near Mill Valley. The men inside were identified as the suspects and arrested.

Those arrested were: Baxter Demaree Bradley, 20; Kevin LaMarr Lewis Jr., 22; and Anthony Galasi, 22. They face charges of auto burglary, conspiracy to commit a crime and possession of stolen property.
