Police Arrest Burglar Suspected of Ransacking a Miller Ave. Business

Police are investigating if Andrew Rovers, 23 is connected to other burglaries in Mill Valley. He was arrested after the windows were smashed and items taken at Bamboo and More.

A man found bleeding from his arm at 3:30 a.m. Monday in front of the 7-Eleven on Miller Ave. was arrested and charged for burglary after police discovered a nearby business had been broken into and ransacked.

Andrew Rovers, 23, was arrested on suspicion of burglary, possession of stolen property and possession of burglary tools. He was booked into the Marin County Jail.

Rovers appeared to be intoxicated when Police Officers Kyle Maxwell and Rob Dehner approached him, according to Detective Sgt. Paul Wrapp.

Around the same time, Sgt. Jacob Cuadrez responded to a report of glass breaking about a block away on 305 Miller. The business listed at that location is Bamboo and More. Wrapp said the windows had been smashed, the door damaged, and property removed.

“Based upon the physical evidence discovered, Mill Valley Police determined Andrew Rovens to have committed the commercial burglary,” Wrapp said.

Police have seen a rash of commercial and residential burglaries in the last two months. They’re investigating if Rovers was connected to any of the other recent burglaries in Mill Valley.

Anyone with any further information may contact the Mill Valley Police.
