Police suspect a woman “yelling and screaming” in the street at 5:30 a.m. Wednesday had burglarized a Nelson Avenue home earlier that morning and was found on a bicycle she allegedly stole from the residence.
Veruschka Hedgeman, 34, of San Francisco, was arrested and charged with burglary and possession of stolen property. She also had a warrant for her arrest.
“It’s fairly uncommon to have burglaries occur at 5 a.m.,” said Mill Valley Police Det. Srgt. Paul Wrapp. They usually happen during the day when residents are at work.
Officer Joe Jordan arrived on the scene to check on Hedgeman’s welfare after police received a complaint about a disturbance in the area, and he determined she was responsible for stealing a bicycle and a tablet computer from a nearby home, according to the report. She was arrested with the stolen property in her possession.
There was no forced entry into the house and the door is believed to have been left unlocked, Wrapp said.
