San Rafael CA May 31 2011 Two Fairfax residents were arrested Friday afternoon at Northgate Mall for burglary, conspiracy to commit burglary and grand theft.
According to San Rafael police Sgt. David Cron, Kaitlyn Brierly, 18, was detained by mall security around 2:40 p.m. after attempting to exit Macy’s with stolen goods, primarily jewelry. Joseph Warner, 23, was then picked up in the parking lot in his truck by police officers.
Brierly and Warner cooperated with police, said Cron, and said they entered the store with the intent to steal jewelry and other items. A number of stolen goods were also found in Brierly’s possession. Warner, said Cron, also said they were committing burglary to fund their drug habits.
Both were booked into county jail and were each being held on $15,000 bail.
