San Rafael, CA – April 5, 2012. Three young San Rafael men are in custody for a San Rafael burglary case and they have been linked to numerous other burglaries and vandalisms committed during the past two months.
Yesterday, School Resource Officer Cpl. Roy Leon was at Terra Linda High School investigating the burglary of the school’s “snack shack.” The snack shack, a conex storage container used to store candy and snacks sold at athletic events, was broken into and vandalized over the weekend of March 23rd. Food, cash and supplies totaling $180.00 were taken and the box sustained extensive damage. Cpl. Leon received information that a 16 year old TLHS student may have been involved. The male student was interviewed and admitted to the burglary. Further investigation implicated two of his friends as accomplices, one who is currently a senior at the school and the other a TLHS graduate. They were interviewed by San Rafael detectives and all three admitted involvement in numerous burglaries and vandalisms in the Terra Linda, Marinwood, and Santa Venetia neighborhoods. The trio was arrested for the school burglary and additional charges will soon follow.
Kyle Collins, 19, and Kyle McGauley, 18, were arrested for burglary and vandalism. A search of McGauley’s car produced a pellet gun and ammunition and resulted in the additional charges of bringing a weapon and ammunition on to school grounds for McGauley. Both adults were booked at Marin County Jail and their bail was set at $15,000. The juvenile was booked at Marin County Juvenile Hall on charges of burglary and vandalism.
