Contra Costa Sheriff’s Deputies Arrest Two People for Burglary

November 15, 2012 9:44 am · 18 comments

On Wednesday at about 2:22PM, Deputy Sheriffs were dispatched to the 3100 block of Playa Court in unincorporated Lafayette regarding an interrupted burglary, and they caught two suspects in the process!

The following information is from the Contra Costa Sheriff’s Office:

The homeowner returned home and saw two suspects flee from the rear of his home. Deputies set up a perimeter and started a search for the suspects. A police K-9 was used in the search. Lafayette and Pleasant Hill police assisted.

One suspect was located at about 2:50PM on a nearby hillside and the second suspect was located near Taylor Boulevard at about 3:36 PM. Most of the stolen items were recovered.

Both suspects were arrested for burglary and conspiracy:


  • 20-year-old Sean James of Walnut Creek.
  • 17-year-old male booked into juvenile hall.

Bail for Sean James has been set at $100,000.

Mayor? Is there a reason you arent posting the suspects that broke into my home? November 15, 2012 at 9:55 AM

I’ve tried to contact the police regarding the home burglary, but haven’t been able to get a response.

Good job Lafayette Police! Very sad to see one of the thugs came out of Walnut Creek.

@ Nutcreek frontier and mika

FYI, it was not Lafayette police but rather the deputies of the Contra Costa Sheriff’s office that received the call and captured the first suspect. (Unincorporated Lafayette is serviced by the Sheriffs Office). Plus, the 17 year old juvenile is from BAYPOINT, not Claycord.

Jason–isn’t that the guy with the machete?

They are both originally from Bay Point. They are cousins. The juvenile still lives there. The twenty year old moved to walnut creek to get away from that kind of influence and he is actually a computer science major.

Playa Court, they were probably looking for the Purple People on Purson Lane.

LOCK EM UP…..Hopefully they will learn.

If they repeat – send em to Obama Camp. He’ll save them….. 🙂

It was our home that was broken into, and YES THEY WERE CAUGHT!
The CC Sheriff’s Dept was incredible! They did not stop until they found them, bringing in a canine unit and even got one of them to show us where a lot of our “stuff” was hidden! Just so you know… I left my home at 1:45 and by 2:05pm when my husband just happened to come home, they already had our home torn apart. They had parked down the block and jumped our fence to get into our home. We have now formed a neighborhood watch and with most of us working at home they will hopefully never come back. I still have lots of items gone but thankful it was only “stuff”.
