Attempted Bike Theft/Possession of Burglary Tools – Walnut Creek Station

5/19/14 1246 hours

A BART CSO on-viewed a male suspect attempting to cut a cable lock and take a bike from the Walnut Creek Station. A station agent confronted the male and he ran from the station. The CSO followed the suspect (from a safe distance) and provided updates on his location until he disappeared into the bushed at Riviera Dr. and Pringle Ave. BART and Walnut Creek Officers arrived on scene and set up a perimeter to contain the suspect. A K-9 officer spotted a male that emerged from the bushes and he was detained. The CSO and the station agent responded to the officer’s location. The station agent positively identified the male as the person that attempted to cut a cable lock off a bike. A K-9 officer conducted a search of the area where the male was last seen and discovered bags that contained merchandise from the two stores in Walnut Creek. From the suspect’s description, Walnut Creek advised the male possibly just committed two commercial burglaries in their jurisdiction. Employees from both stores responded to the scene and identified the male as the person that took merchandise from their store and the identified merchandise that was found by the K-9 officer. The male was placed under arrest by Walnut Creek PD for commercial burglary and possession of stolen property. BART PD Detectives responded to question the male regarding the crimes committed on BART. The males’ identity will be confirmed at the jail. BART PD will seek a warrant for pending charges of attempted theft and possession of burglary tools. Detectives will follow-up with this case.

I’ve been taking BART for years, and thank God I never have to deal with any of this crap. It’s not the NY subway. I have had a few people touch me, but it was due to overcrowding.

Dorothy June 2, 2014 at 4:46 PM

If BART police are suppose to be real police, why do they need a sergeant’s approval to arrest a person?

Dwight Schrute June 2, 2014 at 5:12 PM

Today my mind was blown…the CSO not only thwarted a bike theft, but then they also followed the perp and had “real police” arrest the suspect…thank you, I applaud thee (start slow clap)

gonzo June 2, 2014 at 5:22 PM

doesn’t surprise me I’ve seen worse such as a beating, a robbery, and a woman performing sexual acts on train lol i almost died

@Dorothy June 2, 2014 at 5:45 PM

The real question is, why does somebody ask that same question every feakin’ week?

Victim Blamer June 2, 2014 at 5:47 PM

Two things people should take a way from this:

1) Don’t drive a Honda (or at least don’t park it at the BART station).
2) Don’t lock your bike with a cable lock and expect it to be there when you return.

Jojo potato June 2, 2014 at 6:06 PM

(From a safe distance?). Way to go heroes, can’t even confront a bike thief. I want my money back from supporting these losers.

Smart,Goodlooking&Debonaire June 2, 2014 at 6:11 PM

I want my taxes increased so we can pay BART workers higher salaries and benefits. They clearly are working too hard.

That Guy June 2, 2014 at 6:30 PM

@Jojo potato, you do realize that the CSO is a civilian police employee, not a cop right? I don’t know if anyone recalls, but a few years back the Contra Costa Community College Police had one of their CSO’s get shot in the parking lot interrupting a burglary in process. A safe distance seems sensible to me, but of course this is Claycord, where everyone likes to talk about how if they were allowed to have a CCW none of this crime would happen. The fact of the matter is most people talk a big game, but would not even think about putting themselves out there like this CSO.

alex June 2, 2014 at 6:39 PM

So the same guys come every day and steal bikes. amazing. cant we get 1 undercover cop catch them in act? oh wait i heard police prefer to do real crime stopping by giving tickets for doing 10 mph over the limit.

kinda makes me want to go undercover myself, and catch them stealing bikes. but then again if i touch them they will arrest ME!. this is why no one bother to stop crime.

PhilthyPHRESH June 2, 2014 at 6:46 PM

Lol why sit at Bart smoking weed, with a meth bag, and a felony warrant.?? I think 30 days ban for rubbing one out in public is way leinient. How about a lifetime ban. I ride Bart, everyday is a new adventure.

Smart,Goodlooking&Debonaire June 2, 2014 at 7:06 PM

I hope every victim is a democrat-voting liberal/progressive. It just would be so …well…apropos. Cheers!

Can't Police just say 3:45 PM June 2, 2014 at 7:32 PM

rather than 1545 Hours. We know they’re pros, they don’t have to rub our noses in it….

the Shi ite June 2, 2014 at 8:13 PM

For crying out loud!!! Claycord takes forever to load – At least add the Autolock Pro to the site and give some people piece of mind. Nothing is 100%, but criminals are lazy (obviously) and they’ll move on to the next victim.

Anon June 2, 2014 at 8:42 PM

Make Yhe PhfatTired a BART cop.

I wonder if I can connect my cable lock..... June 2, 2014 at 8:45 PM

to the 1,000 Volt DC third rail. I wouldn’t mind sacrificing a bike to incinerate some Thieving Maggot.

Weird June 2, 2014 at 9:12 PM

Very interesting that all the cars stolen have been older —1992 – 2000 —models. Are they easier to steal, or just more desirable that all the newfangled stuff they’re marketing today?

same ol same ol June 2, 2014 at 9:32 PM

MrDuckyWucky, go suck an egg.

Justin June 2, 2014 at 9:33 PM


There’s more of a market for the parts. Stolen cars are rarely just resold – they get stripped down and the parts sold separately. Older cars are more in need of parts and you can ultimately get way more money out of the theft.

@ Dorothy June 2, 2014 at 10:58 PM

It’s not that unusual. The Contra Costa County Sheriff’s Office does the same thing while the CHP has to ask permission to impound a vehicle for 30 days. Every agency has it’s own quirks- doesn’t make them less of a police agency. .

The Mamba June 3, 2014 at 7:03 AM

What’s with stealing cars that 20 years old? Also, BART needs to do more to protect patron’s bikes. That means lockers, cages, whatever.

NonExistentPatrol June 3, 2014 at 7:47 AM

So where are all the BART cops? Where are the security cameras? Where is all the security stuff we BART riders pay for? With so many car and bike thefts, you’d think they’d be out there working to find the sludge that does this.

anon June 3, 2014 at 10:09 AM

“while the CHP has to ask permission to impound a vehicle for 30 days. ”

Prove that to me

Ricardoh June 3, 2014 at 10:53 AM

A guy is caught masturbating and exposing himself on a BART train and is given a thirty day suspension for riding BART? Thats it? The world has flipped its lid.

Random Task June 3, 2014 at 12:34 PM

wow so the strike did wonders for security and now everyone feels that bart and the unions working in conjunction with each other was the right thing to do just look at the headlines….all is well in demifornia …..criminals rights are at the forefront as the tax payers foot the bill to support the dems future criminal behavior……….wooot

@ anon 23 June 3, 2014 at 4:52 PM

listen to a scanner….

Anon June 3, 2014 at 8:37 PM

Disband worthless BART c(fl)ops.
