Two suspects were arrested after allegedly stealing from a business in Walnut Creek’s Broadway Plaza, according to police.

The suspects, identified by police as Daryl Bauer and Frank McCaslin, were taken into custody after being chased down by an officer, police said.

After a search of their property, police say the officer located burglary tools and stolen merchandise.

Both Bauer and McCaslin were arrested for shoplifting and conspiracy, and Bauer was also arrested for possession of burglary tools.

Both were transported to the county jail in Martinez.

Both were transported to the county jail in Martinez.

where they were abruptly apologized to by the mayor
for infringing on their sanctuary rights and legalized theft passed by voters

a very sad day for people just doing what the dems want them to do

please set us a go fund me for these trodden sanctuary followers
as they cope with the pain and anguish of persecution
for just being sanctuary proud

That’s kind of a dumb comment. You absolutely know for sure that they’re Mexican and that they will be released by the mayor who actually has no power to do so! Everyone knows they need the governor to do that. Besides the fact that their names are not Juan and Carlos! 😂🤪👍🏻

Got news for you Radon . Names like Daryl and Frank are usually associated with non illegals .

While you are at it check out your use of capitals. Lot of us are starting sentences with them.

He’s been blaming people who aren’t here legally on every thread for years. I’m surprised he isn’t blaming them for the closing of the skating rink at Sun Valley.

rof course it is a totally stupid comment.

RT comments about “sanctuary” which he/she used three times, without any knowledge what sanctuary actually means. There is sanctuary laws with respect to property rights, all sanctuary actually means that undocumented individuals can communicate with authorities without fear of being handed over to ICE. As a matter of fact if you google you will find Rudi Giuliani defending sanctuary policy while Mayor of NYC.

Furthermore there is thinly veiled attack on Prop 47 which was very much pushed by Newt Gingrich and Rand :Paul among others and opposed by Diane Feinstein among others.

But for folks like RT it is all about R good, D bad.

Very true, Mayor “Rob” is busy helping his buddy set up a cannabis shop on Alhambra Ave and his other buddy with their “Field of Dreams”.

Of course, they didn’t put out any press releases regarding the cannabis shop……and then they want to Shame anyone who opposes its location with stupid remarks such as: “where were you people when this was in the planning stages”???? Uh, probably the same place they were when you all opposed the will of Martinez residents when you all decided to make it a ‘San c tuary’ city.

None of us residents should be putting up with 20 people living in a SINGLE FAMILY Residence!!!

Very nice work by WCPD. Likely to not be prosecuted by our crime loving DA.

Thank you. Fifteen years in law enforcement gives you a certain perspective.

Good job Walnut Creek PD.

Rotten little thieves. I am glad they did get arrested at least. I know we need to change the laws so these folks keep their cotton picking hands to themselves.

Mutts December 9, 2019 at 2:29 PM

Let’s keep all thieves in jail until after Christmas. Stupid, lazy despicable people. It’s what they deserve.

anon December 9, 2019 at 2:29 PM

“I am glad they did get arrested at least.”
Prop 47 will happen
this will happen more as they days go by
don’t forget prop 57 & AB 109
vote like your life depends on it

I love it, book ’em dano!

After the Apple Store thefts and some of the smash and grabs, I just sort of stayed away. But, I’m very impressed with how WCPD are right on crime in the shopping areas, so I guess I can go back. My favorite place to shop and they have relaxed some of the parking restrictions.

Somehow Broadway Plaza has been able to hire their own personal police officer, very nice. But, I’m not sure that it’s legal.

Broadway Plaza pays the City of Walnut Creek the cost for one or more officers per annum.

It’s a win-win.

Those are probably not latino names but may be “A. American” names.I’ve never heard of a grab and run by caucasians.

I am I said December 10, 2019 at 1:22 AM

You sure sound like an idiot.

Thank you for posting their mugshots, LOL!!!

Please just keep these scumbags behind bars. I can only hope they stole more than $950 otherwise ‘Catch and Release’ applies. Go WCPD!

Alex December 10, 2019 at 7:18 AM

Thanks for the Facebook link. looks
like it put all those illegal commentors in their place. These people are trash

It’s OK with me if someone chooses to make zero contribution to society. However, we should not have to finance their chosen lifestyle.

commoncents December 10, 2019 at 10:24 AM

There’s a bunch of people like RT who blame every crime on Illegals or “people over the hill.”

Amy Hodges December 10, 2019 at 9:22 PM

Bet neither one is a resident of Walnut Creek.
