Pleasanton police officers arrested a man accused of committing a residential burglary in Danville last month.
Last Friday, police in Pleasanton arrested 38-year-old transient man Christopher Gary on a warrant for allegedly breaking into a Danville home in July. Danville police said they engaged several surrounding law enforcement agencies to assist in locating and arresting Gary.
Danville Police Chief Allan Shields said he was grateful for the efforts of Pleasanton’s officers, and credited the partnership the two agencies share -- along with Danville's partnership other police agencies in the area -- and with the community at-large, for the overall declining numbers of commercial and residential burglaries in the region.
“We are very fortunate in the San Ramon Valley to have strong relationships, both with our community, and with our fellow law enforcement agencies,” he said. “This has led to a very safe community for our residents.”
On their Facebook account, Danville police officials said that the number of commercial or residential burglaries has been declining steadily since a 2015 high of 119, and as of Tuesday, during the first six months of 2019 Danville has only seen 15 commercial or residential burglaries occur.
