Glen Ellen burglary suspect nabbed after chase

A suspect has been arrested in connection with a rash of vehicle burglaries in Glen Ellen at the end of May.

One weekend at the end of May, someone stole items from more than 20 unlocked vehicles parked in driveways on Trinity Road, Sylvia Drive and Bonnie Drive in Glen Ellen, and tried to steal a truck from a residence on Trinity Road, but crashed before he reached the street.

Wednesday, after a chase near Forestville, deputies arrested a suspect in the thefts, Zachary Joseph Mayers, 23, from Santa Rosa.

Sgt. Mike Raasch, with the Sheriff’s Property Crimes Unit, said Mayers was linked through physical evidence and possession of stolen property to a residential burglary, stolen vehicle, hit-and-run, vehicle tampering and possession of stolen property from the cases in the Glen Ellen area.

Raasch said an arrest warrant was issued for Mayers on Oct. 17.
