When deputies arrived at the home in the Bret Harte area, MCSO says they saw the garage door propped open with a ladder. A suspect then fled the garage and got into a Comcast vehicle. He drove away with a deputy following.
The vehicle eventually took a shortcut on an off-ramp in Richmond and got stuck in thick brush. The driver, later identified as Ramirez, fled on foot and was arrested.
Ramirez was booked into the Marin County Jail on charges of burglary, possession of stolen property, stolen vehicle and evading arrest.
