NOVATO, Calif. (BCN) — Police in Novato arrested a man on suspicion of burglary and possession of stolen property Friday, the department announced. Officers responded at about 6:30 p.m. to the 100 block of Roblar Drive after getting a report of a possible burglary in progress.

The caller said a man could be seen hopping a fence and taking items from storage buildings on the property. Police believed that the man was still hiding in the area, so they set up a perimeter and conducted a search of the area.
