Stolen Vehicle Recovered and Handgun Seized in San Rafael

San Rafael’s newly installed flock safety cameras played a crucial role in the recovery of a stolen vehicle and the seizure of a handgun, according to the San Rafael Police Department. In the early hours of Saturday, a white van, previously reported stolen in Novato, was captured by public safety cameras driving through Downtown San Rafael. The van was eventually located in a business parking lot on B Street, but the driver remained unidentified. Several individuals were observed near the van, but none were behind the wheel. Moments later, suspects were seen entering the van, prompting the police to establish a perimeter, halt the vehicle, and apprehend the driver without incident.

Further investigations revealed that the driver was unaware of the van’s stolen status. During a search of the vehicle, law enforcement discovered and confiscated a revolver, which is currently under investigation to determine its origin and potential involvement in other crimes. The driver was subsequently booked into Marin County Jail on charges of auto theft.
