Two Auto Burglars nabbed by EPD at Avenue 64 Garage

1 min read

An alert Emeryville resident disrupted a rash of auto burglaries last night. The resident phoned the Emeryville Police Department to report two males seen inside the parking garage of the Avenue 64 parking garage peering into vehicles.

Emeryville Police Officers arrived on the scene about 11:35 p.m and both suspects concealed themselves behind cars inside the garage. They were ordered out and both ran from the Officer and K-9 unit. The K-9 unit apprehended one suspect and the second suspect ran south on Christie Ave. The fleeing suspect was captured without injury in the 6000 block of Christie Ave.

Officers located nine vehicles with shattered windows. Each vehicle had been ransacked.

Suspects Justin M Bingham (18) and Kenyon L McTear (19), both of Oakland, were arrested and charged with nine counts of auto burglary and one with resisting arrest. One suspect was transported to Highland Hospital for minor puncture wound treatment. Both were transported to county jail for booking.

Auto Burglaries are up in Emeryville 73% for the year.

  1. Good work, EPD! Maybe this is the same crew that broke into my truck Tuesday night, shattering a $250 window and stealing nothing, because there’s nothing to steal in my truck after the last two times it’s been broken into this year.

    • The same thing happened to a bunch of cars parked near Touchstone Gym on Potter Street in Berkeley. Windows were broken and nothing was taken.

  2. Yeah! Thanks to the both alert citizen who phoned EPD and then EPD for nabbing these guys. Two down and hopefully, more to come.
