Press Release - Burglary Suspect In-Custody

On June 10th, 2017, at 04:28 hours, Martinez Police Officers responded to a report of a burglary in progress in the 800 block of Main St.  Upon arrival, a witness told officers a black male adult broke through the front glass door and made entry into the business.  The unknown suspect fled on foot just prior to the arrival of responding officers.  An extensive search was conducted but the suspect was not located.  

While conducting the investigation, officers viewed video surveillance of the burglary and identified a black male adult wearing what appeared to be a camouflage jacket breaking in through the front door of the business.  The suspect could be seen leaving the business moments before police arrived.

At 05:26 hours, Martinez Police Department (MPD) dispatch received a silent burglary alarm notification from a business located in the 1600 block of Alhambra Ave.  MPD officers arrived moments later and could see an individual matching the description of the suspect from the earlier burglary inside the business.   

MPD officers set up a perimeter around the business and when the suspect exited through a side door, he was taken into custody with the assistance of MPD K9 Brute.

The suspect was identified as Antioch resident Stanley Holton, 32 years old, and is currently on active felony probation for assault with a deadly weapon.  Holton was treated for minor injuries at the Contra Costa Regional Medical Center and booked into the Martinez Detention Facility for two (2) counts of felony burglary.  Holton’s bail was set at $200,000.
