Seven suspects arrested, identified in yesterday's home invasion robberies.

Sheriff’s Detectives have arrested three more suspects in yesterday’s home invasion robberies in Petaluma. Shortly after 3:00 AM yesterday morning three residences in the 100 and 200 block of Eugenia Drive were robbed at gunpoint by African American men looking for marijuana. Homeowners in these residences were tied up and one was pistol-whipped. Thankfully, none of the occupants were seriously injured. None of the residences had anything to do with the cultivation or sales of marijuana.


Officers from the Petaluma Police Department spotted the suspects’ vehicles, a white minivan and a silver Volkswagon Passat leaving the area. When they attempted a traffic stop, the suspects led them on a vehicle pursuit to Novato. The white minivan stopped on the side of the freeway near the San Marin exit. Five African American men fled the car and one was apprehended a short distance away after knocking on the front door of a homeowner asking to call an Uber. This suspect was identified as Ledarrell Javon Crockett, 28-years-old out of Winston-Salem North Carolina.


At the Novato Costco, the Volkswagon Passat was located and three more men were taken into custody but a woman escaped before officers arrived. These suspects were identified as Chrisshawn Denardray Beal, 20 of Winston-Salem NC, Melvin Corbin, 19 of Richmond VA, and Jaray Day-Shawn Simmons, 28 of Winston-Salem NC.


At around 7:00 PM three more men were arrested at SFO Airport as they were trying to board a flight back to the East Coast. These suspects were identified as 22-year-old Nakia Robert Lydell Jones, 20-year-old Romello Shamar Jones and 21-year-old Siddiq Jafar Abdullah, all from Richmond VA.


All seven men have been booked into the Sonoma County Jail on charges of robbery of an inhabited dwelling, burglary, false imprisonment, kidnapping and conspiracy. They all being held on $1 million dollar bail with the exception of Beal who has a no bail warrant out of North Carolina.


Two more suspects, an African American man and an African American woman are outstanding and are still being sought by Sheriff’s Detectives.
