A 27 year old Walnut Creek man is in custody following an early morning residential burglary in Danville Wednesday morning. At approximately 6 a.m., Danville Police were called to a home on Savona Ct. on a report of a subject entering a home.

Danville Police Chief Allan Shields said the homeowner called 911 immediately, then gathered her family and fled the premises. When police arrived on scene, they spotted a suspect identified as Saleem Jaser, 27, of Walnut Creek exiting the home with stolen items in hand. Jaser was taken into custody and booked in the Martinez Detention Facility on charges of burglary, robbery, trespassing, child endangerment, grand theft, possession of stolen property, and prowling. He’s being held on $485,000 bail.

Chief Shields said Jaser is also being questioned in connection with another residential burglary in Lafayette.

Shields praised the quick thinking and fast actions of the homeowner, which led to the arrest.

“This was a great result,” Shields said,”The homeowner kept their cool, acted swiftly, and as a result a criminal is now off the streets.”


    • @Pamela – Saw that. We’re presuming he was charged because his presence/actions (allegedly) presented a danger to the children, who were quickly grabbed up and shuttled to a neighboring home while he remained inside. Bowing to those with the PD/JD degrees for insight/info!

  1. Just saying thank you for this valuable site.
    I am forever grateful to the Lafayette and Danville Police Departments.
    They are doing such a great job and I am happy for a site that recognizes
    their brilliant work.

    Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

    • @Rae – Nice to have you with us, Rae. The police don’t always love and appreciate us (who does?) BUT we always recognize and appreciate professionalism and hard work on the “front lines.”
