From the San Ramon Police Department:

During the morning hours of March 26, 2019, the San Ramon Police Department responded to a construction site at the Faria Preserve Development for a report of a commercial burglary.  The suspect(s) broke the locks off of multiple storage containers at the site and stole power tools, home construction hardware, and a dump trailer.  A suspect vehicle was identified as an older model maroon GMC Suburban.

On March 30, 2019, East Bay Regional Parks Police were alerted to an auto burglary at Las Trampas Regional Park, where the suspect(s) smashed the window of a parked vehicle and stole personal items from the vehicle, to include credit cards.   A maroon GMC Suburban was seen in the area during the burglary. The suspect(s) in the Las Trampas auto burglary used the victim’s credit cards at retail locations in San Ramon.    

After an extensive investigation, Ronald Stephens, 28 years old, from Concord, was identified as the suspect in both burglaries.  Stephens was associated with the maroon GMC Suburban.  A search of Stephens’ residence in Concord resulted in the recovery of the stolen dump trailer from Faria Preserve and additional stolen property.

Stephens was arrested for possession of stolen property, possession of a controlled substance, and for a felony probation violation.  Additional charges are pending.  

Stephens is believed to be associated with numerous other theft related cases in the area.  If there are any other local law enforcement agencies that have similar cases, please contact Detective Fajeau at (925) 973-2700.


  1. Nice job, Law Enforcement and alert citizens!….but the “California System” will have him back out on the street again next week, if not by tomorrow. He’s already out on parole when he’s doing these crimes now. When Governor Brown released thousands of people from the jails trying to save money, and thinking it was unfair that criminals were so crowded….he and the ‘social justice liberals’ forgot all about the innocent citizens who would then be victimized and lose possessions and money plus their sense of safety to these things. Lock ’em up and keep them there .

  2. Thank you SRPD.

    If you google “Ronald Stephens” Concord, you’ll see the same guy was arrested less than 2 years ago for selling stolen property. California needs to do a better job of keeping thieves locked up in jail where they belong or else we all suffer.
