Thanks to an alert reader we shifted our attention to Wiget Lane and Comista Drive yesterday, Wednesday, upon hearing of a “small army” of police converging on the area.
Neighbors and passersby said a man appeared to have been taken into custody and police have confirmed their presence in the neighborhood as well as the arrest.
It turns out a resident in the 900 block of Wiget called police to report a man inside her home – definitely uninvited.
That “small army” of police arrived and Randy Richards, age and hometown unknown, was taken into custody on suspicion of residential burglary, possession of stolen property, having an outstanding warrant as well as for a probation violation.
Mr. Richards was removed from the neighborhood and given a ride to county jail, courtesy of Walnut Creek PD.
