Armed Robbery In Orinda Sunday

Clayton, Danville, armed robbers follow business owner home.

Police are searching for two subjects a Don Gabriel Way resident said entered the rear door of his home at approximately 2:40 p.m. Sunday, brandished a gun, and left with electronics and other items.

Air and ground units were searching area streets for sign of the pair or a vehicle possibly used in the robbery.

The suspects are described as two African American males. One was wearing a green florescent construction vest, black colored hoodie jacket w/red stripe, black pants and white shoes. The other was dressed in a baby-blue colored hoodie jacket, black pants, and black and white shoes. The vehicle they were driving is a silver colored Mercedes Benz.

Anyone with any information on this incident is asked to contact Sheriff’s Office dispatch at (925) 646-2441. For any tips, email: tips@so.cccounty.us or call (866) 846-3592 to leave an anonymous voice message.

The suspects reportedly left the residence the same way they entered, taking a laptop, watch and other items.

An “Eagle” helicopter from the East Bay Regional Park District joined in the search soon after the robbery was reported. There was no immediate word of injuries.


  1. Thank you for your timely alerts! We had a helicopter sitting on our house and didn’t know what was going on until your flashes started arriving!!!

  2. I’m glad no one was hurt. Was the rear door unlocked? Come on people, lock your doors. No one is “working” on Sunday with a green vest.

    • Why do you think it’s the victim’s fault he got robbed at gunpoint? If it’s now a requirement to lock up one’s HOME in the early afternoon on a SUNDAY in the crime ridden slum called Orinda, then the battle against barbarism has already been lost, and blaming the victims shows an extreme lack of compassion. BTW, breaking into a typical locked exterior door that is not the front door is very easy.

      • It’s not a “requirement” to lock your door but it’s a good idea to keep someone from walking in with a GUN and robbing you. Lamorindans notoriously leave their doors unlocked, and it’s stupid. And bad guys have been targeting Lamorinda long enough. Time to wise up. Not “getting it” shows an extreme lack of COMMON SENSE. Blaming the victim isn’t pulled out of thin air. There’s a reason for it, and I just explained it to you.

        • I refer you to Exhibit B in the Lamorinda Merchants story, the undamaged lock adjacent the shattered door jamb. That lock must have slowed the burglar an extra 20 to 30 seconds…

        • It was just a theory before, but after the victim blaming I can confidently say that Maurice is DEFINITELY Danielle. You’re not fooling anybody lady 😉

  3. A lot of the crooks lately are driving Mercedes-Benzes. I guess crime does pay with the new ‘nobody goes to jail anymore’ policies in the state.

  4. We’re just as vulnerable as everyone else. They seem to come every six months or so. Glad the homeowner wasn’t hurt.
