Dragnet In Walnut Creek For Suspected Carjacker, Burglar Wednesday


Various police agencies combined resources in a widespread search across Walnut Creek Wednesday after a man allegedly burglarized at least one residence, carjacked one car and allegedly stole another – managing to elude police air and ground units for at least an hour before he was caught.

Police later said 23-year-old Sean White of Pittsburg was the man who went on an afternoon crime spree around Walnut Creek on Wednesday, breaking into a garage and threatening an occupant  with a hammer, carjacking someone else, then finally stealing a landscaper’s van before being arrested.

White was eventually tased and taken into custody shortly before 3 p.m.

He is suspected of burglarizing a home in the 1400 block of Treat Boulevard, carjacking a Toyota later found abandoned in the city, and taking a white Econoline work truck.

The man is also suspected of allegedly following a woman into her garage on Birch Drive at approximately 1:30 p.m., carrying a hammer and reportedly attempting to take her keys.


  1. Glad to see the LEO response was swift and resulted in suspect being arrested. Hopefully none of the victims sustained injury. Everyone stay vigilant.

  2. Looks like he had just come out of the hospital too because he still had the electrode pads on him. A real winner!

  3. When your young and have the paunch of a middle aged man it’s never a good idea to dress it up with ink.
