Tiburon police say they have strong leads in robbery, burglaries

The armed robbery of a Tiburon teen and rash of home burglaries this summer, with the latest last weekend, has put residents on alert, pressure on the Police Department to find the culprits and prompted calls for more license-plate cameras in town.


Tiburon Police Chief Ryan Monaghan took to community website Nextdoor.com on Aug. 24, saying the department has strong leads — which appear to include potential DNA evidence — but they need more concrete evidence before they can make any arrests.


In the June 26 robbery case, Monaghan said the department has been working with the Marin County Sheriff’s Office, but while he praised the progress, he posted no new public details.


Monaghan said the department also has “strong investigative leads” on five burglaries that took place between June 17 and July 7, but that all the cases are still open and no charges have been filed.
