GREENFIELD — Police have arrested two of a dozen suspects involved in the burglary of a Greenfield marijuana facility.
According to Greenfield Police Department, 12 suspects showed up in three vehicles at a marijuana facility on Cherry Avenue on March 21.
Security staff called 911, and Greenfield officers arrived on scene within minutes, preventing product from being taken. The suspects fled in the three vehicles in different directions.
Greenfield officers pursued one vehicle, and with assistance of the Salinas Police Department, California Highway Patrol and the Monterey County Sheriff’s Office, the vehicle was safely stopped just north of Salinas.
Five suspects fled, but officers and Salinas PD K-9 were able to take Mekhi Bryce Goodspeed, 20, of Oakland, into custody.
“Our investigation didn’t stop there,” Greenfield Police said.
Detectives identified Roman Jibre Penn, a 25-year-old Oakland resident, and his vehicle, as being involved in the burglary. A statewide BOL (be on the lookout) was broadcasted and an arrest warrant for Penn was issued.
On March 23, the Pleasanton Police Department located Penn and his vehicle at a shopping center and took him into custody.
Greenfield detectives drove to Pleasanton to take custody of Penn and transported him to the Monterey County Jail, where he was booked on felony burglary charges.
“Thanks to the many agencies that helped and proved that team work makes the dream work,” Greenfield Police said.
Anyone with more information or who knows the remaining suspects are asked to contact Detective Sgt. Mattke at 831-233-1302.
