Suspected serial burglar nabbed after Marin County search

An extensive manhunt in the Tomales area Monday for a suspected serial burglar ended late when Marin County deputies caught the man, reported Sonoma County sheriff's officials Tuesday.

At about 11:15 p.m. they arrested Tyrone Brennen, 27, of Oakland, on suspicion of four counts of commercial burglary in Sonoma County, said Sonoma sheriff's Sgt. Mike Raasch.

Detectives believe Brennen has been a one-man crime wave in recent months involving as many as 10 business burglaries in Sonoma County and three in Marin County.

The manhunt started at about 4 a.m. Monday after deputies discovered Diekmann's Bay store in Bodega Bay had been burglarized.

Sonoma deputies, believing the crime was the work of the serial burglar they'd been trying to catch, alerted Marin County that the burglar could be headed their way.
