A picture of the four perps was shown on the KTVU evening news tonight, They looked like the second string of the front four of the raiders. They looked like jail was where they belong.

UPDATE - Four Arrested in Connection with Home Invasion Robbery

On August 26, 2013 a Pleasanton resident, who had been gambling at a Bay Area casino, reported a home invasion robbery at his residence on Roselma Place in Pleasanton. Pleasanton Police Detectives worked closely with agents from the California Department of Justice Bureau of Gambling Control during the months-long investigation and identified four individuals believed to be responsible for the robbery.
On October 24, 2013 a large scale operation was carried out during which three search and arrest warrants were served in the City of Oakland and a fourth in the City of Hercules. SWAT teams from Oakland Police and Fremont Police, along with the East County Tactical Team, were deployed to assist detectives and agents at the four separate residences. Three individuals were arrested and booked into Santa Rita Jail on robbery charges. All three were taken into custody without incident by the SWAT teams. Arrested were 24 year-old Jakari Bolden of Oakland, 25 year-old Terrell Bailey of Oakland, and 30 year-old Thomas Stokes of Hercules.
On November 6, 2013 a fourth suspect, 20 year-old Myrick Rucker, was taken into custody from his residence in Antioch by the East County Tactical Team in concert with the Antioch Police, who were assisting Pleasanton Police Detectives and agents from the California Department of Justice Bureau of Gambling Control. Rucker was taken into custody without incident by the SWAT team. Rucker was also booked at Santa Rita Jail on robbery charges.
Serving felony arrest warrants, where crimes involve the use of firearms, will typically involve a SWAT team consisting of specially trained individuals. The Fremont and Oakland SWAT teams were instrumental in the operation, as were the members of the Livermore and Pleasanton Police Departments who make up the East County Tactical Team. The Hercules Police Department, the Antioch Police Department and the Livermore Police Department also assisted in the operation. Agents of the California Department of Justice Bureau of Gambling Control played a significant role in this investigation while collaborating with the Pleasanton Police Investigations Division.

I do not agree with what happened but I think the comments about what they look like has nothing to do with justice to be served for the victims. Its just funny people can sit behind a computer and say things about the men what they look like and where they should be. How about you worry about justice for the victims and not worrying about looks, Raiders front line and making those comments that just shows you have other reasons for leaving the comments to begin with!!!! Thank YOU

Cme, raiders fan? Criminal,apologist? Or just full of white guilt? I knew there had to be at least one Raider fan out there. You so carefully tiptoed around wanting to play the race card, but even casual Raider fans know the second string players are not all non-white. However, crime statistics tend to refute your righteous indignation. Now, you can get off your pedestal.

Actually RIGHT your NOT right at all!!! The race card is not at all what I am playing if I have a problem with someone I have no problem at all saying it I do NOT have to hide behind a computer and say it. I just thought it was funny to read the article and see your comment more worried about the suspects <which still have to go to trial> than the victims was strange being what did the Raiders have to do with anything? Oh and by the way RIGHT I am a huge 49er fan actually do NOT like the Raiders at all. But thanks for assuming that as you did everything else. And full of white guilt? Seriously???? You have no clue. Thanks again though but your NOT "RIGHT" at all!!!! PS The big words does nothing for you so get off your pedestal.....

"Suspect caught in Pleasanton home invasion robbery"

Shouldn't the headline be,

"Suspect in Pleasanton home invasion robbery caught"?

Cme, sorry to confuse you with big words. I'll try to use single syllabal words from this point ape, thug, etc.
Of course, I'm worried about the suspects, as you should be, when criminals stalk their victims and follow them back to their home. It could happen to you as you're returning from Hunter's Point after another losing football game. While I would never wish for that to happen to you, sometimes people learn lessons only by having to deal directly with a crisis.
Oh well, there's always next year......

I dunno, does anyone except me find it more than a tad funny that the two-digit IQ guy who is perpetually lost on these sites, tries to use a polysyllabic ... but ends up talking about silly balls? Like I've always said, there's a strong connection between racist hatred and surplus repression within the hateful ones. Here, we see it manifested in the Freudian slip: silly balls. Thanks again for your revealing commentary, RIGHT. You are too funny. Aren't you going to tell us what silly balled Mark Levin told you before you retire for the evening?
