Burglary suspects arrested after Oakland crash

Demian Bulwa, Chronicle Staff Writer
Wednesday, October 29, 2008

(10-28) 16:43 PDT OAKLAND – Authorities said today that two men who crashed a stolen car during a police pursuit in the Oakland hills Monday have been linked to at least 10 recent burglaries in the area.

As a result, some residents are wondering if the men may be part of a spree of crimes attributed to the "sticky bandits."

In some case, residents said, burglars have spray-painted the nickname on walls and furniture. It is the same name given to a pair of bumbling criminals played by Joe Pesci and Daniel Stern in the 1992 film "Home Alone 2: Lost in New York."

The suspects arrested Monday – Chas Langley, 24, of Marin City, and Kevin Simmons, 31, of Denver – often kicked in the front doors of homes they burglarized before making off with electronics and other items, police said.

Oakland police spokesman Officer Jeff Thomason said the men are being investigated in connection with more than 20 other daylight burglaries in the hills since September, as well as burglaries in Berkeley and Sausalito.

David Maduli, 33, said burglars entered his home near Mills College in Oakland through a side window Oct. 22, then took DJ equipment, a laptop, jewelry and cash and dumped out the contents of drawers and closets.

Maduli, who found "sticky bandits" painted above a doorway, said he did not know if the men arrested Monday had been linked to his burglary.

The men`s blue 1989 Honda was spotted in the hills after 2 p.m. Monday Thomason said. He said police officers who were already doing surveillance in the area chased them before the car crashed on the 2400 block of Mountain Boulevard.

The men tried to run but were captured, police said. A gun was found in the stolen car, Thomason said, as was some property belonging to burglary victims.
