A suspect from Oakland who used a stolen Porsche to commit a series of crimes throughout Marin County was finally arrested last week after months of investigation. 

According to the Marin County Sheriff’s Office, the suspect was identified as Jeffry Rivas Gomez, 22, and allegedly committed vehicle burglary, credit card fraud, and vehicle theft in Marin County. 

Law pursued Gomez, who used a stolen Porsche convertible to commit the crimes but was able to escape capture. 

Investigators discovered the Porsche was kept at a residence in Oakland and on October 25, saw Gomez get into the car. 

The Marin County Specialized Investigative Unit, along with the Oakland Police Department and California Highway Patrol, then detained the suspect.

A search warrant served at Rivas Gomez’s residence found evidence of stolen vehicles and stolen property, authorities said.

Rivas Gomez was arrested and booked into the Marin County Jail for five felonies related to vehicle theft and credit card fraud. 

Additionally, Rivas Gomez had an outstanding no-bail warrant for possessing a concealed firearm in public.
