People v Ivin Capone Prince

On January 28, 2016, a jury found the defendant Ivin Capone Prince guilty of first degree residential burglary.

On May 25, 2015, around at 9:45 am, police responded to a call from an anonymous citizen to Suffolk drive in San Leandro. The citizen reported two men inside a neighbors house that she did not recognize.

San Leandro police units responded within six minutes of the 911 call and surrounded the house. Eventually both suspects exited the house and the police took them into custody without the use of force of any kind. The house had been ransacked. Luckily, neither the homeowner nor any occupants were present at the time of the break in.

The defendant was arrested along with another suspect and gave a statement saying that he had been heavily intoxicated the night before and didn't have a clear memory of how he had got inside the house. At trial, he testified to the same.

Defendant Ivin Prince has two felony convictions from 2012 and 2013 for cases involving robbery and domestic violence, respectively. He faces a prison sentence of six years when he is sentenced on February 29, 2016.

The case was prosecuted by DDA Matt Gaidos.
