Travis Fields convicted for hot prowl residential burglary where victim was held at gun point while $30,000 in property stolen from home.
San Francisco, CA –Today, San Francisco District Attorney Brooke Jenkins announced that her office secured a conviction of Travis Fields (41) after trial by jury for his involvement in an armed home invasion burglary on September 2, 2021. Mr. Fields was convicted of first-degree residential burglary (PC 459), and auto burglary (PC 459), with an allegation that this residential burglary was a hot prowl found to be true.
“The jury’s verdict delivers justice to the victims of this home invasion case and holds Mr. Fields accountable,” said District Attorney Brooke Jenkins. “Home invasions, particularly when residents are at home, are terrifying for victims and communities; with justice served, we must stay vigilant and continue working to protect public safety.”
Mr. Fields was arrested on October 27, 2021 by San Francisco Police Department Investigators with assistance of the Stockton Police Department Tactical Unit on the 2400 block of Delaware Street in Stockton. Mr. Fields and two additional suspects followed two victims as they left their home on the 600 block of Paris Street and drove to a shopping center in South San Francisco. At the shopping center, they burglarized the couple’s unattended vehicle, stealing a garage opener that they used to access the home. Fields and two co-conspirators returned to the house and held a third victim at gun point while stealing approximately $30,000 of jewelry, cash, and designer bags.
The case against Mr. Fields was successfully prosecuted by Assistant District Attorney Edward Mario with assistance from the District Attorney Investigators Tim Weaver and Elizabeth Burson-Thomas, Victim Advocate Priscilla Portillo and Nori Kitaoka, Paralegals David Ma and Jennifer Java. Prosecutors were able to develop a strong case against Mr. Fields based on the outstanding investigative work performed by the San Francisco Police Department’s Robbery division.
“I would like to thank the jury for their careful consideration as to each of the charges,” said Assistant District Attorney Edward Mario. “Even when victims do not experience physical injury, home invasions leave a deep sense of personal violation and trauma. Mr. Fields will now be held accountable for his role in perpetrating that type of trauma.”
Mr. Fields was remanded into custody on June 9, 2023. He faces more than six years in State Prison. Sentencing is scheduled for July 5, 2023.
