Diop was booked on charges that include burglary, kidnapping, kidnapping for ransom, false imprisonment, robbery, vehicle theft and conspiracy and is also being held in lieu of $1.5 million bail.

The first home invasion occurred on Halloween night and the second one happened on Nov. 26.

The robbery on Halloween night delayed police response to noise complaints at the Halloween party in neighboring Orinda which ended in gunfire and multiple deaths.

Two residents were injured in the second robbery when the armed suspects took advantage of an open garage door to gain entry into the home, assaulting the homeowner and ransacking the residence before fleeing.
