An Oakland man was arrested Tuesday by Pleasanton police with stolen goods taken from cars parked on Fairfield and Ridgevale roads and Camino Brazos.
The suspect, identified as 40 year old Christopher Yorrie of Oakland, was arrested and booked into Santa Rita Jail for possession of stolen property and prowling.
Sgt. Julie Fragomeli, Pleasanton police watch commander, said that at 3:45 a.m. Monday a resident on Camino Brazos reported seeing a man removing property from inside of his parked vehicle. The man then left the area on foot.
Responding police officers set up a perimeter blockade, then searched the area and located Yorrie hiding in some bushes near the intersection of Hansen Drive and Camino Brazos.
Property stolen from unlocked vehicles on the 5400 block of Ridgevale Road, the 2200 block of Fairfield Road and the 2100 block of Camino Brazos was located on the suspect.
Fragomeli said the capture of this suspect was due to a proactive resident's keen observations and his immediate reporting of suspicious activity to police.
"The Pleasanton Police Department encourages citizens to help reduce crime by immediately reporting suspicious behavior," she said in her report of the crime.
