Oakland man seized with stolen goods by Pleasanton police

Plus, other Pleasanton police actions through Feb. 17

An early-morning car burglar was busted Monday, thanks to a call from a resident on Camino Brazos. The caller reported seeing someone taking property from inside of his parked vehicle.

The thief then left the area on foot, but police set up a perimeter and found their suspect hiding in bushes near the intersection of Hansen Drive and Camino Brazos.

The suspect reportedly possessed 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.

Christopher James Yorrie, 40, of Oakland was arrested at about 4:04 a.m. Monday on a felony count of receiving stolen property, along with misdemeanor counts of prowling and probation violation. He was booked into Santa Rita Jail.

Police are giving credit to the Camino Brazos resident who reported the suspicious activity. They encourage residents to help fight crime by immediately reporting suspicious behavior.
