Oakland man seized with stolen goods by Pleasanton police

Resident spots him at 3:45 a.m., calls police

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.

My guess is that they already have him in custody. Why incite the natives?

@William Tell & mooseturd-

LOL! Actually, the guy (Christopher Yorrie of Oakland) is white. ( Web Link ).

Pardon me while I have a laugh at your expense. Time to "self-deport" yourselves, guys.

"The Pleasanton Police Department encourages citizens to help reduce crime by immediately reporting suspicious behavior . . ."

Yeah, that and not leaving valuables in your car, or at least locking it.

Looks like a statistical anomaly. Understandable why he had to leave Oakland...he didn't fit in demographically and he tried to fit in criminally.

@Right
Your post makes no sense. But you already know that, right?

Bottom line: If you see some unknown guy (either white or black or asian or hispanic) frantically ransacking through your neighbor's car early in the morning, then call the police.

He must not have gotten the memo from his other jailhouse friends that Pleasanton is not easy money. Keep up the good work Pleasanton PD.

So sad that we think the victim is wrong because they did not lock their car - but that is the truth.

It doesn't matter what color the guy is just glad they got him.

Thank you neighbor for being alert and thank you PD for responding so quickly.

@ Sam - this must be a falsehood perpetrated by the all-lying media (of which you must work for giving your proliferation of misinformation on this message board). That's obviously a picture of Sean Penn without any make-up: Web Link.
