Increase in Prowling Case Seen in Sausalito
On Sunday, April 22, 2012, at approximately 10:11pm, the Sausalito Police Department responded to a report of a prowler in the 100 block of Pearl Street. Sausalito Police officers were on scene within a minute of being notified of the call and learned that a prowler had attempted to enter a residence through an unlocked back door. Officers from multiple jurisdictions made an extensive area search for the person but were unable to locate him.
On Monday, April 23, 2012, at about 3:32pm, officers from the Twin Cities Police Authority responded to a report of a suspicious person in the Corte Madera Town Center. Upon arrival, Twin Cities Police officers contacted Christopher Kimble, a 32 year old male resident of Marin City and Vallejo. Kimble, who is on probation out of Sonoma County for possession of stolen property, matched the description of the prowler from Pearl Street and was found to be in possession of a wallet taken from Spring Street. Upon discovery of the wallet, the Twin Cities Police officers arrested Kimble for possession of stolen property.
Kimble is in custody at the Marin County Jail with bail set at $10,000. Kimble is under investigation by Sausalito Police Department to link him to the Pearl Street residence.
At this time, police are unable to link Kimble to the four residential burglaries that occurred on Woodward Avenue and Laurel Lane.
