Delivery Driver Arrested for Residential Burglary

Is your home protected?
Today at 12:45pm, an alert resident informed dispatchers of a notification from their home surveillance system alerting to motion inside their home. A male subject, unknown to the resident, was seen inside. The resident was able to provide dispatchers with a description of the male subject and of a vehicle in the driveway.  
Novato Police Officers arrived on scene while the suspect was still in the area and contacted the individual. The man identified himself as Maurice Kimball, a 27-year-old resident of Brentwood, CA and said he was a delivery driver. After a thorough investigation, Kimball was arrested by Novato Police officers for felony residential burglary. Kimball was booked into Marin County Jail. Over $10,000 worth of items were stolen during the burglary and have since been recovered.
In partnership with our community, we are committed to protect, serve, and create a safer Novato. We greatly appreciate the immediate action and accurate information from the resident, which allowed us to apprehend the suspect and recover their stolen property.
