Sponsored by:

Sonora, CA — The Tuolumne County Sheriff’s Office has cracked a burglary case.

Sgt. Jeff Wilson says an address on Plateau Road in Sonora was ransacked on May 5th and several items were stolen, including prescription medication.

A deputy found a fingerprint on a glass jar and it was sent to a Department of Justice laboratory. The finger print came back to match 39-year-old Gerald Kinder of Jamestown.

Kinder’s vehicle was seen in the area around the time burglary was reported. He has been arrested and booked into Tuolumne County Jail.
