STOCKTON, Calif. (KTXL) — A woman’s stolen laptop led deputies to arrest a man suspected of being in possession of multiple stolen items including a car, according to the San Joaquin County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies said they received a call about a stolen laptop on Saturday from a woman who lives in Union City. She told deputies that the laptop’s location services pinged it at a home in Stockton.

Officials went to the home on West Towery Court and discovered a stolen Toyota Corolla parked in the driveway. While they were investigating deputies say they saw 26-year-old Kristopher Fernandez go to the car.
